Biography

BAGIO is a Duo consisting of Uwe BAstiansen on guitar and Muck GIOvanett on drums. We play in bands since the early / late 80ties and had releases with Abwärts, Happy Grindcore, Hrubesch Youth, Mask for, Station 17, Teer gleene Muck and others.
BAGIO isn’t a regular “Rock”-Band. We have lots of changes and odd rhythms to whom the audience can still shake their heads, sometimes more wild, sometimes soft, but suddenly the will find them self shaking in the opposite direction. We suggest to name it Be Bop Hardcore. Others say ADHD-music (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Dysfunction), or Avant-Garde.
We go also a reference from Charles Hayward (Ex- THIS HEAT): „Astonishing, very new. … I recognised similar solutions to working with limited resources, an intelligent mobility crossed with physicality.”
A Music-Magazine wrote, that our music would have been released earlier on SST or Enemy and we probably would have played Knitting Factory“.

Discography

So far we have released two CD-EP’s under the FIDEL BASTRO label, “Live, Unterm Durchschnitt” (August 05, 5 tracks, sold out) and “II” (June 06, 6 tracks). A special edition together with a DVD can also be found in several German libraries. Are we now upper class culture? Let’s see what the music critics will write. To picture BAGIO yourself you can find several songs, lot more live clips, photos and audience-comments on www.bagio.org or www.myspace.com/realbagio.

Set List

Our set so far is about 50 minutes with songs who have lots of different parts and changes, but we have to prepare about an hour of basics for a kind of improvised show with Damo Suzuki (Ex-CAN) at Schipphorst Avantgarde-Festival in july.
