Marco Pierantoni playing drums and me (Giulio Calvino) playing guitar. First demotape out in april 1996. I remember that some friends helped us out playing the bass on that one. Then with met Mauro Freddi, and he became our bass player. We soon released other 2 tapes, and then we decided to print a 7" back in 1998, for which i created ee:lettro, that was supposed to be the DIY homelabel of the Candies. The 7" was named SAD NEON LIGHTS After the 7" we had many problems with civil service between me and Marco, the drummer, so we couldn't really support the 7" on tour... The years 1999/2000 were good anyway, because we could make few shows supporting the first calexico italian tour and truman's water as well.

It was fun. Very soon we needed to put out some of the songs we made between 1998 (that couldn't fit the 7") and 2000 on a full length. ee:lettro was still running and this guy called Giuseppe sent me an email. He wanted to join the label to help me because he was really deep into indie rock and wanted to do something more than just listening. That was the turning point, since he started managing ee:lettro, things started to run faster in a good way for the band. He put out the record, did all the promotion, and helped me out for lots of things. The record was called LEAVING OUR HOMES. In this record Calexico's John Convertino and Volker Zander helped us out with additional drums, cello, vibes and percussions, and Kevin Brandsetter from the truman's water sang on one track as well. This record also was the start of a strong frienship with turn records, that licensed the record in the USA, Canada and UK. After LEAVING OUR HOMES we did 2 small european tours (Germany, Austria and Holland) and missed the UK tour because of lineup problems. Due to this, drummer Marco Pierantoni, co-founder of the band was replaced in early 2002 by Giordano Rizzato, between the first and the second european tour. As we came back with Giordano from the second european tour we met suiteside records that was willing to work with us for a new record.

We decided to write and record in a very short time period (rehearsing for 2 months, and recording in only 2 days) DENSE WAVES MAKE YOUR EYES WIDER that was also put out by our friends at turn records for the US and Canada.
