Blonde Redhead

This trio, consisting of singer/guitarist Kazu Makino and twin brothers Amedeo and Simone Pace (singer/guitarist and drummer/programmer, respectively), got their name from a song by DNA, the early-80's No Wave band from NYC. Their beginning is one that reads like fiction: the three, gastronomes all, coincidentally meet at a New York restaurant and, over a meal, sow the seeds of a band that would go on to become one of the underground's most beloved groups.

A unique collection of multilingual heartbreakers, Blonde Redhead has worked with a wide variety of artists ranging from Guy Picciotto (Fugazi) and The Red Hot Chili Peppers to Toko Yasuda (Enon) and Vern Rumsey (Unwound). Blonde Redhead released two albums on Smells Like Records before coming to Touch and Go in 1997. During their tenure on Touch and Go, they released three full lengths, an EP and two 7” singles.
