Gianfranco Caliendo and Gianni Averardi musically reunited after 42 years and recorded a new album: Liverpoolcinella. In the seventies, they founded a popular Italian pop band, Il Giardino dei Semplici, which sold 4 million records in Italy and outside. Gianfranco is also the composer of the international hit Turuturu, which sold 1.200.000 copies in the world.
Their first single as Founders Reunion is Pecché (Why), a Neapolitan version of the Beatles' classic song Get Back, originally issued in 1969. The Neapolitan lyrics expose many negative aspects of the Italian metropolis and the will of common people to fight against those issues.
The Averardi-Caliendo duo can count on its unique voices, Gianfranco's folk guitars/arrangements and Christian Brucale's tammorra, to paint a fresco in which the Lennon-McCartney melodies acquire the Neapolitan folk taste and street language, as well as the power of that vivid and brilliant city.
Some other songs from the track-list: "Nennella" (Girl); "Stammatina" (Something); "Vide 'a Madonna" (Lady Madonna); "Jamme pigliammo 'o ccafè" (With a little help from my friends); "Comme allora" (All my loving).
The official videoclip has been shot at 4K by Michele De Angelis for Midea Video and filmed in the Museum of Pulcinella located in Aversa.
