In 2007, a quartet of Italian musicians consists of Guescio Carnarelli (voice / Farfisa organ) Walker (guitar), Guescio (bass) and Il Sindaco (drums) form the Barbacans (from Barbacan, a term which in local parlance means lazy person attitude and aggressive): then the Boss Hoss Records notices them and in 2008 produced their first single 7 "vinyl entitled Phantom Opera / What's Fantastic and its video.
A year later they recorded in Spain at the Circo Perrotti in Gijon, their first LP entitled "God Save The Fuzz" (2009 Boss Hoss Records, distributed by Godown). Three years later, after some participation in various compilations and a series of tour that saw them perform around Europe, Mexico and China supporting bands like The Morlocks and The Seeds and finally released the second official album "NO HITS FOR THE KIDS", accompanied by a change of formation (Walker left the band, replaced by Mary at the guitar).
Two years later they propose a 10 "vinyl entitled "Mai Sepoliti"with six magnificent excerpts from the famous American collection" Back From The Grave ", with lyrics in Italian and published by Boss Hoss Records, Pirata Area and Dead Music.
The Barbacans' third album, titled "A Monstrous Self-portrait", out soon on vinyl-only for Boss Hoss Records Italy, Coypu Records, and Area Pirata Records, collects songs ranging from garage, to rock and punk. Characterized by their classic Farfisa sound, it will be presented with a Mexican tour in October 2016.
God save the fuzz and The Barbacans!

THEE PSYCHEDELICATESSEN 06/10/2016

With a gigantic wave of fuzzed up guitar, wailing Farfisa organ and a cool rhythm section, The Barbacans are a Garage band........they come from Garageland........they have the spirit of The Seeds and ? & The Mysterions, the essence of Nuggets, the Psych/Punk vibe of the Damned appearing as Naz Nomad & The Nightmares and the Tone of both Flesh and Fuzz. Coming to a groovy record store near you very soon is The Barbacans' third album, titled A Monstrous Self-Portrait, it is a blast of classic and timeless Psych, Surf and Garage Rock.
As with their previous albums, Italian Garage Punks The Barbacans have a sound that has seeped through a crack in time from the suburbs of Anywheresville USA sometime around 1966........raw, psychotic and very snotty........and it's brilliant. The Barbacans are kindred spirits to the wave of 80s Post Punk Psych/Garage bands that had just stumbled across Pebbles and had their minds blown. It is obvious that they have a love for the music from the mid 60s, however they put their own spin on it and are not trying to rewrite '96 Tears'. The stand out tracks have to be the swirly tripped out 'Apocalypse Horses', the very groovy 'Next Garden', the fuzzed to max with added sax Surf Rock stomper 'Black Friday' and the berserk '4-2-BBQS'........A Monstrous Self-Portrait may be short and sweet clocking in just around the 30 minute mark but what's not to love here??? With rolling bass and fantastic drumming creating a solid foundation for spiralling organ and more fuzz than Don King's afro, if you dig Lenny Kaye's original Nuggets compilation and the other classic Garage/Psych records that followed in its wake, then you need to check this.



Bertrand Tappaz - Chronique 2016 - 01/11/2016 - VOIX DE GARAGE GRENOBLE

Ah ben voilà, du bon vieux 60's Garage Punk comme j'aime, où l'orgue se taille la part du lion. Et aussi le saxo sur un bon paquet de titres. Car les Barbacans penchent vers le versant R&B, mais pas que, avec aussi une bonne touche de Pop un peu aérienne dans leur Garage. Les compos sont très précises et follement réussies (comme c'est le cas sur les meilleurs albums de Power Pop, un genre' qui transpire ici par moment). L'interprétation reste musclée car jamais les Barbacans oublient qu'ils sont un groupe de ROCK et ce quel que soit la case dans laquelle on voudrait les faire rentrer... Si les Barbacans sont indéniablement un groupe revivaliste ils ne se donnent pas de bornes fixes et balancent des chansons euphorisantes tout au long de cet album qui me bote à fond. Sur ce 3 ème album les italiens jouent avec les références mais se situent le plus souvent un pas à côté des clichés ce qui rend le disque super intéressant même après plus de 10 écoutes. Ici tout est plus fin qu'une première impression rapide peut donner. Que ce soit la pochette, ou le son de l'orgue si on se penche vraiment sur la question alors ça vous saute aux yeux et aux oreilles!
