Artist Biography by

Italian punk band the Skiantos formed in 1975 at the very beginnings of the punk movement. In their early days, the band had a penchant for interweaving performance art into their live shows, including an entire set where the band set up a makeshift kitchen and then cooked and ate pasta without addressing the audience once. The band broke up and re-formed several times over the years. Their 2009 album Dio Ci Deve delle Spiegazioni spent two weeks in the Italian charts, peaking at number 92.
