Quintet from Bologna formed in 2018 whose name is inspired by the iconic single “Warm Leatherette”, by The Normal. “Leatherette” sounded like a mockery of rock music and the cult of rock stars: “fake” leather as a device for self-irony, something cheap, punk, shameful. Initially the band was a trio, formed by Michele Battaglioli (aka Dolan Tymas – guitarist and singer), Francesco Bonora (Baseball Gregg, Sleap-e – drums) and Marco Jespersen (bass). In the same year the release of the first self-produced demo No Way and in 2019 the band expands, with the arrival of Jacopo Finelli (sax, synthesizers) and Andrea Gerardi (guitar). Their sound has evolved and enriched, combining jazz atmospheres, punk explosions and no wave suggestions. In 2021 she joined the We Were Never Being Boring roster and released “Mixed Waste”, their debut EP.
