The Baboon is the stage alter ego of Marco Monterzino and Gabriele Maggiorotto. Gabriele lives in Turin in S. Salvario district and Marco is based in east London on a boat. Their craft is simple and somewhat enchanting, bringing together garage, pop, r&b and psychedelic references through a backdrop of adventurous narratives and storytelling. In 2010 The Baboon records a 5-track self titled EP at Outside Inside Studio (Mojomatics - Movie Star Junkies – The King Khan and BBQ Show) released on cassette tape only. In 2012 The Baboon finishes recoding the tracks for their debut album The Baboon - Gentleman, in collaboration with Edisonbox Records (IT) and Rough Trade Records (UK), a hand made/screen printed edition of 200 units. After touring extensively throughout the garage scene in Italy, UK, Switzerland and France, The Baboon are currently working on a new release.
