“The Trip Takers” project starts in September 2015 in Messina after the meeting between Carmelo Gazzè and Manuel Rotella. The first one, multi-instrumentalist with beat garage training formation and a massive list of collaborations behind (Convulsed in primis), veteran from the long-standing experience with the Out Key Hole band and with strong intent on continuing the interrupted path of Anglo-Californian’s atmospheres; the second one, young beatnik not so much attracted to the new musical trends belonging to his generation and thus on the constant research for fertile soils of the past.
The band is completed by Giuseppe Mangano, with a recent past with the Out Key Hole too, and later particularly active in alternative multiform projects.
After first record of The Trip Takers Ep, band starts for first promotional Tour in Italy and Germany.
Actually they’re recording new 45 rpm out next spring and preparing second European Tour.
