LaFaro

Lafaro  Cover Easy Meat

LaFaro – Easy Meat – VÖ 13.01.2012 (Smalltown America / Cargo Records)

Polar opposite to the delicate poise of the influential jazz bassist Scott LaFaro from which this Belfast quartet takes their name, LAFARO are a wrecking ball of a band. Their rhythmic post-hardcore is designed to pulverize dance floors and leave no bottle of beer undrunk – this is music distilled to its fundamental elements.

‘We hark back to time when rock music was still fun”, states lead rabble-rouser Johnny Black ominously. Recalling THE JESUS LIZARD, SHELLAC, HELMET (with whom the band have toured Europe) and Northern Ireland heroes THERAPY? LAFARO have character, chops and emotion oozing through every seedy riff.

“I love to write about life’s dark little secrets – the things we all know happen but never get discussed.” On “Easy Meat” LAFARO have transplanted their sound into a black, hellish and apocalyptic space. Gone is the echo of grunge, it has been replaced with metal’s electric chair.

Quotes

“Sehr überzeugend, was uns LAFARO aus Irland hier vorlegen. (..) LAFARO klingen wohltuend schräg und haben es geschafft, auf dem gleichnamigen Album neben einigen wirklichen Earcatchern auch jede Menge Humor unterzubringen.” – Big Five

“Irlands noisigste Band seit Therapy? räumt daheim schon kräftig ab. Aus gutem Grund. Ihr Mix aus Mclusky, Jesus Lizard und Asskick-Rock’n’Roll peitscht wie verrückt. (..) Dermaßen präzise und Schubdüsen-geschwängert wurde in Irland schon lange nicht mehr gerockt.” – Visions

“Die härteste Band Irlands seit Ewigkeiten zeigt uns auf ihrem Debüt den totalen Hammer.“ Guitar

“Fett! Fetter!! LaFaro!!! (..) Cool, witzig, dreckig und hart. Was will man mehr?” – Legacy
