BLOODSONG OF LOVE, which was commissioned and developed by Ars Nova, official press opening of April 15th at Ars Nova (511 West 54th Street, between 10th and 11th Avenues) in Manhattan.
In a blood and whiskey-soaked world of shoot 'em ups, stolen brides and kazoo-wielding villains, a rogue musician with a killer guitar is out to set things right. Joe Iconis infuses BLOODSONG OF LOVE with his infectious musical style, making this rocked out spaghetti western the wildest funeral in town.

  1. I saw this last weekend and LOVED it! Seriously, we already have tickets for another showing. Great, catchy, memorable music, and it's really very funny while still being reverent and true to the Spaghetti Western genre. Really, I can't say enough about it.

    I actually interviewed Joe Iconis for my blog, which is in support of my Spaghetti Western Concept Rap album, called "Showdown at the BK Corral." (basically an epic Spaghetti Western over 9 tracks - very influenced by Leone and Morricone.) Check out the interview and download the album for free at I'd love to hear what you think of it!
