Where did Italia 90 Come From? What do they want to Accomplish Next? Find Out Below!
Where did your band name come from?
We don’t have a particularly interesting story behind this unfortunately. Ages before we’d even played together we had a vague concept of a band kicking around for quite a while. We were originally going to be called The Cairo Gang, until our bass player Bobby Portrait said he thought Italia 90 had a nice ring to it. We all agreed and here we are.
What made you want to get into music?
We’ve all basically went to school together, so after 20 years we essentially ran out of things to talk about and started playing music. All our other mates were doing it too so it seemed like a good idea.
Best venue you’ve ever played and why?
Milhoes de Festa in Barcelos, Portugal. Our first international gig. Lovely place, too hot.
One band/artist you’d love to support?
Slaves – they seem to be having a tough time and need all the support they can get.
What’s the greatest love song ever written?
Nothing Compares 2 U, Prince’s love song to cigarettes
My Baby Does Good Sculptures – The Rezillos
The best album that you’ve heard this year?
What was the last song you streamed on Spotify?
Twist and Turns and Headtrips – Milk Music
Humming – Portishead
Which three artists/bands should we be looking out for? (Musically not for Criminal Offences)
Ghost Car, Great Dad and Militant Girlfriend are all absolutely excellent. And we’re not just saying that because they’re pals.
What do you want to accomplish next as a band?
Finish (start) writing the album!
