Their intentions may be marginally less murderous than their namesake Albert (look it up). but Desalvo are still resolute on beating our cars into submission with painful and exact precision. Theirs is the drttnk thttnk of sleazy bass, a cackle and crunch of serrated guitar and a lunge of drums that lesser players would render untidy. and in P6. a demon seed of a frontman. In truth, they are the tightest outfit this side of Duke Street. Live. think a cat with a mouse, or more accurately. a kid with a brick and a frog. There‘s no need for your horns in the air metallisms here. Desalvo. like all real good rock bands. do things a little differently. Confrontational. unconventional and truly worth experiencing.
