Is it possible for a band to sound so Italian and not-so-Italian at the same time? It might be surprising that an instrumental band like Calibro 35 has become one of the biggest Italian alternative acts in just few short years. The band, whose has been described by Rolling Stone as "the most fascinating, "retro-maniac" and genuine thing, that happened to Italy in the last years", is the proof that there's one thing that Italians do better than others... it's crime funk!

The band started back in 2007 when Grammy award candidate, producer Tommaso Colliva (Muse, Franz Ferdinand), invited some of the best musicians from the Italian indie scene - Enrico Gabrielli (Mike Patton, John Parish), Massimo Martellotta (Stewart Copeland, Adrian Younge), Luca Cavina (Retox, Zeus!), Fabio Rondanini (John Parish, Daniel Johnston) - to record some Italian golden age soundtracks. What started as a studio b-side project evolved in a full time band able to release 3 heavily acclaimed albums on cult labels such us Cinedelic and NuBlu Records NY, and to tour extensively around Europe, US and even Brazil, including to name just a few at festivals like Eurosonic in Groningen, SXSW in Austin Texas, Nova Rock Festival in Austria and CMJ in New York. The band also opened for international acts such as Muse, Sharon Jones, Afghan Whigs and Jet. Songs taken from Calibro's albums have also been included in numerous soundtracks including Hollywood blockbuster "RED" starring John Malkovich and Bruce Willis, Gli Angeli Del Male" directed by Michele Placido, "Said" directed by Joseph Lefevre and "Eurocrime" directed by Mike Malloy.
