BUÑUEL
(Us-IT Profound Lore Rec)

BUNUEL is the sound of a difficult situation made worse by an unwillingness and an inability to play nice. If slotting it in a genre makes it easier for you to understand, just so you have something to file it under, mark it down as Heavy. With a capital H.
But not heavy that’s in any way predictable, BU UEL’s amalgam of angular rhythms, drum salvos, blitzkrieging guitars and vocals that sound more like threats than promises is post-punk, proto heavy and arty up the ass. Arty as in avant-garde noise.

Named after the Spanish filmmaker Luis Bunuel, the only filmmaker to first make his bones by making good on what happens when straight razors meet eyeballs, BU UEL’s newest Killers Like Us — the third part of a trilogy that started with A Resting Place for Strangers, and then The Easy Way Out – is a killer addition to the canon of good music for bad people.

Produced by a near-super group of global significance BU UEL boasts the sound work of the Italian trio of guitarist Xabier Iriondo (Afterhours), the bass of Andrea Lombardini (The Framers), and the drums of Francesco Valente (Snare Drum Exorcism), along with the vocals of Eugene S. Robinson (OXBOW).

Eugene S. Robinson, vocals, lyricist and owner of the 44 magnum revolver on the record cover has spent the last 30 plus years with American art terrorists OXBOW.
Xabier is the deus-ex-machina of some of Italy’s most adventurous musical projects as both guitarist and sound manipulator for dozens of bands on more than 50 records with major and independent labels whose work has seen him playing live on three continents. And counting.

Andrea Lombardini, a composer, producer and electric bass beast has been playing in Italian and international jazz, pop, rock and just about everything with everyone including most significantly David Binney, Mark de Clive-Lowe, Jason Lindner, Richard Julian, Michel Godard and many more.
