The Three Blind Mice
The Three Blind Mice are an alternative italian band that was formed in Milano in 2010. Influenced by dark blues, surf music and spaghetti western, with a strong post-punk background, in the same year they released their first studio work. A black’n’roll, hard-boiled style, self-titled EP showcased in London at legendary club “Hope & Anchor”, followed by their first European tour.
In 2011 they moved to Berlin to record their first full-length album. The band choose the Schaltraum Studio at the Funkhaus, the former headquarters of the GDR’s radio, located in an industrial area by the Spree river which used to be part of East Berlin. Early Morning Scum was released In 2012. The album combines sonic explosions of spacey guitars, retro sounds and a fascination for dark Americana and Southern Gothic themes.
At the same time, singer-guitarist Manuele Scalia started to live between Milano and Berlin. He established important contacts with the local scene and began to write new songs with a different, more intimate and personal perspective.
In 2015 The Three Blind Mice returned to Schaltraum Studio in Berlin for the recording sessions of a new album. Produced by SWANS member Kristof Hahn, The Chosen One, released In 2016, shows a different side of the band, this time more focused on ballads with a dark country feel. And it sums up the band’s universe of american deserts, southern swamps, and the grey skies of Europe.
They shared stage with international artists such as The Jim Jones Revue, Lydia Lunch and Gallon Drunk’s Big Sexy Noise, Lydia Lunch Retrovirus, The Saints, Alexander Hacke and Danielle De Picciotto (Einsturzende Neubauten/Crime & The City Solution), Tex Perkins (Beasts of Bourbon), Hugo Race (ex Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds), Kid Congo Powers (ex Cramps, Gun Club, Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds), Slim Cessna’s Auto Club, Phil Shoenfelt (ex Khmer Rouge, Fatal Shore), Les Hommes Sauvages (feat.
