GIUDA - "Let's Do It Again" LP (North American Release)

Been awhile hammerheads, check out the latest LP we did on TKO from Giuda. Glam Bootboy Rock & Roll.

BUY "Let's Do It Again" LP:

BUY "Racey Roller" LP:


"It would take a hard-hearted rocker indeed not to find great joy in Giuda's second album. This five-piece from Rome (featuring members of noted Euro punks Taxi) play stompy, super-melodic garage-glam with a pitch-perfect level of cheap gloss, doting retroism and quite glorious silliness. From Wild Tiger Woman's honky-tonking strut via Yellow Dash's Slade-ish lollop to Teenage Rebel's faintly psych-pop shimmer, the hooks are relentless, the playing unfussily skilful and the charm unfailing. That's before you even get to the song about that time Giuda won the World Cup (it was 1-0; it's not entirely clear who they were playing against), or the sleek, almost spacey homage to the wearing of wheels on one's feet that is album highlight Roller Skates Rule OK (to be enjoyed in conjunction with that quite glorious album cover). Bright, brilliant and clearly actually rather big of heart, Giuda are beyond a joke, in the best possible way." - the Guardian

"When a band is described as ?the new Gary Glitter? ? by legendary pop Svengali Kim Fowley, no less ? and their label proudly slap the quote on their website rather than irately demanding a retraction, you?re entitled to wonder what the hell is going on. The answer: Italian quintet Giuda are the greatest ?70s glam-rock band to have existed since? the 1970s. Bedecked with more handclaps and tambourines than a Pentecostal church, their second album starts with a Mud reference (?Wild Tiger Woman?), cribs from The Sweet?s ?Blockbuster? (?Teenage Rebel?) and reaches a conceptual zenith with the song title ?Roller Skates Rule OK?. Their zeal for time travel would be frightening if they didn?t write such stomping tunes." - Noel Gardner / NME

"Rome's premier 70s yob-rock torch bearers present the first 45 from their second LP; Let's Do It Again. Wild Tiger Woman is an effervescent stomp-along with a tongue-in-cheek video filmed at the Villaggio Olimpic, built for the 1960 Rome Olympics. Pre-emptinglikely queries, guitarist Lorenzo Moretti declare that GIUDO do indeed dig Tiger Feet by Mud. "We really love the unpretentious high-energy rock and roll of Mud and yes, a part of our dance is taken from the clip of Tiger Feet on Top Of The Pops from 1974. It was our small tribute to Les Gray." Questo e pulito!" - Mojo Magazine

Anybody from any mags, blogs or that kinda get down....hit me up:
