The Winstons – Diprotodon
ITALIAN PROGRESSIVE/PSYCHEDELIC/JAZZ BAND
The Winstons’ are a 100% Italian trio despite their name and the kind of music here proposed. Their genre in itself is hard to classify, but that definitely has its reference point the in the Canterbury progressive rock scene and in artists such as Soft Machine, Gong, Caravan, Henry Cow, Kevin Ayers and so on.
The Winstons are characters of the Italian indie-rock panorama; their Lino Gitto, Roberto Dell’Era, (Afterhours), and Enrico Gabrielli (Calibro 35, Mariposa). The surreal album cover is made by Japanese artist Gun Kawamura, who also wrote the lyrics of two songs on the album (“Diprotodon” and “Number Number”), sung in Japanese by Gabrielli and Dell’Era”!
