News are,as you can see, many and -we hope - all interestring

After the succesful tour of  Rudi Protrudi & The Others, set by  our Association during the past December, we've been able to set anoter tour in April with Link Protrudi and The Jaymen, while right now,,during the next weeks, di Giugno there will be 3 shows of the mighty  Fuzztones - the newyorkline-up of "Lysergic Emanations" ,finally back in Italy after 13 years! We tried very hard to set a whole tour but due to the hot weather in June all the  clubs close,so we definitely wanna try in September/October, as we've been asked also by many clubs in Spain, Germany, Swiss, North Italy,that might be the right time for a longer and better advertised tour.We'll keep you posted in time don't worry!

Since the Autumn we definitely wanna set more tours,we'll try to bring back bands like the incredibly great scottish  Thanes and the new sensational Saturn V featuring Orbit (both have releases available on out labels) as well as many other bands we know since so long,all interested in playing in south Europe.

We are still not sure about the exact date of the MISTY LANE FESTIVAL in Rome ,but it'll take place in Autum probably,we'll let you know,obviously!
