Talco are a strongly anti-fascist and anti-racist combat ska-punk group that believes in the independence of music and in the message that it must send against all discrimination.

Thinking about Venice, everybody right away has a picture of the famous historical centre in mind, with its canals and beautiful old buildings. Probably nobody thinks of the districts on the mainland, mainly working class industrial neighbourhoods, that don't have much of the beauty of the city centre. One of those is Marghera, well known in Italy for one of the biggest Italian workers rebellion in newer history. That's the home of TALCO ...

Born as a ska band, over time they found a sound all their own, mixing Patchanka rhythms typical of the Mano Negra with punk and ska, sometimes dabbling in Balkan and Kletzmer, but always true to their heritage of Italian singer-songwriters, especially when it comes to the lyrics. The first years are typical for most bands, some friends play music together on a basement, till they felt its finally time for a record. Their debut “Tutti Assolti” was released in October 2004 on Kob Records/ Mad Butcher, followed by “Combat Circus” in 2006, which got really positive feedback and reviews nearly everywhere, from Italy, Germany to Spain and even in Latin America. Step by step, they get more and bigger shows, made more contacts, friends and fans and also developed as musicians, a band and individuals, which results in “Mazel Tov”, released in spring 2008.

It not only outsold their other releases in short period of time, also the shows keep growing weather its in Spain, Germany, Croatia or Italy and they are guest on numerous Festivals in Summer 2008 and 2009. Some highlights were definitely selling out legendary clubs like the SO36 in Berlin or the Indra Club in Hamburg, headlining the Stemwede Open Air in front of 7000 people.

After a fruitful collaboration with Kob Records and Mad Butcher Records for five years, the band signed in Fall 2009 with Destiny Records and re-released their last two records there. Around the same time they also released a Benefit MCD for the “St. Pauli Fanräume e.V.” including “St. Pauli”, that was written after attending a game of the famous German work class soccer club. This song also got them an invitation for the 100 year birthday festival of the club and so they play at the sold out Millerntor Stadium in May '10.

In spring '10 they also took the time to go into the studio again to record their 4th record “La Cretina Commedia”. Musically the band the band keep the powerful sound from “Mazel Tov” and that makes them special live as well, but added a lot more variety and different influences. Lyrically its a concept album about the live and work of Peppino Impastato. Born into a mafia family, he turned against his father and became an anti-mafia activist. He was killed in '78 by the mafia, during his election campaign for the Cinisi council. It took over 20 years till all offenders were sentenced and his story got known to a wider audience through the movie “I cento passi” (100 steps). (
