Borghetti Bugaron Band
Led by frontman Nicola Gaggi the Borghetti Bugaron Band has been playing together since the late 1980's in various forms. They have been influenced by Italian and English rock of the 60's, 70's and 80's but started performing in their unique local Italian dialect known as "Fanese" after the new millenium. They represent an interesting fusion of Italian folk music, rock, pop, and easy listening music.

    Cute-Old-Fish
    Cute-Old-Fish was led by vocalist Terence Todaro and guitarist Alex Savelli during the heyday of the Seattle Grunge years of the early 90's when many bands were experimenting with a mixture of hard rock, funk, and rap while trying to deliver a raw but still technically captivating sound.

    Daege
    Daege was formed by Eddie Donovan and Aimone Romeo in 1990 as a prank. Anthony Collard later joined the band in 1993 for Daege's final album "El Baffo - Volume II". Almost their entire production was about "El Baffo": a somewhat devious personality based on a true story. The language is crude but serves to reinforce the absurd comicity of most of the songs that are in the form of prank phone calls, mock interviews, and Weird Al Yankovic-esque cover renditions.
    Contiene linguaggio non consigliabile ai minori di 17 anni. Album burlesco con scherzi telefonici, cover, interviste comiche, e musica originale che prende in giro un strano personaggio di nome "Baffo" basato su fatti veri.

    Eddie Donovan
    Although Eddie has been playing piano/keyboards since he was a child and guitar since he was a late teen he has few recordings. This first three pieces are simple guitar/keyboard cuts recorded in Boston in 1995. They are unstructured introspective pieces. It is typical of the type of music one improvises when playing becomes a form of relaxation and nothing more. The fourth piece was recorded in Amsterdam in 1991. It is a piano/guitar/group singing performance for a prank style cover comedy song.

    Mario Magnotta
    This is probably one of the best prank phone calls in history. During the 1980's Mario Magnotta a resident of Aquila, Italy received over a month's worth of weekly and sometimes daily prank calls. Unbeknownst to him. the prank caller was not really the principal of the company that sold him a washing machine 5 years earlier. The prank caller attempts to harass Mr. Magnotta into buying another washing machine telling him that he had signed a contract years earlier upon his last purchase binding him to do so. For over a month he tries to camly explain his side of the story and talk his way out of the ordeal. This last recorded call where he completely loses it and succumbs to less refined ways of argueing his position is by far the most comical segment of this four part series.
    Contiene linguaggio non consigliabile ai minori di 17 anni. La registrazione reperibile in basso sara' sicuramente ricordata come il piu' grande scherzo telefonico della storia. Durante gli anni 80' una persona ignota (abruzzese abitante dell'Aquila) telefono' la casa di un certo signor Mario Magnotta per circa un mese presentandosi come il proprietario della ditta che gli vendette una lavatrice molti anni nel passato. Durante le varie conversazioni, questo signore insiste che Magnotta ha firmato un contratto obbligandolo a comprare un'altra lavatrice. Magnotta ci casca e cercha di spiegare le sua versione dei fatti serenamente. Successivamente soccombe a maniere "piu forti" nell'esprimersi.
