BeMyDelay a.k.a. Marcella RiccardiSonntag, 14. Oktober
is a composer, singer, guitarist and multi-instrumentalist living in Bologna, Italy. She works solo and with others. “ToComeOutToTheOtherSide”, her first solo record, is inspired by prewar blues, texas psychedelics and sacred music.
From 2004 until now she played three coast-to-coast tour in US, many european tours and more than one hundred gigs in Italy with her bands or alone. A second BeMyDelay’s Lp will be released at the end of 2012.
Her music has been described as “Vocal-based drones that glow and grow beneath the surface of haunted caravan songs” (Foxy Digitalis) or “Tranced out Ur-Velvets drones and ecstatic Shirelles-in-space vocals that evoke feelings of the past decades of great radio songs as though experienced from within your mamaʼs belly” (Julian Cope- Address Drudion-may 2011)
She will be on tour along with Maurizio Abate, that will play a solo set which explores the sonic-psychedelic potentialities of hurdy-gurdy, mixing cosmic-rock attitudes to more hypnothic and meditative textures.
Maurizio Abate is a guitarist and multi-instrumentalist that has been playing in many different psychedelic projects: Neokarma Jooklo with David Vanzan and Virginia Genta; Eternal Zio with Rella The Woodcutter, Valla and Raubaus; Asabikeshiinh with Roberto Maggioni and Golden Cup with Luca Massolin. Among all his collaborations Maurizio played also with Makoto Kawabata (Acid Mother Temple), finnish double-bass player Tero Kemppainen and Tasaday.
Imagine John Fahey recording The Transfiguration of Blind Joe Death after he’s lost his keys, watched his team lose and found his lady in bed with his previously loyal horse - that’s about the level of intensity we’re looking at on this one (…) pretty staggering to be honest.. (Brett-Norman Records)
As a solo guitarist, he places himself beside strings phenomena as James Blackshaw, Harris Newman, Ben Chasny or Jack Rose during his more experimental phase. (Radio 6 Public Radio-Holland)
A sublime collisions of John Fahey-esque acid guitar picking set against trance-indulged eastern raga(…) The love he puts on every single touch of his strings, the warmth and the beauty of these sounds captured on an analog tape recorder for the first time, reveal the perfect symbiosis between the man and his music. Highly psychedelic.
