It was great pleasure that i can announce that LAFARO will support THERAPY? in Castlebar this October!
Lafaro identify themselves as The musical equivalent of a Randy Savage elbow drop.
It’s useless to fight LaFaro if you are attacked. If they have you between their jaws they will not let go. If you do decide to put up a fight, LaFaro are likely to do a death roll. Polar opposite to the delicate poise of the influential jazz bassist Scott LaFaro from which this Belfast quartet take 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 as it should be ‘We hark back to time when rock music was still fun’ states lead rabble-rouser Johnny Black.
Recalling Jesus Lizard, Shellac and Helmet and NI melodic rockers 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’.
To date the band have release two critically acclaimed albums – 2010’s ‘LaFaro’ and 2011’s ‘Easy Meat’, comprising 90 odd minutes in total of sheer riffery and a fearless musical approach.
Lafaro support Therapy? in Castlebar at The Ruby Room on October 27th. Ticket’s are available from entertaiment.ie and Downtown Records in Castlebar now and cost 22.20 including booking fee
