Steeplejack was formed in 1986 by Maurizio Curadi, after playing guitar singing and writing songs in seminal acid rock italian bands such as Useless Boys and Birdmen of Alkatraz. Steeplejack
has always been a strange anomaly in the Italian scene: visionary
rather than psychedelic in the usual sense, the band has always
followed an independent path with unusual spirits and sounds, mixing
primitive delta blues with eerie songs. They recorded 2 LP's ("Serena Maboose" in 1987, and "Pow Wow"
in 1989 for Electric Eye Records) and 2 singles in 1991. After years of
apparent inactivity, they reformed in 2000. At present they're
recording new material for a new cd, "Nameless City".
