Feeling a bit camera shy


Taking their name from a Margaret Atwood novel, Edible Woman started in 2001 as a super-noisy instrumental trio composed by original band members Andrea Giommi (bass), Nicola Romani (drums) and Giacomo Governatori (guitar). After the addition of singer Luca Giommi, the band launched itself in a long series of concerts and finally took some time in 2004 to release its first album “Spare Me / CALF” (Psychotica Records).
Now fusing a monolithic approach to math rock with flashes of crystal-clear melodies and sounding like a weird mix of Jesus Lizard and Neil Young, Edible Woman was ready to hit the Italian and European stages once again (sharing the stage, among others, with bands like Karate, El Guapo and The Thermals).
After a long string of concerts, Giacomo Governatori left in 2005 and remaining band members chose to record their sophomore effort as a quartet introducing keyboardist Federico Antonioni in place of a guitarist. Released in 2007 again for Psychotica records, “The Scum Album” squeezed the best out of the bass/ organ/ drums line-up, updating the old Screamers urgency lesson with an ear for harmony and weird time signatures. Showing a bizarre amalgamation of hardcore punk, abrasive synth sounds and an almost pop approach to songwriting, the album gained the band excellent reviews and cemented their status as major exponents of the Italian noise scene, alongside other groups like ZU and Lento.
On tour again and after more supporting slots for bands as different as J Mascis’ Witch and Jennifer Gentle, in early 2009 Edible Woman members were back in studio to record their most ambitious project to date: “Everywhere At Once”, came out in Italy march 19th 2010 and will be available in the rest of europe on December 6 2010.
