Micah P. Hinson
The term "troubadour" is used way too easily today, but no one embodies the spirit of the original meaning more than Micah P. Hinson. Proudly hailing from the giant state of Texas, the blunt and sincere lyrics have always worked in harmony with Mr. Hinson's southern "legacy" to produce incredibly unique songs. Anyone who knows little of the story of Micah P. Hinson will surely know that there have been several times in his life where it really came close to an apocalypse. Death and rebirth have often alternated throughout his career, whether it was a serious back injury, a violent car accident, the temporary loss of the use of his arms, time spent behind bars or time spent in the company of bizarre characters of every shape and size.
Guano Padano are Alessandro "Asso" Stefana (guitar with a solo album and collaborations with Vinicio Capossela and PJ Harvey), Zeno De Rossi (drums, also with a collaboration with Vinicio Capossela) and Danilo Gallo (bass). Their sound reminiscent of the timeless melodies of Morricone's films is combined with jazz, folk and psychedelic harmonies.
