“Giuda is the new Gary Glitter. Glam Rockers for the 21st Century” Kim Fowley“From Roma, neo-bovver rockers get stomping. Recalling the stack-heeled sounds of Slade, The Sweet and The Faces plus the “junk shop glam”, Romans Giuda do their bit for similarly no-pretension, high energy rocking with their debut Racey Roller.” MOJO
“Giuda are the best band we’ve seen all year!
They’ve ram-raided the vaults of 70′s glam, punk and rock ‘n’ roll to make a foot-stomping, fist-pumping riot of sound that has the scenesters, the punks and rockers and young and old in attendance going nuts.” Vive Le Rock
“Giuda are a force to be reckoned with. They’ll be famous. Actually, they already are” Rumore
“This is the perfect sound for life on the terraces, in the discos, at a gig, at the pub and in the streets, always with Giuda blasting in your ears” RollingStone
“Their performance in the Buffalo Bar, in London, transported me back to the heady days of watching punk groups play in the back rooms of dodgy London pubs in 1977”
Phil King (Lush, Jesus and Mary Chain)
“After 10 years of utter mediocrity where nothing new means anything, it’s a wondrous occasion when a record jumps out and grabs you by the unmentionables”
Robin Wills (Barracudas)
“When I heard Racey Roller I was pissing my pants laughing, because it’s so brilliant, so exhilarating and fun” Joe Elliott (Def Leppard)
After selling 10,000 copies of their amazing Racey Roller 2010 debut album, originally out on US label Dead Beat records and later repressed by Damaged Goods in the UK and TKO in California, GIUDA are now back with their much anticipated second LP: Let’s do it Again is scheduled for release on November 16, once again on Damaged Goods.
After eighteen months of non-stop touring throughout Europe and the United States, with rave reviews in some of the most influential international magazines, like MOJO and RollingStone, and with a huge following of enthusiasts screaming “I’m A Giuda Fan” (the slogan printed on their patches and t-shirts), including a slew of musicians like Phil King (The Jesus and Mary Chain/Lush), Robin Wills (Barracudas), Kim Fowley, Tony Barber (Buzzcocks), Tesco Vee (Meatmen) and Tony Sylvester (Turbonegro), the five members of Giuda locked themselves in the studio to create the follow-up to their acclaimed debut.
Recorded with analog equipment and strictly-70’s instruments by Danilo Silvestri, the record’s producer along with guitarist Lorenzo Moretti, Let’s do it again continues on the musical path outlined by Racey Roller while improving the song-writing process with more complex structures and catchier melodies, yet without losing an ounce of spontaneity and energy.
Although the band openly admit their influences, including early 70’s rock giants like Slade, The Sweet and T-Rex, semi-obscure Junkshop Glam acts like Hector and Jook, Vanda & Young’s pre-AC/DC Aussie rock and Slaughter And The Dogs and Eddie and The Hot Rods’ pub rock/punk, with Let’s do it again the Rome-based quintet have managed to create a truly original sound, making them one of the most happening bands on the international rock’n’roll scene.
10 songs, 10 glam-pop-rock’n’roll anthems that will get listeners hooked from the very first spin, with aggressive guitars blending perfectly with powerful and infectious vocals, over bouncy and pounding beats.
Giuda’s vision is made up of (tall, very tall) platform boots, football (AS Roma, to be precise), roller skates and a healthy dose of the Bay City Rollers. Nothing is left to chance in the GIUDA world, including Tony CrazeeKid’s graphics, illustrating his visceral passion for certain specific 70’s atmospheres.
The five-piece, Lorenzo Moretti (guitar/vocals), Ntendarere Damas (lead vocals), Michele Malagnini (guitar), Danilo Valerii (bass) and Daniele Tarea (drums), fully embody the original rock’n’roll principle: that of having fun!
Giuda have no desire to indulge in intellectualism or enlighten their audience with analyses and reflections on life, death or love. They have no right answers to offer, yet their sound and lyrics have the vitality, urgency and spontaneity of the very essence of rock’n’roll!
