Jealousy Party

1995
Firenze, Italy

Jealousy Party, active fiorentine ensemble from 1995, rape the suggestions of the free music (jazz and not only), avant-rock , the disturbed and unsociable electronics, squirts of songs, saxs, laptop and cds in flames and histrionic vocal manipulations.

The mutant project expresses with delirium and destructured transparency the synthesis among creative astractism, expressive urgency, mad avant-gardist, theatricality and punk attitude.

Jealousy Party is an open-project from Firenze, headed by Roberta WJ Meatball and Mat Pogo. They are active since 1995 but they started releasing records only in 2006 after ten years of live performances and studio works. The band revolves around the stable duo of WJM and Pogo and involves collaborations with several different artsists like Jacopo Andreini (L’Enfance Rouge, Tsigoti), Andrea Caprara (Tanake, Tsigoti), Edoardo Ricci, Nicotina, Jimmy Gelli and many others, each one contributing different shades and perspectives on the sound of the group.

Jealousy Party’s music escape any cathegorization, being capable to blend togheter free-jazz improvisation with proto-funk, vocal dadaism and primordial voodoo-rock with glitch electronica. A very colourful range of sounds which reaches his full effect in their explosive live shows. Putting all togheter James Brown, Kid606 and Art Ensemble of Chicago? Yes they can.

After their first two albums Now and Again the band recorded their most comfortable moment, the live act and put it on a record.
The recordings took place in Rome at Hold’em Club.

Talibam! is one of the most potent and fascinating bands in today’s music scene. The five plus years of interplay between Mottel and Shea has created one of the most unique and exciting live shows and some of the most powerfully recorded documents of any era. At a time when most culture sticks to conservative niche opportunities, Talibam! is interested in expansion and exploration; they manage to part the sea by not sticking to genre, aesthetic predisposition or the usual norms of what being a ‘band’ is. More inclined to put on a show that any and all will like, and not be stymied by “avant” type-casting, they have won over both unsuspecting and in the “know” audiences worldwide. The energy of Kevin Shea‘s full steam drumming is not to be missed, nor is the primal tone of Mottel‘s synth run through a Marshall Half Stack.
