"Putan Club, a duo from Italy and France are the last act of the night and HOLY SHIT do they blow the top off the Hard Club for Amplifest 2022. Playing in the middle of the room, they create an immersive and interactive experience for the crowd who grow wilder and fill the space as the bassist and guitarist seductively fill the space while weaving in and out of amplifesters, letting out tribal whoops and howls to a thumping beat lit by a sultry, hellish lighting. Self-described as ElectronicIndustrialAvantRockEthnoTechnoWorldSauvagerie and really, it makes perfect sense by the culmination of their set which has resulted in an unexpected invigorating metaphorical orgy complete with bleeding ears and shell shock which results in an immediate stampede to the merch stand... An epic ritual atmosphere, the ultimate celebration of a utopian harmony that the world has never succeeded in establishing, but which this fantastic duo seems to constantly bring together. Here, everyone danced, celebrated and experienced the wild..." ASTRAL NOIZE (UK)
A duo from Italy and France, based between Agrigento and Dakar. Voices, guitars, bass, drums & computer.
The PUTAN CLUB declines feminism, electricity, electronics & savagery - as if Skrillex violated the Birthday Party: groove and high tension. Trance, Dance and Challenge.
The PUTAN CLUB does not belong to any church (rock, techno, jazz, avant, punk, world or what-the-fuck-ever) but claims the right to be all that, even more. And proved it, from Laâyoune to Beijing. Finally, the PUTAN CLUB collaborates regularly with other demons such as Lydia Lunch, Eugene S. Robinson or Denis Lavant.
With an average of more than 180 concerts a year, over 2000 concerts since its creation, regularly on Tour in Europe, China, Turkey, Africa and Central Asia as well as part of numerous festivals as Bazant Pohoda ( SK), Tomorrow Fest (Shenzhen, RPC), Milhões ( PT), Croisements festival (Beijing, RPC), Amplifest (PT), the PUTAN CLUB is iconoclastic, violent, groovy and and resolutely feminist-revolutionary.
"...Every Putan Club gig is a kick in the face of modern music and its industry. ...They are defiant not because it’s cool to do so, but because that is what they are at their core : non-conformists... Insubordination : that is Putan Club..." MUSIC & RIOTS MAGAZINE (UK)
