Crucchi Gang

Music / Indie / Germany

In Italian, Germans are derisively called “Crucchi”, which in the singular can also mean “limited” or “pigheaded”. It is no coincidence that Francesco Wilking, better known as a member of Die Höchste Eisenbahn, chose this name for his new band project. Together with Sven Regener (Element Of Crime), Matthias Rode (Von Wegen Lisbeth) and Tobias Bamborschke (Isolation Berlin), the experienced songwriter now does a turn crooning songs from all kinds of artists in Italian, in an attempt to firstly dispel the negative connotation of the band’s name and secondly to promote a little transcultural bridge-building. “The band is like an Italian holiday for me,” says Regener. The translation gives many of the guys’ well-known songs not only a different linguistic touch, but also a new musical sound. They will be presenting selections from their self-titled debut from last year as well as new material, of course with a lot of amore and passione.
