We Are Fans

Posted in Music, Rock'en channel with tags , , , , , , on January 29, 2010 by speakertv

Noi Siamo Tifosi – has been described as a 1982 VHS Italian love affair between Blondie, Sylvester, Kano, Grace Jones. The founding member, electronic DJ/Producer Harris Robotis, wanted to share his love of vintage sounds, mirror balls and anything golden. This helped form and shape the direction of what started as a solo studio project into the electrifying live disco band We:Are:Fans.

With early label interest We:Are:Fans’ debut EP in due for release early 2010, Robotis and his newly recruited band are currently busy in the studio writing and recording live handclaps, maracas and triangles for their full length disco explosion.

After only a handful of shows, this summer We:Are:Fans’ mirror ball is set to spin with the band making their debut festival appearance at Hot Barbeque in January 2010

If there is one band to watch in 2010 this is the one…
