avatar for LaFaro


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'. Set to release their sophomore effort on Smalltown America in March 2011 - many more will be snapped in LaFaro's jaws. If you can't get close enough to gouge their eyes out try whacking LaFaro on the snout. We fear however, that resistance is futile.
