Let me start off by saying that I really like the new blogger interface. The old one drove me absolutely crazy; the window was too small to work in, the images didn't upload in order, and half the time it wouldn't save my work. The update is beyond welcomed.

Anyhoo, Johnny Mox is the project of the italian multi-instrumentalist Gianluca Taraborelli (awesome last name). In his own words: 

"We = Trouble combines gospel, spirituals, blues, with a raw punk influence. Through the construction of real-time loop, Mox works overlapping choral harmonies, beatbox noises and creating an edgy and original sound. A castle of voices, pedals and beatboxes meticulously stacked one inside the other. The result is a sort of skeletal Gospel pierced by rusty noise and heated by electronic grafts. Ossessive spirituals for punks in search of redemption, nailed Soul, millions of growing voices trapped in the rib cage, ready to grow and devour wires and amplifiers."
