The best kept secret in music

This is finally, the first time that Italian folk music is reviewd in FolkWorld ! Ned Ludd are a cool folk rock band from Rome, and this is their excellent debut album............."
"The texts are open and direct, with the musical arrangement always supporting the content of the songs, and any listener should feel moved their content. There is a lot of power in the music, and - although the texts are great- you can enjoy the music also without understending Italian.........."
"This is one of my favourite CDs I have heard this year......"

This is a wildly varied in style, but strangely interesting recording from this italian group who at times sound like early Oyster band and other times like a traditional outfit.Musically, they're at acoustic end of the spectrum (with accordion, mandolin, acoustic guitar and bouzouki)with the bass and drums providing the drive.The lyrics, all in Italian(with English translations)deal with unemployment, corruption and the loss of freedoms in their home country, and the vocals have an angry edge to them.
Englishman Ian lawther pops in on number of tracks playing bag and lowland pipes, and solos on a couple of tracks.Not the most accessible of recordings, but still an interesting example of how italian groups are using the roots of their own music to deal with modern problems"

Bio

We are a band formed in 1987 as a punk rock trio
Then we changed in a folk outfit playing italian folk music mixed to the celtic music, we are very fond of
You can find in our music influences from Public Enemy - Clash -italian sing-song writers too.
Our lyrics are very deep into social and political matters and sung in italian and language coming from Rome.
Our new cd is called Workanddignity only one word because there is no work without dignity.
