Loco Ironico 'Oyster Grit Salad'

Event Has Passed

Last Show: Saturday 3 rd February 2024

The Pheasantry (Chelsea)

Restart, Tune out, Drop off. 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.


"Brilliant artistry”

Claire Martin Radio 3

A recent review of their London show at Pizza Express Dean St described them as:

“Rich, alive and with roots in sounds that have been sorely missing from an homogenising landscape, Loco Ironico are the real deal.”

As Joe says:

"This is music for those with a taste for the ironic and laconic and for those who prefer whisky to tonic”

Cant see how long it can be. But.  Restart, Tune out, Drop off. is new heading!
