“…a stomping authentically-rendered adolescent fantasia of fun…” Q ****
“From Roma, neo-bovver rockers get stomping. Recalling the stack-heeled sounds of Slade, The Sweet and The Faces plus the “junk shop glam”, Romans Giuda do their bit for similarly no pretention, high energy rocking” Mojo
“Italian quintet Giuda are the greatest ‘70s glam-rock band to have existed since… the 1970s.” NME 8/10
“Guida perfectly channel a stomping pre-punk past complete with hand claps, terrace-boy chants and pop chops to match…” Vice 10/10
“Guida encompass the glam gamut – referencing perfectly rendered period elements, from quirky synth lines to camp vocal asides.” Vive Le Rock 10/10
“This is the perfect sound for life on the terraces, in the discos, at a gig, at the pub and in the streets, always with Giuda blasting in your ears” Rolling Stone
“When I heard Racey Roller I was pissing my pants laughing, because it’s so brilliant, so exhilarating and fun” Def Leppard’s Joe Elliott (Classic Rock Magazine)
“They’ve ram-raided the vaults of 70′s glam, punk and rock ‘n’ roll to make a foot-stomping, fist pumping riot of sound that has the scenesters, the punks and rockers and young and old in attendance going nuts! Giuda are the best band we’ve seen in years!” Vive Le Rock
Giuda (pronounced JEW-DA) are an Italian five-piece band from Rome, born from the ashes of one of the finest European punk rock groups, Taxi. They play the most exciting kind of retro-sounding pub rock and junk shop glam and they have the look of true working class heroes (boots, polos, chequered shirts, leather jackets and short or shaved hair).
Giuda will be releasing a limited edition 7” single of ‘Yellow Dash’ taken from their second album Lets[pullquote_left][/pullquote_left] Do It Again on 19th May. The b-side is an exclusive track entitled ‘Kukulcan’. The Damaged Goods version of this 7” is on yellow vinyl and and limited to 1000 copies only.
Their first album, Racey Roller which was described by Robin Wills (The Barracudas) as “Cock Sparrer twinned with the Equals”, became an underground sensation and praised by publications as diverse as Mojo, Rolling Stone and Maximum Rock’n’Roll.
Their second album, Let’s Do It Again is out now on Damaged Goods.
Giuda will be playing at the London Barfly on 4th June 2014.
