“EASY LISTENING AS ART PRACTICE”
In the guise of my alter ego Giuseppe Marinetti, I have today released a digital mini album of songs that blends latin and swing music with political lyrics in a radical collage of quotations. Created as part of The Ballad of Skinny Lattes and Vintage Clothing, the album is entitled The Gentrification Suite and is available now to buy and to download at Bandcamp. The work tells the story of a young man who escapes the suburbs to hang out in Dalston/Williamsburg/Mitte. More info on the project at The Skinny Vintage Investment Corporation.

On that day we are launching the work at InTRANSIT festival at Salvage City, in a free performance at 5pm. Copies will be available at a special launch day price.
