The Moon: Good and Evil

Read "Good and Evil" reviewed by Vincenzo Roggero

Chilometri e chilometri macinati in auto tra Canada, Midwest, East Coast, esibizioni in location le più disparate tra centri d'arte e bar sportivi, oltre che un'affinità elettiva scattata al primo incontro, sono i presupposti che hanno portato Adam Caine, chitarrista di Rochester, NY, e Federico Ughi, batterista romano, dal 2000 residente a Brooklyn, a incidere Good ...
