Smoking Tomatoes
Deathtune - Original Sin



Yattafunk was born in 2014 as a side-project for every member of the band but in a short time they release their debut album “Yattafunk Sucks”, powered by Ghost Record Label and distributed by Crashsound and Code 7, thanks to the energy they spread on stage too, that brings the band on everyone’s lips. The album receives broad support from the press but the band’s strenuos live activity creates a divide between its members: drummer and bass guitarist left, then brothers Funk Norris (vocals/guitars) and Arnold Funkenegger (lead guitars) immediately search to find their substitutes. But in 2018 basically the trail goes cold, the label is obliged to use Photoshop and publish some rehearsals photos to hide the truth: Norris and Funkenegger get arrested and led to Funkatraz penitentiary where they met Funkardo DiCaprio (bass) and Funkester Stallone (drums), future members of the band. The fabolous four pull a boneheaded escape, thanks to all the yogurt’s little spoons saved, that allow them to dig a tunnel to Rome. Now they are perpetually on the run hunted by CIA, FBI, forest rangers and parking attendants and at the end of every concert they immediately get in their cars not to be arrested again.

“Yattafunk Sucks” is a new born baby, conceived thanks to the meeting of different musical genres from the biggest bands that this planet has ever seen. There’s a little bit of Deep Purple, Led Zeppelin, Infectious Grooves, Iron Maiden, Dream Theater and Grand Funk Railroad in its DNA, just to mention some of its influences. The genre proposed by the band can be defined as funk-metal, even if in every track you can identify a multiplicity of genres, sometimes even contradicting each other. Their album sounds just like a band teleported in the 70’s: no melodyne, no autotune, no triggers, no re-amp, no cutting between a note and the other, no keyboards and no fade outs. Their sound must be raw, unique, recognizable, exactly what you will listen to on stage, rough and true.
A singular unavoidable project not to not to have the same sound and the same tones typical of too many emerging bands nowadays.
Their lyrics don’t want to teach anything to anybody: they are absurd, ironic, extreme situations. They have no solutions about the problems that afflict this planet.
This is why Yattafunk Sucks!
