Biography

Artrocker-approved Disco Drive formed in Turin (Italy) back in 2002 and they have played about 210 shows since, some of them were with The Black Keys, El Guapo/Supersystem, Q And Not U, Oneida, Twisted Charm, Black Eyes, The Long Blondes, Out Hud, The Thermals, Metronomy, The Organ, Cazals, Deerhoof, Help She Can't Swim and many others, to a growing fanbase, all over the old continent.

Their sound has been described as: The Clash queuing to get inside Studio 54 meets Ian MacKaye unwrapping his birthday gift to find out it’s a Tito Puente album. Slave to the rhythm!
Musically they begin where all the neo-new wave bands end. They allow themselves to delve into experimentation. The percussion and drums already present on their debut album are now to the fore more than ever. Live, the three vocalists between them play two drumkits, guitar and bass.

Back in Italy, Disco Drive are big news. Their debut album is already into its third pressing. They have collected many awards including best Italian debut of 2005. And they were nominated by MTV Italy as one of the top 5 live bands of 2005.

Disco Drive redefine the boundaries between noise and melody, rhythm and improvisation, pop
and the avant-garde.
Their current album is called "What's Wrong With You, People?" and there’s an EP called "Very EP".

Set List

We usually play 30 to 45 minutes.
Lots of jamming when we feel like jamming.
Lots of noise, energy, sweating, fun.
We play some of our songs, we never play the same setlist for very long, cause we don't want to get bored. If we ever play a cover, it's "Now I Wanna Sniff Some Glue" by The Ramones but you'll hardly get it.
In the past we used to play "Fortunate Son" by Creedence Clearwater Revival and "In The Basement" by Etta James but they're gone now.
