Screaming Maldini

I don't know the ex-Azzuri and AC Milan captain personally but to me, Paolo Maldini never looked a man who would scream. He looks too much of a man. So it must be another Maldini that the new Sheffield band Screaming Maldini are referencing in their name.
Formed from members of a few other bands (Situationists to one of them), Screaming Maldini spent the summer of 08 in a studio on the outskirts of the Steel City "surrounded by nothing but horses and trees."
The result is a sound that embraces as much of today's musical scene as it does as of yonderyears. The Extraordinary begins sounding like a Burt Bacarach loose end with its sweetly blow trumpet and cheery riff. It's a lush, sweeping pop tune that captures numerous genres in perfect detail. I'm impressed with the band's ability to change sound so easily and make it seem so natural, especially the part where they go from heavy guitar riffage to floating horns and choirs seemlessly.
It's ambitious music and it's very very good.
