Blondie Fox biography
Italian act BLONDIE FOX was the creative outlet of vocalist Mirko DeFox Galliazzo and multi-instrumentalist Paul Blondie Gidoni. This duo had first and foremost been active in the metal scene, but from the early 90's and onwards their writing exceedingly sought out stylistic expressions less tied down to a particular musical style, ultimatley leading to the formation of the Blondie Fox project.

They recorded their debut album "Agua" in 1996, subsequently issued by Italian label Mellow Records in 1997. A second album was recorded in 1998, but was never released. The same year they contributed a track to the compilation Zarathustra's Revenge. It is thought that the band disbanded shortly after this.

2 stars A discovery of Mauro Moroni and Mellow Records, Blondie Fox was a 90's Italian duo, formed around singer Mirko "DeFox" Galliazzo and multi-instrumentalist Paul "Blondie" Gidoni, who both had a metal background, having played with the Metal group X-Hero.With Blondie Fox they were trying to break into new, more experimental grounds and their first recordings were associated by Nuvole di Paglia's Franco Serena and producer Aldo Menti at his studio in Valdagno.Their debut ''Aqua'' came out in 1996.

Now this is an album prooving that not anyone can play decent Prog/Art Rock.Apparently the Italians were a bit stuck in their past and the combination of new and old stylings sounds pretty directionless, unfocused and often hillarious.With an annoying drum machine and Galliazzo's high-pitched voice not suiting well with the style, Blondie Fox experimented with atmospheric soundscapes surrounded by hard-rockin' guitars and background synthesizers in a work that struggles to find a particular path to be built upon.So ''Agua'' contains echoes of acts such as ASGARD, BLACK JESTER, GARDEN WALL and the likes and add some Glam Metal/Hard Rock in the mix along with some bizarre distortions/effects, which seem to lead nowhere.Short keyboard instrumentals are followed by pompous Hard Prog with a crying voice and some nice guitar soloing but no more than that.This ends up to be totally incosistent with the changing climates hurting the album as a whole.Lack of decent instrumental moves or trully memorable material are negative factors as well.Moreover ''Agua'' lasts shorter than half an hour, which is pretty embarassing.

Reputedly the duo revisited Menti's White Studio for the recordings of a second album, which was said to be more interesting, but this one was never published.The only other document by Blondie Fox before their demise is the participation on Mellow Records' tribute album ''Zarathustra's revenge'', covering Il Balletto di Bronzo's ''Neve calda''.

''Agua'' is of less interest among prog fans.A mix of keyboard orchestrations, Hard Rock and lyrical Metal with no coherence, held down also by a mediocre recording process and sound quality.Not among a music fan's priorities.

3 stars Despite the name, this album is not the offspring of Deborah Harry and Samantha Fox. It's actually singer Mirko DeFox Galliazzo and multi-instrumentalist Paul Blondie Gidoni. The music, while mostly falling into the arena rock genre, is surprisingly endearing.

As I stated, the songs are very much arena-like in sound. Galliazzo's screeching voice reminds me of many 80's hair bands. It's Gidoni's instrumentation and songwriting that helps this album transcend the genre. The guitar solos are not spectacular, but always tasteful. And the keyboards are never overbearing, yet they provide a complexity that gives the album enough prog creds to gain them access to this site.

the album is very short, but it packs a wallop.

Thanks to windhawk for the artist addition.
