PREMIERE: More Firepower From Elizabeth The Second With ‘Gimme One Euro’

Rock power trio Elizabeth The Second present ‘Gimme One Euro’, the second track to be revealed from their forthcoming debut album ‘Two Margaritas at the Fifty Five’. This follows the release of the video for the first single ‘No One Cares’. Elizabeth The Second are Ben Moro (guitar and vocals), Michele Venturini (bass guitar) and Luca Gallato (drums). Their music is influenced by The Clash, Blur, The Libertines, Artic Monkeys, Nirvana and The Stone Roses.

Full of swagger and spunk – a rhythmically pounding piece with a vintage atmosphere that gets your blood pumping about what comes next – the perfect soundtrack for a night out on the town or an adrenaline-filled drive. Sonically, this music blends classic garage rock with punk and grunge accents. Frontman Ben Moro takes his vice to the boiling point, wavering between delicate parts and biting screams.



Formed in mid-2018 in Padova, northern Italy, this trio was born of shared excitement over music and its creation. The desire to return to play together between Ben and Michele old friends, were interested in playing together again after a significant gap, but it wasn’t until they met up with Luca that they found the magic formula for the band’s genesis.

The ‘Two Margaritas at The Fifty Five’ EP is a journey through impulsive sounds, seasoned with a captivating melodic compartment. It was recorded at the Hypnoise Recording Studio under the careful supervision of sound engineer Filippo Galvanelli and mastered by Giovanni Versari at La Maestà Mastering Studio (Muse, Afterhours, Verdena, Calibro 35, Nic Cester). 

This EP references everything that has been essential and musically formative for the trio – strong influences from the 90s and 2000s mesh tastefully with sounds borrowed from The Stone Roses and The Clash. Here, punk, grunge, indie rock and Britpop blend together under the clear influence of classic UK rock. The guitars are raw, well marked by the amps’ saturated and incandescent tubes, amalgamated by a pressing rhythmic compartment, sometimes on the frontiers of dance. The lyrics are inspired by the band’s daily experiences and the most impulsive and hidden outbursts, transformed into a stream of consciousness.

‘No One Cares’ is now available across online stores and streaming platforms. The full album ‘Two Margaritas at the Fifty Five’ will be released on November 9, well timed with their London gig at The Unicorn Camden Live that very evening for Punk’n’Roll Rendez-Vous.

Hey people I'm Mike D from Athens GR (43). I'm a sound engineer, radio producer, and certainly a music "freak." I couldn't be anything else, you see: I grew up in a musical home (my father was a composer), and wanted to be a rock-star but wasn't patient enough to study music. Instead, I studied the technical stuff and went really "nuts" when I started writing articles about the bands and artists I love. It all started back in 2002 in a printed magazine (Sound Maker - RIP) and I still do it because I really like sharing my libraries, discotheque, info, connections, knowledge, and all. I'm involved in all "waves" music (new wave/darkwave/post-punk/shoegaze), punk, industrial, EBM, alternative rock, indie, electronic, avant-garde/ experimental/ freestyle...but on the other hand I can easily throw a classical CD in the player, or a jazzy tune, or...ok you get it: Music! I'd like to read your comments on my writing because you know how it goes, and you all know the glorious song by Placebo,"Without You I'm Nothing"...Thanx and enjoy Freedom and Music, Loud!
