UNIVERSAL SEX ARENA
release debut album
'Women Will Be Girls'
out 11 February 2013 on Gran Donna
Women Will Be Girls is the debut album from Universal Sex Arena, a band from Italy blessed by the proximity to Venice.
Universal Sex Arena was born in the summer of 2009 with the precise aim of finding the missing link between Roxy Music's songwriting and Monotonix's ultimate performances. The group is the result of the encounter of six musicians coming from some of the most interesting bands of the local underground scene. A meticulous job lasted three years brought to the recording of the album and the first live appearances.
Inspirational artists for their attitude and the alchemy of energy and substance were and are Minutemen, Neil Young and Crazy Horse, The Stooges, James Brown, Jonathan Richman, Patti Smith, Glenn Gould, Chris Isaak, MC5.
Women Will Be Girls is a 15 songs, ~53 minutes voyage and has been released for the band own label/collective Gran Donna on a DIY base. The record is available as digital download, CD, limited edition 2LP. The 2LP is the result of the collaboration with the artisans of La'mas typography and the illustrator Roberta Zeta. The album has been recorded and mixed between Venice and Milan and mastered by Brian Lucey @ Magic Garden Studios (Sigur Ros, Black Keys, David Lynch, ...).
A hand-drawn animated video for the song Venice has been created by the visual artist Sara "Vlinder" Bonaventura (1077 plates!).
Universal Sex Arena has already played in major venues in Italy such as Sherwood Festival (Flaming Lips, Manu Chao, Gogol Bordello, Pat Metheny) and has been chosen as opening act for Bellrays, Happy Mondays, Barracudas. A series of concerts is planned for 2013 in Germany, Finland, Russia, UK, Belgium, starting with a live happening in Berlin @ White Trash on 5th january.
The collective is also responsible for the artistic direction of the independent festival Curtarock (Monotonix, Bob Log III, Zu, Jennifer Gentle).
