It’s was 2007 when we did our first interview with Enrico. The years passed and the guys are hit the road with a new album: Let’s Do It!,they prepare a new tour in South America and are here to stay. Here’s for the good times.
Ciao Enrico, it’s been awhile since we spoke last time in 2007. How are you?
Hi Mircea, really nice heard about you after long time….here everything is moving like 7 years ago…Los Fastidios, Kob Records, Virtus Verona….only I have closed my records shop (now I have only on line shop) and I changed something in my private life….
First of all congrats for the new material,i did listen the preview, what is his story?
Thanx mate, I’m really excited for this new album, Let’s do it is the title….it born in the last 6 months with the new line up…i really love this album, a typical Los Fastidios album with something more than the past….I hope you will enjoy it
Since 1991, you are the only constant member in LF, tell me about the „new” members…
Not easy to be part of Los Fastidios, a lot of concerts everywhere in Europe, always ready to start for new shows….sometimes personal work or family cannot permit to do it….In the last 3 years we played not so much for these problems…at the end two old members dedided to step aside and make room to the two new members Mario (guitar) and Dave (drumset) who entered in the band last may with a big enthusiasm !!! Dave is an old friend, seeing it was the drummer of the old band of Alvise (our bass player) and he already played with us in the past few times when the old drummer had some problems with his back. Mario is a young guy, a great guitar player, who was playing together with Dave in a combat band called Hate the Nation.
How things are moving with KOB?
Not easy life at the moment for indipendent labels in Italy….big problems with the distribution and more a lot of punk rock shops are closed now…..so we cannot work like in the past…..we released in the last year an album of Guacamaya (italian combat band) and the album of Cantiniero (italian ska band)…..now the new Los Fastidios album and in few weeks the new Merdonalds (italian punk hc band)….
Tell me what you do beside LF,KOB and Virtus Fans:)
All this things really fill much my life…..I’m really lucky because I can do all of this together my girlfriend Elisa (she is involved in Kob, Virtus Fans and she is the tour manager of the band) and so I can have time to stay also together with her
Last time in your top 10 when we did it few years back were: Cock Sparrer,86 Crew, Simaryp,Specials…still the same this time eh?
Maybe you forget also The Housemartins (my favourite band of ever), The Smiths, the Oppressed…..yes nothing is changed
I saw many good bands that don’t exist anymore and many of the old ones coming back in force, music is still here for the good people,good labels are still here…how hard it is to keep the flame still burning?
It’s not easy….but I think when you have passion in your heart and you have something to say….everything is possible !!!!
I know your love for football, please make me a team of players from the bands that you listen to.
I’m not a trainer….just a supporter…..and I prefere to stay in the terraces than in the ground
I saw few concerts for LF, where you guys will play in the near future?
A big tour is waiting for us…in the next months we will tour all of Europe and in june for the first time we will fly to South America for a tour in Brazil, Chile, Argentina, Colombia…..
Few words for our 5 readers please:)
Take your passion in your heart….and may you become proud !!!
Thank you so much for your time Enrico and if you want to add something else please do so.
Keep it up! Thanx to you Mircea and to all the comrades (like you) everywhere in the world give their all to sustain and support the scene !!!! Let’s do it
