“…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

“the hooks are relentless, the playing unfussily skilful and the charm unfailing.”  The Guardian ****

“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

“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

“This is irresistible stuff that demands to be listened to while twerking in the 70s style… This was so nearly a 10/10 but we docked a point due to the surprise absence of a butterfingered Chicory Tip-style keyboard solo.”  Classic Rock 9/10

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 rock’n’roll and junk shop glam. Their look of true working class heroes gained a touch of glam-kinda style over the years, better reflecting the rich patchwork of their music.

After their sell-out show at the Lexington in December, Giuda are back for more shows and more stomping ’70s glam and punk rock – dates below.

Giuda released their debut album Racey Roller in 2010 followed by Let’s Do It Again in 2013, the band recently released their third album, Speaks Evil in December 2015 on Burning Heart Records.  Their mix of anthemic ‘70s glam hooks and the punchy delivery of early UK punk has grown up into something that is just rock’n’roll, straight and sharp as Giuda can be.

Although the band openly admit their influences, including early 70’s rock giants like Slade, The Sweet and T-Rex, as well as semi-obscure junkshop glam acts like Hector and Jook, Slaughter And The Dogs and Eddie and The Hot Rods, the Rome-based quintet have managed to create a truly original sound, making them one of the most happening bands on the international rock’n’roll scene.

The five-piece, Lorenzo Moretti (guitar/vocals), Ntendarere Damas (lead vocals), Michele Malagnini (guitar), Danilo Valerii (bass) and Daniele Tarea (drums), fully embody the original rock’n’roll principle: that of having fun!
