They have been together since 2008 and to date have released one album (“Wanted”) and one EP (“Tall Tales”) and are established as one of the best live acts in Ireland.
The band has a truly international feel, incorporating members from four different countries: Claudio Mercante – guitarist and vocals, from Italy; Darren Flynn – basstist and vocals, from Ireland, Sebastian Jezzi – drums, percussion and vocals, from Argentina, Guillermo González Rodríguez – pianist from Spain and Alessandro Moro – drums, also from Italy. Everyone shares songwriting duties, meaning that a lot of different influences (and a lot of strange stories!) end up in the mix!
To date they have released two records – Wanted (2011) and Tall Tales (2013) – both available on iTunes.

State.ie: If you like great music and energy that borders on menacing then this is the band for you. Combining a rootsy, rockabilly music with a rather abrasive vocal delivery and lyrics that absolutely insist on further listening, this band were unlike much else on display at this years showcase(Hard Working Class Heros – Nov. 2012)
Hot Press: “exuberant...rough, ready and raucous” (2011)
