Antonio Acunzo

A versatile musician, improviser and lover of all music, from Debussy to Joy Division. After a few years in Manchester, he moved to London in 2012 and became a regular of Eddie Prevost improvisation workshop. He grew up in Rome influenced by Zappa and Coltrane but it is punk that inspired him to start his first band Wild Union (1980/81) followed by Clanjark (1984/92)

After his military service, then the experimental outfit Memoria Zero, still going strong with two CD releases, Free Sdraio (2001) Between (2013). He plays drum with London based darkish esoteric band The Butterfly Wheel and co-founded the Shadow Sounds project with Tony Hardie-Bick.

Cosy Nook

(since 2016) a small cove in South London, where we occasionally come together to play, listen to and share words, sounds and other gems, polished or unpolished. (Named after a small rocky bay littered with gem stones smoothed by the fierce tidal waters of New Zealand South Island).
