After the first CD "We Are No Longer the Same" (AMDISCS, 2010) under the name TABLE, it took three years for two students (Dominik Gajarský, Roman Štětina) of the Academy of Fine Arts in Prague to complete the 9-track follow up under the name Palermo. This alias links the aesthetics of the band directly to one of Joseph Beuy's students - the mythical character of painter Blinky Palermo. Three of the albums tracks are symbolically dedicated to three persons: Blinky Palermo, Jacob Lawrence and Ludwig Wittgenstein. The change in alias also comes with a new approach to production. The sound is characterized as brighter and uses a more sophisticated implementation of acoustic instrumentation(bass, guitar, percussions) as opposed to purely electronic techniques. The vocals of Dominik Gajarský reference the late 70´s and early 80´s figures of pop.
"Still Life" is available in a limited edition of 500 pieces on heavy weight 180g 12'' black vinyl.

Palermo (formerly known as TABLE) is a band formed by a couple of students at the Academy of Fine Arts in Prague. Under the
