From the decadence of Rome to Manchester’s city suburbs and back, it’s tough to keep up with musical bard Milo Scaglioni. Milo Scaglioni’s debut album “is most like the rain-splattered Mancunian melancholy of the song-writer’s early years The Beep Seals touching as it does on the introspective of Elliott Smith and the British pastoral pop of the late ‘60s and early ‘70s. The album is full of gentle, laconic tunes that anyone will whole heartly enjoy. The Fender Rhodes-dappled closer, Enough is not Enough hints at great things”. Shindig Magazine
“A Simple Present combines the bucolic temperament of Ellioth Smith, Ray Davies, Ronnie Lane etc. with acoustic arrangements, kind-hearted sentiment and folish tunes”. 4 out of 5 stars!
As bass player in The Beep Seals and with fellow pop procrastinator Jim Noir, he later become a member of Italian psych band Jennifer Gentle who were signed to Sub Pop, currently plays with Rome based droners Sonic Jesus and also regularly backs one of Italy’s biggest musicians, Roberto Dellera (Afterours). Travelling wilburys to assist in creating the record’s insatiable atmosphere include also PJ Harvey collaborator Enrico Gabrielli (Winstons, Afterours, Calibro 35). For fans of Brit Folk, late Sixties Pop-syke, Kinks, Love, Leonard Cohen, Gruff Rhys.
