Gothic Lunch biography
Italian band GOTHIC LUNCH is one of the lesser known bands in the annals of Italian rock music. Consisting of Tony D'Urso (vocals, guitars), Lino Fiorentino (vocals, keyboards, guitars), Alberto Fiorentino (bass) and Sandro Immacolato (drums), they released one self-titled album in 1992 and then disappeared out of sight, leaving few other traces of their existence.

3 stars Disclaimer: I was the lone dissenting voice when this band was voted in to the Prog Archives by the Crossover team.

I still don't hear enough prog in their music. But I like the album.

To me, this Italian band sounds like a blend of the southern rock of The Allman Brothers Band, and the psychedelic jams of Traffic and The Grateful Dead. While I like quite a bit of the music by all three of those bands, I just find very little prog on this album.

The album begins with an eleven minute jam in 6/8 that sounds just like classic Allmans. It rocks hard, and to me is the best song on the album. I Would Play in an Old Theatre sounds more like Traffic, and it is the first vocal track on the album. It appears that whoever translated the lyrics into English did not have a firm grasp on the language. But that feature actually adds some charm to the album.

The only piece that sounds at all like prog to me is the closer, Silvia Goes to Edinburgh. It is a multi themed piece that only qualifies due to the different qualities of each movement. Otherwise each section sounds like Grateful Dead jams.

It's actually a pleasant album. Just not very progressive.

Thanks to windhawk for the artist addition.
