BUY INVISIBLE SONGS.
The Precious Prize of Gravity by Bellini on the iTunes.
Small Stones by Bellini on the iTunes.
Snowing Sun by Bellini on the iTunes.

It says on the iTunes that our contemporaries are the Minutemen (awesome), that people who bought Small Stones also purchased Journey: Greatest Hits by Journey (probably Scott Giampino) and that are not enough ratings to display an average for these albums. Friends, please remedy this.


03.20.10
TWEET, TWEET LIKE SOME KIND OF A HUGE BIRD MADE FROM FIRE.
Follow us on the twitter. Musings of a band, gems from the van, welcomes from emails, spreading out to you like a huge, overflowing table-full of pizzas, pastas, paninis. Abonadanza!!

A FEW CHANGES

Have just been made to the website. I cleaned it up a bit. Enjoy! Eventually, we will get some images up from the Japanese tour as well as past tours. We will rededicate some time to this site as it is sorely needed.


05.08.06
NEXT BELLINI MOVEMENTS

Japan was an incredible experience for all of us. We had the honor to play with so many great bands: Fort Wayne, Hyakkei, John Juhl's Cornfield, Midoriyama, Mono, the Shipping News, and World's End Girlfriend. It was a rejuvenation. The cherry blossoms were in full bloom, the audiences were amazing, and many new friends were made. Thanks to everyone at Human Highway Records. We already miss you Japan.

Agostino proudly played his new guitar given to him by Kevin at Electrical Guitar Company during the US Small Stones tour.

So what is next for Bellini?
Many ideas have been shot around. Maybe some shows? Maybe a tour? Not sure. We do know that we will be meeting sometime this year to work on new material and record our third album.

Girls Against Boys and Uzeda will be performing at the Touch and Go Records 25th Anniversary Block Party in September, so there is a slim chance for a Bellini show or two in the Midwest/Chicago Area.

And lastly, whoever put us up on Wikipedia, you're a weirdo, thanks.

When you have your tonsils removed as an adult, it hurts a lot.

The recording was incredibly fun and the mixing is currently underway at Electrical. We made out with 11 songs and played a show in Austin at Emo's. It was a great seeing each other.

Ciao Ciccis. Sorry so slow on the updates. Okay? Okay. Here's what's up: We meet in Austin in April to write and record our second record. We're in the process of choosing a studio.
