“Terra!” (Land!) is what a crew of monkeys shouts at the sight of the moon, just before landing their spaceship on it to roam and explore the satellite’s craters and seas.
This is the image behind the first album of “Le Scimmie sulla Luna”, produced by LA RIVOLTA RECORDS with the support of Puglia Sounds. Risen from the ashes of Teenage Riot, a band which in recent years had many a success playing all across the peninsula, Le Scimmie sulla Luna, from Lecce, made a record which tastes international and experimental.
The sound of the band is a balance of tight rhythms and grooves that wink at funk, math and post-rock: hypnotic guitars seem to turn into synthesizers, moving from lively and melodic riffs to experimental contortions through massive use of delays and synth pedals. The goal of the band is to find the contact point of different musical genres and approaches, emphasizing and at the same time going beyond the dichotomy between what is “rock” and what is not.
The album, after one year of writing, was recorded and produced by Paolo del Vitto at “Laboratori Musicali”, Trepuzzi (LE).
Le Scimmie sulla Luna are: Cristiano Metrangolo (guitar), Stefano Greco (bass), Jory Stifani (guitars, synth), Luca Greco (drums).

BIO

In the summer of 2015 Teenage Riot released its debut album
“Scimmie sulla luna”.
Two years later, in 2017, two thirds of the band, Cristiano Metrangolo and Stefano Greco, with Luca Greco (Izo) and Jory Stifani (Uro) gave birth to the new project “Le Scimmie sulla Luna”
After the 2011 self-produced EP “Songs about…”, Teenage Riot started promoting autonomously its work all across Italy, self-financing the recording of the first album, which was published and produced in 2015 by Salento label “La Rivolta Records”.
From the album “Scimmie sulla luna”, previewed on Rockit and Rockerilla and distributed by SELF in all record stores and digital stores, two singles were extracted: “Dopamina” and “La scimmia sulla luna”. The music videos were shot and directed by Pierfrancesco Marinelli for “Mork Produzioni”, which also worked with Bud Spencer Blues Explosions and Motta.
In the autumn of 2015, Italian cartoonist and author “Gipi” chose the single “La scimmia sulla luna” as the soundtrack for a series of promotional videos for his project “Bruti”.
A two years promotional tour followed the album, where the band, playing in several Italian cities, had the chance to share the stage with bands like Subsonica, Post C.S.I., Dave Rowntree (Blur), The Telescopes, I Cani, The Skins, Enfance Rouge, Ulan Bator, Calibro 35.
