A combo made up of two mentally deviated italians.
Francesco Zedde (aka Tonto and Tacet Tacet Tacet) and Paolo Gàiba Riva (aka PGR).
their sound combine both the digital big, heavy and sometimes uncontrollable sound of a home made circuit bended no input device and the dynamic and rawer one of contact mic-ing his own arse and other more or less clear places.
