Chris Catena comments: “It is a great satisfaction and an important achievement for me to be able to collaborate with a Holy Monster of Rock like Ron Nevison. Ron Nevison is a producer who has made history. I have consumed some of his records such as ‘Quadrophenia’ by The Who, ‘Lights out’ by Ufo, ‘Nightlife’ by Thin Lizzy, ‘Physical Graffiti’ by Led Zeppelin, ‘Crazy Nights’ by Kiss and ‘Out of this world’ by Europe, which are all part of my collection. Of course he wanted to listen to the song first and it was nice to get the green light from him and his compliments”.
“A Little Bitty Drunk” is an unreleased track, entirely written by Christian Francesconi Catena (aka Chris Catena) and not included on the album “Truth in Unity”, released in 2020 via Grooveyard Records. “Little Bitty Drunk” was mixed by the great RON NEVISON (THE WHO, LED ZEPPELIN, KISS, MEAT LOAF, EUROPE, THIN LIZZY, UFO, HEART, JEFFERSON STARSHIP, DAMN YANKEES, MSG, etc) and mastered by Matthew Thomson, while in pre-production it was assembled and edited by Davide Spurio, Executive Producer.
The style of “A Little Bitty Drunk” is hard rock with a country aftertaste for which Chris has put together a line-up with ALEX GIULIANI on drums, JANNE STARK, on lead guitar, ALEXANDRA MAIOLO on rhythm guitar, MARCO FIORMONTI on bass, MARCO BARTOCCIONI on slide and rhythm guitar, SARA FACCIOLO on backing vocals and acoustic guitar, VALENTINA DE IULIIS on keyboards and VERONICA INTORCIA on backing vocals.
