Interbang was named after a little-known low-budget Italian TV series, broadcast just once in Italy on Odeon TV and in the UK on The Children’s Channel in the late 1980s and then on the Terrestrial Channel ITV, then nobody knew anymore about it, so for a long time many people even doubted to have seen it, till someone started to talk again about it on the web.
The series featured two teenagers, Gianni and Bruno, who were trying to collect a number of special souvenir statues of the Pisa Leaning Tower, scattered all across the world, whilst trying to prevent a group of criminals also getting their hands on the statues. Each statue granted its holder a different magical ability. Each episode a different statue would be recovered by one of the opposing sides, with each statue displaying a different coloured version of an interrobang.
The spirit of adventure, the several settings of each episode, a genuine irony, an unassuming home-made production, not belittling at all the quality of the project; all this, together with its absolute unavailability (only the superb opening theme is available on youtube), makes of Interbang the best representation of our idea of music: adventurous, mysterious, genuine, easy, ironic, ingenious, honest, rare, precious, independent!
