Next Pop is the first document of a journey still in progress, a record born on the tracks of factories, call centers, tomato fields, the real experience of a research project and artistic testimony in the world of those who work: it is an itinerant event on the edge of the old Fiat 615 truck of 1956 - always emblematic of the group - in places where the dignity of workers was violated and redeemed and which has so far touched the gates of the Fiat Sata of Melfi, Liri, the steel mills of Terni, the camps of Borgo Libertà, the Atesia of Rome, the railway of Allumiere and is already on the traces of the arms factories of Colleferro, the Italcementi of Trento, the port of Genoa and who knows how many other still stories.
Fourteen tracks, a repertoire of original arrangements made up of interpretations - choices and tracked thanks to the collaboration and the precious advice of Gianni Mura - and from unpublished pieces signed by Têtes de Bois, the album collects concrete experience, themes and some of the many guests who accompanied the band on Avanti Pop's journey. Têtes has always been an indispensable story of friends, meetings, exchanges, travel companions.
It ranges from "The lever" by Paolo Pietrangeli to "The Building" of Chico Buarque de Hollanda, by Matteo Salvatore al Zecchino d'Oro ("Quarantaquattro cats" is not perhaps a song of protest? ), passing by a classic of Piero Ciampi and a less classic by Giorgio Gaber and again Rocco Scotellaro, a poet sparkle singer of the peasant miseries of his land and Salvatore Poddighe, poet miner in the eighth rhino Sardinian, suicidal death in 1938, music by the sextet. But there is also the title track, Avanti Pop, the original song of the group, a contemporary hymn to sing (and even dance), inventions, surprises, and more.
A flow of images, collected and summarized in the booklet by the graphic instinct of Marta Dal Prato, music and thoughts in perfect style Têtes de Bois - a few seconds less than an hour - enriched by the contributions of Monica Demuru, Gianni Mura, Petra Magoni and Ferruccio Spinetti, Paolo Rossi, Giants and the Lucani Choir (Rocco De Rosa, Rocco Papaleo, Claudio Santamaria, Ulderico Pesce, Canio Loguercio). Next Pop!
The debut dates back to February 15, 1992, in Campo de 'Fiori square in Rome, under the statue of Giordano Bruno, with a concert on an old Fiat 615 NI pickup truck of 1956, bought by a wardrobe and became a stage, with songs of Ferré and Brassens, Baudelaire's poems.
In 1994 the first self-produced CD was released And even if it was not love, I work essentially on interpretations of famous French songwriters. In 1997 Emi public music Spare parts, the first record of original songs signed by the group.
'97 is also the year of the prestigious edition of Stradarolo, an international art road festival - destined to last for a decade, school and generating imitations and epigones, including "white nights" - as well as the project "Under the sky of Rome and Berlin ", in collaboration with the Stalker Group, at the metro stations of Rome and Berlin at peak hours.
Between 2000 and 2002, Têtes de Bois headed to the residence of Tuscania Theater. Experience will give life among other things to the events of the Iron River, itineraries of shows, installations and poetry between tracks and galleries of an abandoned railway, from sunset to dawn. In Paris, on June 21, 2000, at the European Music Festival, they held concerts for a whole day in the elevators of the Ministry of Finance Palace.

In 2005, the Têtes de Bois engaged in the idea of the commemorative "On the crossroads", between the train and the station of Frascati and the start of the "Avanti pop" project devoted to a world of work that, in that historical moment, just seemed a forgotten topic.
In 2007, the fifth album release for the Avanti pop release, CD, was born on a 20-stage tour in the symbols of work in Italy. For this work they have been recognized as the Tenco Prize, as best performers in 2007; the PIMI Prize, 2007 Best Independent Label Meeting, and the Matteo Salvatore Prize in 2008.

In 2011 I am the resident band of the Fratelli e sorelle di trasmissione televisiva di Italia conducted by Veronica Pivetti on La7. 2011 is a year of mobilizations in the world of culture and the Tetes de Bois support with a series of concerts the protest of the busy Dance Theater and the Palace Cinema (which will host the preview of the pedal stage) and adhere to the open network Culture Well Comune . But 2011 is mainly the year of the Pedal Stage, the first ever eco-live performance concert in the world (audio, light and video) from the energy produced by the bicycle audience. The show debuts first in Bari and is subsequently replicated throughout Italy.
