Loco Ironico 'Oyster Grit Salad'

Event Has Passed

Last Show: Sunday 8 th January 2023

PizzaExpress Jazz Club (Soho)

Loco Ironico is the brainchild of British singer-songwriter Joe Cang and Italian musician and composer Matteo Saggese. Songs of GMO crops, shipwreck and elusive future physical fitness that draw on New Orleans jazz, Cuban tango and Caribbean calypso. Think Dr John,Tom Waits, Randy Newman and Buena Vista. Playing songs from critically acclaimed Carpe Afternoon and Mambo Gumbo albums and also some favourites from their new ep The Covers mixing sounds, styles and songs together into a slow-cooked sonic stew for your musical nourishment. As Joe says : ‘This is music for those with a taste for the ironic and laconic and for those who prefer whisky to tonic”.

"Brilliant artistry”

Claire Martin Radio 3

Chris Evans: ‘New music that sounds like old music!”

Evening Standard: ‘Lyrical and musical upliftment from some of Londons great singers and songwriters’
