2014 release. An international collaboration recorded in Memphis and Rome, Scrapyard is a conversation between Adriano Viterbini and Reed Turchi, an exploration of styles and sounds, sparked from an impromptu performance together in November of 2013. This is the blues you do not expect. Fresh and young, these two talents create a work that is both traditional and contemporary at the same time. Adriano Viterbini, front-man of Bud Spencer Blues Explosion, and Reed Turchi (idol of the alternative country and blues scene, described in some parts as the illegitimate son of Randy Newman and JJ Cale) met for the first time in Rome, soon after finding themselves on a stage in an improvised performance together. Scrapyard collects eight songs whose sound is deliberately blues, in the hill-country and delta forms, complemented by American-primitive elements as well as a strong cinematic vision. All conceived, designed and performed with rare taste and balance. The Bud Spencer Blues Explosion in cahoots with the new idol of alternative American blues.
