Let’s Do It Again
Out now via Damaged Goods
“From Roma, neo-bovver rockers get stomping. Recalling the stack-heeled sounds of Slade, The Sweet and The Faces plus the “junk shop glam”, Romans Giuda do their bit for similarly no pretention, high energy rocking with their debut, Racey Roller.”
Giuda (pronounced JEW-DA) are an Italian five-piece band from Rome, born from the ashes of one of the finest European punk rock groups, Taxi. They play the most exciting kind of retro-sounding pub rock and junk shop glam and they have the look of true working class heroes (boots, polos, chequered shirts, leather jackets and short or shaved hair).
Their first album, Racey Roller which was described by Robin Wills (The Barracudas) as “Cock Sparrer twinned with the Equals”, became an underground sensation and praised by publications as diverse as Mojo, Rolling Stone and Maximum Rock’n’Roll.
Their second album, Let’s Do It Again is out now on Damaged Goods.
Recorded with analog equipment and strictly-70’s instruments by Danilo Silvestri, the record’s producer along with guitarist, Lorenzo Moretti, Let’s Do It Again continues on the musical path outlined by Racey Roller while improving the song-writing process with more complex structures and catchier melodies, without losing any of the spontaneity and energy.
Although the band openly admit their influences, including early 70’s rock giants like Slade, The Sweet and T-Rex, semi-obscure junkshop glam acts like Hector and Jook, Vanda & Young’s pre-AC/DC Aussie rock and Slaughter And The Dogs and Eddie and The Hot Rods’ pub rock/punk, the Rome-based quintet have managed to create a truly original sound, making them one of the most happening bands on the international rock’n’roll scene.
