Tartufi is Brian Gorman and Lynne Angel. They are friends. They make explosive, scary, pretty - and sometimes ouchie - epic masterpieces. Tartufi have been around since 2001. They have a strong and loyal local following and were voted by the SF Bay Guardian as one of the best live shows.

After releasing their critically acclaimed Westward Onward EP (2004), Tartufi returned to producer and engineer Tim Green (of The Fucking Champs and Nation of Ulysses) at Louder Studios (The Donnas, The Melvins, Sleater-Kinner, Bratmobile) to record So We Are Alive, their highly anticipated, first full length album.

In Fall 2005, Tartufi signed on with Spanish label Acuarela Records to release an exclusive 4 song EP titled "Trouble", recorded by Phil Manley (of Trans Am) at Lucky Cat Studios in San Francsico.

The album US UPON BUILDINGS UPON US was completed, again with the help of the ever amazing Tim Green, and was released in October 2006.

After this album, Tartufi released a full-length album and an EP on Southern Records of London England, in 2009 and 2010 respectively.

For years Southern operated as a recording studio & the biz wheels behind labels like Crass, Corpus Christi, Bluurg & Dischord, before launching an eponymous imprint in 1991 ... more
