Steve plays feedback cello on a track from the last album by what was an interesting group, on this CD produced by Manuel Agnelli. The group no longer exists (at least for the moment). Leader and voice Emidio Clementi is making a solo record for release in 2003. Watch for Steve’s track on that one.
Steve adds vocals on Style (words by Charles Bukowski). Gak’s original arrangement of Steve’s song Green City (from the Bitter Pill album) turns out to have legs, winding up on five compilations around the world (for a total of something like 400,000 copies). See the Tangram Toursection of the Concerts-Booking pages for more info on the live progress of Gak’s music with Steve on guitar, bass and vocals.

Nice sheep on the cover.

Green City is also included in this cool US compilation, with photo of BB in a bikini inside. Right after Serge Gainsbourg and before Bebel Gilberto. Weird!

Temposphere, 2003Master DJ-composer Painè, who contributed the track Jungle to the Bitter Pill CD, invites Steve for the vocals and tune of the title track of this new CD. The record is full of great ideas and Spontaneous will be one of the singles. Elsewhere on the record Steve adds some bass lines.
Homesleep Records 2004
Che ci crediate o no, Emidio Clementi ed i suoi compagni d’avventura hanno finalmente terminato il loro primo lavoro. Titolo dell’album “Stanza 218”. Oltre ai fondatori della band, Emidio Clementi, Massimo Carozzi, numerosi i musicisti che hanno collaborato: Dario Parisini, Giacomo Fiorenza (homesleep/mirabilia), Paolo Cucco (mau mau), Vittoria Burattini (massimo volume), Steve Piccolo, Luca Gemma, Francesco Donadello (gdm), Paul Shilton (quickspace), Mauro Rigoni (personaggio dei romanzi di Clementi…). 10 Brani fantastici caratterizzati dal recitato di Emidio Clementi e dalle atmosfere elettroniche, oniriche e malate di Massimo Carozzi. Un album che, ne siamo certi, lascerà il segno nella storia della musica italiana…
BTW – sounds good live too!
Luca Gemma – Saluti da Venus
