Pin-Occhio is an Italian electronic band composed of Nicola Savino and Marco Biondi. It had its peak of popularity in 1993 with two hit singles in Europe.[1]

History[edit]

In 1993, the band released his first single "Pinocchio" which used the music created by Italian composer Fiorenzo Carpi as the main theme for Luigi Comencini's 1972 TV miniseries Le avventure di Pinocchio. The song was a top ten hit in Belgium (Wallonia) and France.

A few months later, the duo released "Tutatutatutata", which used a sample from "Living on Video" of Canadian band Trans-X (later used in 2006 by Pakito).

A third single, "Vai!!", was released in 1993 and peaked at #34 in France. An album with the same name was also launched.

The fourth single, "Enjoy the Music", reached #48 in France in April 1994.

French television host Nathalie Vincent was sometimes vocalist and dancer of the band for several songs.
