The Strange Flowers carrier spam over 3 decades, having the band been founded in Pisa in 1987. A constant trademark of their path is an incredible ability of getting close to true success and celebrity and systematically blowing it or being overcome by unpredictable drawbacks. Yet, this somehow poetic feature almost always reflected some sort of purity, the refuse of compromising, the will of keeping the integrity and the honesty of a musical project which purposes were fulfilled regardless of success.
The Strange Flowers have released six full lenght albums, a couple of EPs and singles plus some other stuff. They have performed countless gigs all over Europe and have shared the stage with psychedelic legends as The Electric Prunes, The Fuzztones, The Prime Movers, making them known as one of the most remarkable acts of modern psychedelic rock, also thanks to their videoshows.
The current line-up includes Michele Marinò (vocals & guitars, 1987-present), Nicola Cionini (guitars, 2006-present), Alessandro Santoni (bass, 2007-present), and Gabriele Pozzolini (drums, 2006-present). Additional non musician stable members of the family are Giulia Altobelli (2007-present), who takes care of the videoshow and has directed The Strange Flowers videos and documentaries, sound engineer Maurizio Rosoni (1987-present), and manager Joachim Friedmann (1989-present).
The new album, entitled The Grace Of Losers, is scheduled to be released on the 15th of December 2012. The band will be on tour beginning on the 17th of December 2012. Stay Tuned! Best things are yet to come!
