The country rock primitive one man experiment is back on the road!
” […] At first one might be tempted to simply insert The Blues Against Youth’s sound under “roots rock,” but that doesn’t quite do it justice. Nearly, mind you, but not quite.
With a hollow-bodied electric six-string guitar, kick drum, voice, whistle, hi-hat, and an unusual piece of stomp percussion he calls his “invisible iron snare,” he has developed his sound from a slower, more organic and traditional one to what it is now — raw, gritty blues coupled with dirty, primitive rock’n’roll and outsider country.”
James G. Carlson, one man band examiner
“The Blue Against Youth’s raison d’être is to distil the essence of the past into something once more pure and while the sound might well be dirty, the concept is as pure as the driven snow all the way through these twelve bars.” Bluesbunny.com
Hailing from Rome, Italy, The Blues Against Youth is a one man band project led by Gianni TBAY who performs vocals, guitar, bassdrum, hi-hat and whistles simultaneously. His sound comes directly from the seventies, looks back at the old country tradition of Hank Williams and smirks at the sixties, moving towards some gritty rock’n’roll filled with a punk attitude.
TBAY has been rocking around since 2009, performed nearly 1000 shows in all Europe and part of the USA He released four full-length albums and five 7” up to date.
