bob corn .
live in a little village in northern italyís countryside , where i was
born on november the fifth ninteensixtyeight and where i passed all my life
itís more than ten years than i am involved in the rock music scene, doing different
and festivals, booking tours, driving bands around, running a little label.
trying to do these things in a real d.i.y way...
music and people
in the first row... on this website
you can find what i-we are doing and
part of what i-we did in the past..
. after some personal things happened, i started to make my own music,
writing songs and performing shows, calling my self "bob corn".
it was the end of twothousandone... it was something that i had to do.
. it was even a
joke. a serious joke..
. now itís me :
i play simple
music lines with an acoustic guitar and sing words about people and love...
i like to call my
music "sad punk"... in these years i put out five records of my
played many many gigs all around italy
and out of this country, sharing the stage with unknown bands as
i am or with my favourite artists (mike watt, dinosaur jr, calvin johnson, explosions in
the sky, karate, bonnie "prince" billy, sodastream, xiu-xiu, sj
esau... many more... yes, i am lucky !).
and... iíd like
to do it again and again..
. i mean other
songs, other records, other shows, other people... so...
please, get in
touch if you are interested in doing something with me or knowing something
- SOMEONE SAID...
- Mike Watt: the
man in the van with the bass in his hand, bass player in the bands
minutemen / firehose / the stooges. On his web site, about a show i
played before "mike watt and the secondmen" at the theatre
in gradara - www.mikewatt.com
"... a great cat named tiziano (stage name: "bob corn")
opens up the show on solo acoustic guitar and singing - he does some
beautiful tunes that are very soulful, dancing skips w/his feet (even
though he's sitting) to accompany him..."
remember this in my mind, after a show i played at "ausland"
in Berlin ..
miss .. maybe 50, 100, 1000, 10000, 10000000, yes
you miss a lot of whiskeis then you Ďll be like
johnny cash! "
