ROUND EYE, the last band of late Stooges saxophonist Steve Mackay is touring in Europe!

Surprisingly they come from Shanghai, where they were voted for the band of the year two times in a row. Their music is so eclectic and entertaining like Mike Patton’s band Mr. Bungle, but undisputedly punk. The members are American and Italian ex-pats.

Their story has been started when Chachy replaced the American Dream with the Chinese one, and with a big leap moved from Florida to Shanghai. There he has formed his Chinese band ROUND EYE.

His American band was the Libyan Hit Squad. It also was not a simple affair, but was undisputedly punk with such influences as jazz drummer Buddy Rich, free jazz pioneer Ornette Coleman, or the hard rock band Blue Öyster Cult. But ROUND EYE adds two more shovelful of it, so their music is hardly descript, but I try: it is an amazing hardcore punk jazz ska rock and roll doo wop blues surf madhouse.

During the recordings of their first album Stooges saxplayer Steve Mackay joined, and made his final album and tour with them. He died 4 months after the album release, but you can listen to him on ROUND EYE second album Monster Vision too which released this year.

And this summer you can catch them somewhere in Europe
