ITALO ITALIANS – The Scandal, Intrigue and Drama!

In Part 2 of their wonderful saga serials, Another Island have taken some more time out to send us the story of Righeira.

Witness another great saga of Italo pop history:

Righeira – the agony and the ecstasy 

Probably one of the most famous Italian bands of the 80’s, Righeira were singing in their golden age “No Tengo Dinero”. I have no money 

At the end of the 80’s when the buzz had gone, and the cash had really dried up Stefano Righi got involved with an ecstasy smuggling ring bringing very strong tablets from Amsterdam through France and into the clubs of major cities like Rome, Milan and of course the disco coast of Rimini the gang was arrested in a sting operation involving a mini skirted undercover lady cop and found with over 40 000 pills – stung by the honey trap!

If you want to hear what italian dance music sounds like today pop on down to the sebright 26th nov for Another Island with DJ Rocca ( Ajello / Gomma ) and FabMayDay ( Italo Italians ) and Campari Safari DJS For more info on the rather wonderful looking Another Island night itself click the ticket link below:
