Album Notes
Mardi Gras hails from Rome, they stole their name from the latest Creedence Clearwater Revival, "Mardi gras " was their last studio effort. Six was a former theatre actress, while Fabrizio played in different local line ups. Being in love with Ireland and being regular visitors and in touch with the Dublin scene their first demo "The moon ep" was an irish -only release. The Irish magazine "Hot Press" reviewed it in the "Demo Dip" section hosted by Debbie Shkow. Their first release "Ballads" - a three tracks ep- was released on Mardi Gras Day 2001. In May 2001 the Drop the Debt Campaign invited Mardi Gras in the tv programme L' Elmo di Scipio (Rai 3). They were filmed while performing an acoustic live set. The duo is also interviewed about the Drop the Debt international movement and their involvement in the campaign. "Ballads" is well received by public and by the musical press. After a bunch of live gigs all over the country and their involvment with Amnesty International, who invited the duo to perform their new song "the wait"during a conference about America and the death penalty.
From January 2004 "Ballads" is even available in Dublin (Road Records and Freebird Records);
For the gig in Rome on June 9th 2004 Mardi Gras add a rhythm section to their line up :Davide Iacoangeli on double bass and Alessandro Fiori on drums;
April 2005: Mardi Gras was chosen as support act for the Frames italian tour.
"drops made" is Mardi Gras second cd, six new songs penned by Six and Fabrizio, plus an alternate version of "Conversation".

In 2006 they tour Italy, and play support for such acts as Circulus (UK), TKO (Dublin) before headin for an Irish Tour on June 2006

"Mardi Gras are doing some interesting things, and seem to have the work ethic any band needs to succed. They don’t mention any specific Irish dates, but from the sound of this demo they would be worth the bus fare into town - if not quite the plane fare to Rome."

Debbie Shkow Hot Press Dublin

"You may have caught up with Mardi Gras from Italy when they joined The Frames for the Burn the maps tour. They re a tasty acoustic act. with guitars, drums and an intriguing vocalist in Silvia Olivares. "Conversation" opens on the "Knockin on Heaven's Door" riff, with Olivares quirky pronunciation adding to its charm. It's underpinned with a cute organ, but it drags a bit. The acoustic bass is the most attractive aspect of "Untitled". "Home Again" is another introspective song that benefits from the space they give the melody, and it has a nice open country feel. Good stuff that repays a little patience"

JACKIE HAYDEN Hot Press- Dublin
