On the 4th of November, Maurizio Capone, along with his band, The BungtBangt, presented his new album, Mozzarella Nigga, in a Neapolitan club in Piazza Bellini. It took eight years to put together a story about nature, troubled reality, chances at redemption and, also, Neaples, with an unusual leading actor, out of the box, capable of creating impossible tools out of waste material.
Capone is a symbol of alternative music in Naples. His music is energy, is will to live. This new sound is becoming very popular. It’s a different idea of music. It comes from the street, it’s good…
And Naples, in comparison with the whole Italian situation, has got that healthy lunacy that makes it a rebel against all this general levelling.
