The Boomers -The band lined up in 2004, Rome – Italy, around vocalist and guitar player Marco (ex Overlord) and drummer Fausto (ex Manimal), two animators of the Roman punk’n’roll scene between the 80’s and the 90’s. The duo was joined by Alessandro (Fight like a brave and Fumo passivo), young and eclectic guitar player from Alghero, and decided to remain a trio without bass guitar…The band has just finished to record his first CD with 11 originals and 2 covers: “Glad to see you go” as a dutiful tribute to the Ramones and a very personal version of Doors’ “The end”.

“Halfway between the junkyard of comedy and cock rock, peppered with Italian pop sensibility, sweet riffing and awesome accents, we give you the first ever Ether selection from Rome. Enter The Boomers. Suckingly, there’s only two songs up on their page, but they are fairly amazing, borderline classic tracks… oh yeah, and they both end with “Man”, man. “The Conquer Man” is a mix between the sing-song brilliance of Claypool’s Primus and the best Hives track ever recorded. And “The Second Coming Man”, if you can believe it, is about one part Johnny Cash and another ZZ Top Italia, but please… don’t listen to my retarded comparisons, just check out The Boomers. (Again: the killer logos do not let up.)” (

If I ever had a punk rock band… here’s the logo:

By the way, Andrew Bianchi, a punk teenager from Rhode Island, shares my same nickname (Andy War). Meet him at He’s a great fan of Hibakusha from Providence, a band that deserves attention starting from it’s name.

Falling in Love

I’m working on a song by NOFX, “Falling in Love” from the “So long and thanks for all the shoes” album. This is the intro. I’m not sure, but I think I’ll start all over again. I’m sick and tired of all this tracing.
