Banjo Or Freakout is Alessio Natalizia. He hails from Vasto, Italy but relocated to London, United Kingdom in 2008. Banjo or Freakout released 3 singles/eps in 2009 on Uk labels No Pain In Pop and Half Machine and will release his first album before the end of 2010.
The next record from Banjo or Freakout will come out on Way Slow. From Way Slow: Way Slow is a new series curated by Lefse Records and Houses. While maintaining the basic structures of a formal record label, we are embracing creativity in everything from artist sound to packaging. Each release will be a unique creation from start to finish. Many of our artists are going to be releasing material that is well outside of their normal sound, some will be collaborations, some will be from parts of the world where most of us will never see. Alongside digital downloads, we will be offering limited edition cd’s, cassettes, and even vinyl in some cases. Our physical products will be hand wrapped/sewn/carved/ individually for every release and presented as a heartwarming package of beautiful sound.
