Phono Emergency Tool
Rock band from Bologna, IT
The name “phono emergency tool” appears for the first time on ‘Soniche Avventure VIII’ , a CD compilation by Fridge Records (2003) through “I’d rather be a mosquito”, a song extracted from Andrea Sgarzi’s home recording.
At Villa Serena, a rock club in Bologna (Italy), PET becomes a band with Andrea Sgarzi on guitar and vocal, Sandro Sgarzi on bass and vocal and Marco Lama on drums.
Previous experiences (slang, mud bubble, buzzer, banana boys, geremia rock band, twilight, del nastro), also in different dresses (they’re all guitar, bass and drums players) make the new line up a real solid band in a short time. The set list includes Andrea’s songs and Sandro’s songs and also some classic covers. So Phono Emergency Tool creates a “PET Sound” that includes pop-rock contaminated of blues, psyche and indie-rock.
In November 2011 PET have the first british experience playing in London at the Dublin Castle (Camden Town) .
In February 2012 they go again to London and play at Motherlive and at Cavendish Arms getting a good feedback.
After 2 album unsigned in 2013 they sign for Red Cat, a label by Florence (Italy) for the release of the third album “Get the Pet”.
