Their new and third so far CD, “Fez Club” contains a cover of the Eighties’ hit single Paradise, produced by and played with the famous Sicilian trumpeter Roy Paci (Aretuska, Manu Chao, Radio Bemba, Mau Mau and thousand others). The video clip of Paradise, which you also find on this CD, was directed by Cosimo Alemà (Apollo440, Vibrazioni, Verdena and many others).
Fez Club also features a collaboration with Circus Contraption, a dark circus band from Seattle as well as with Italy’s acclaimed parody theater company Banda Osiris. Their songs here mix different languages (Serbian, English) besides the main Italian used by the band.
It’s music to dance to wildly with a lot of fun! Figli dress in elegant lounge suites and their live show is electric and sexy. If you can imagine a Balkan brass section playing with a cool rock band, you’re close to the atmosphere of their show.
The result, quoting Tamara Turner, CD Baby Music Editor/Reviewer, is “a genetically-compromised combination of Danny Elfman, Tom Waits, the Cramps, plenty of mad scientists, and the Count from Sesame Street, all having taken up Klezmer-polka-ska-swamp-o-billy… it's unusual, it's quirky, it will spread smiles better than a virus.”
The best of both worlds – the brass power and craziness of the Balkans combined with the sophistication of Italian gentleman’s croon. In two words: SPAGHETTI BALKAN!
