Tartufi is Brian Gorman and Lynne Angel. They are friends. They make explosive, scary, pretty - and sometimes ouchie - epic masterpieces. Tartufi have been around since 2001. They have a strong and loyal local following and were voted by the SF Bay Guardian as one of the best live shows.
After releasing their critically acclaimed Westward Onward EP (2004), Tartufi returned to producer and engineer Tim Green of The Fucking Champs and Nation of Ulysses at Louder Studios (The Donnas, The Melvins, Sleater-Kinner, Bratmobile) to record So We Are Alive, their highly anticipated, first full length album.
In Fall 2005, Tartufi signed on with Spanish label Acuarela Records to release an exclusive 4 song EP titled "Trouble", recorded by Phil Manley of Trans Am at Lucky Cat Studios in San Francsico.
Tartufi have toured the West Coast a number of times and embarked on a successful East Coast college and club tour last fall when the San Francisco Bay Guardian marked Tartufi as one of the top ten bands to explode into the national scene.
After a stunning and memorable showcase at SOUTH BY SOUTHWEST 2006 in Austin, Texas, Brian and Lynne locked themselves in their studio and began writing what would become the next full length album and their most important work to date.
The new album US UPON BUILDINGS UPON US has just been completed, again with the help of the ever amazing Tim Green, and will be released in October 2006. After its release the pair will hit the East Coast for another college tour and hope to schedule this around a CMJ showcase in New York City.
After this Tartufi heads off to Europe to play some shows, spend some Euros, and lick some blarneys. Mmmm. Blarney.
