Her favourite bands are: Can, Neu!, Hawkwind, and Acid Mothers Temple.
Berto is a music lover of many years, he’s also the bass player with Electric Cake Salad. He describes himself as being a “sonic noodler and songwriter at my own musical projects”. He also almost achieved his Duke of Edinburgh award, but stopped half way through due to lack of interest! Berto’s favourite bands are: Neu!, Black Sabbath, Hawkwind, and Stereolab.
So welcome to Roo and Berto’s ‘Freakroom’, where you’ll hear everything from psychedelia, psych rock and garage through to dub and doom and weirdness. In their own words “Just as we do at home, we’ll be playing you the music that we love and probably talking bollox”. You have to love that kind of honesty! Roo and Berto are sonic guerrillas at the very frontline of strangitude here at Voodoo Radio!
