Wildmen

Brawling Italian punk on a boozed-up bender with garage pop
Your body's like a banquet, can I have another bite?
lyrics from I Spit On Your Grave

While all the world kept wondering about the future, the Wildmen, a blasphemous duo born from the union of "Evil & Ugly", had already foreseen with the Gregorian Calendar at hand the arrival of 2013, exactly by the month of March.

They started playing the only instruments left on the field, as it already happened to the proto jazzmen of New Orleans during the American Civil War, and from silvery bits of drums and loose guitar strings they started pulling out a stream of raw garage pop that feels like it’s never gonna stop. On stage, with the same violence of the Mississippi when it flows in its delta, turning each venue into a factory of whistling ears, loopy heads and, more than anything, shaking butts.

After a radical European tour in 2012, the singles "20.000$" and "I Spit On Your Graves" (yeah, the video clip that seems to be inspired by "La Grande Bouffe"), the lethal split "Drunkula" feat. Capputtini 'I Lignu, now the two instrumented perverts know that you are ready to listen to their first Long Playing, which was out March 14th on Shit Music For Shit People.

That's why they're ready to tour again in Italy and the rest of Europe, just so that girls and wild boys know that garage'n'roll lives and still kicks asses. For lovers of Black Flag, but also for followers of bands such as Ty Segall and Black Lips, the debut album is certainly a record to have and their live shows are an appointment which shouldn’t be missed.

"Haters Gonna Hate" is officially the first single off the Wildmen's debut album - which was out on 1st February in Digital Download. Wildmen, their s/t debut album, was released on the 14th of March, in both vinyl and digital download formats.
