Alessandro Ansani – bass player for The Liars – and the man who organized the whole Italian Tour for Firehouse’s Psychedelic Secession Tour – met us in Florence – his home town (He was born in Pisa, and loves to show us around there, and lives in Florence). The night was a book release for “Eighties Colours” by Roberto Calabro. The book covers the Italian psychedelic garage scene of the 1980’s. It’s a masterful acheivement – and exhaustively documents the whole period.
Alessandro’s band, The Liars, played live and rocked the house down.
Roberto and Alessandro presented the book. I even added a few words about the San Francisco poster scene, boiling down the last 50 years into an easily understandable storyline.
Our hosts at Cuculia were so kind as to invite Firehouse to show our posters until the end of the month.
