I’m not the biggest fan of noise rock but years ago Allan Stewart (Idlewild) and Alex Grant told me about a side project they were involved with called Desalvo and Allan gave me a 3-song demo that was filled with blast furnace, face melting NOISE. That being said, I LOVE the demo I was given – partly because Allan and Alex are good guys and partly because I had a reason to like the demos (they reminded me a bit of Knut, a band that I was introduced to by Aereogramme
Desalvo was featured on a Rock Action sampler this summer and will be releasing their debut album – Mood Poisoner – in September (not sure whether it will be available in the U.S. but I’m keeping my fingers crossed).
Check out a video for “Oedipus Rising” (warning: not for the weak of heart)
Here’s the tracklisting for Mood Poisoner according to Desalvo’s MySpace page:
