: Julie's Haircut lyrics
Active since the late 90s, Julie’s Haircut is a collective from northern Italy. Their debut album “Fever in the funk house” (Gammapop, 1999), a strange mixture of garage rock, noisy psychedelia and pop melodies was hailed at by the Italian critics as one of the best debuts in Italian indie rock. The follow-up “Stars never looked so bright” (Gammapop, 2001) mixed these elements with a more soulful approach, mirroring the love for 60’s black music nurtured by the band.
In 2003, after switching to Homesleep Records Julie’s Haircut released their third album “Adult situations”, the first to be internationally distributed. Here, melody and odd psychedelia mingle in a more personal way.
By 2005 the music of Julie’s Haircut has moved forward towards more experimental grounds, focusing on improv and sound research, without losing touch with the groove that characterized their music since day one.
The result was their fourth album “After dark, my sweet” (Homesleep, 2006), featuring former Spacemen 3 Sonic Boom, acclaimed as one of the best alternative Italian albums of the year.
The following tour took the band all over Italy and Europe and they featured as part of the cast of International festivals such as Eurosonic (Netherlands), Traffic (Italy) and Arezzo Wave (Italy).
In 2006 they also functioned as “sound carriers” for an Italian performance of former Can singer Damo Suzuki, thus entering the Damo Suzuki Network and consolidating a warm musical and human relationship with the japanese/german artist that lead to further collaborations in the following years.
In 2008, following the release of “N-waves / U-waves”, a 10” ep collecting unreleased studio improvisations of the band with Sonic Boom, Julie’s Haircut embarked on a italian double-bill tour with Spectrum (Sonic Boom’s solo project).
