Tritons

Profile:
Another mysterious chapter in the long New Trolls saga, Tritons were an offshoot of Ibis, as during the recordings of their Canti d'innocenza, canti d'esperienza first album, the band released a personal arrangement of the Rolling Stones' classic Satisfaction, and their record company Fonit decided to release it as a single under the new name Tritons. By the time the single was recorded, their drummer Gianni Belleno had left the band and was replaced by former Atomic Rooster Ric Parnell, who also played on Ibis' second album.

The single was an instant hit in Italy as well as in other countries, and when the band left Fonit for the release of an album on Polydor, again called Satisfaction, the old record company issued an LP called Country rock live by Tritons, that despite the title was not a live album nor by the real Tritons, being a collection of covers played by an English group, the Roy Young Band, under a false name!

The Satisfaction LP was also a sort of divertissement for the musicians, being all made by covers of 50's and 60's rock classics with original and pleasant arrangements, but to make things more confused, another similar LP was released by the old drummer Gianni Belleno on Magma label as Johnny dei Tritons.

The "real" Tritons were in fact the ones on Polydor, a band composed by five musicians backing the four Ibis members.
In 1974, when Salvi and Parnell left Ibis, the remaining members Di Palo and Laugelli recruited two new musicians to record their third and last album, leaving Tritons to concentrate on their own work. The five remaining Tritons released a last single in 1976.
