Guretti is the homonym first record of the musical collaboration between the accordionist Angelo Cacciolato and the visual artist and musician Tiziano Ciao.

Ben Overlaet on guitar and Jan Van Woensel on drums recorded and self-released "Movements" and "I Want to Disappear into the Black Back of the Night Watch" and played several noteworthy gigs in Belgium, Germany and Norway. Later Ben's brother Dave joined the band on bass guitar and their music became more structured, although the adventure of noise would never be far away. After a while, Jan decided to leave the band and Tim replaced him as a drummer. In that period their typical grunge sound was born. With their grunge set, inspired by bands like Sonic Youth, Smashing Pumpkins and Nirvana they played several gigs in Belgium and the Netherlands until Jan left again to work on his own music and got replaced by Chadwick and then by by Waut who is their current drummer. They’re now working on new material while continuing to play live shows and they will soon hit the studio to record a new album.
