BARMUDAS were born and raised in the BARmuda district in Florence’s old town, the immaginary triangular neighborhood still unknown to the hordes of hungry zombi-tourists looking for cheap italian food, style and art; a place infested and hounted with outsiders, loosers, boozers, and strange people with poor taste in look, music and artistic stuff (often disappearing into the void after passing the night getting high in the area). Barmudas is today the last bastion against the invasion of hipsters, indie posers, coffee shakers, cover bands, fashion influencers and snob-intellectual people crowding downtown Florence. No wonder the band that shares the district’s name has got just a few and simple guiding principles: GLAM, PUNK, SHOTS, BEERS, KILLER RIFFS, BADABOOM BANG PARTIES
An old and genuine recipe, but be sure to double check the dosage …
So, here comes the band’s debut single, made of two killer tracks, like bands used to do in Slade, Sweet and T-Rex times. Now as in those days we have a wild R’n’R opening on the A side while on the B side we find a wonderful ballad that will make you shake your ass with its lilting rhythm!
THE STORY SO FAR …
Barmudas were born in Florence in 2017 from the meeting of 4 guys with differents musical and geographical backgrounds who found themselves sharing the same common punk rock roots and the same love and addiction for the glam rock of the seventies. They also share many years of live experience, having played almost everywhere, in big festivals and huge stages as well as little pubs or dirty streets. Tripping high and low across Italy and abroad, in a long list of mostly unknown bands (Malasuerte, The Dirtiest, The Fossils, The Nackers, Thee Incredible Livers, The Asteroids, Ematoma, The Snatchers). Nonetheless each one of those formations played an important role in turning the Barmudas’ boys into the rock n roll machines they are today. The 15th of october 2018 AREA PIRATA records release their first single: “Rock the Barmudas” available on vinyl 7” and digital download.
