Especially known for their explosive live performances, The Last Internationale is constantly reinventing a new and eclectic sound that can be summed up as follows: guitar-driving, bass-pumping, boot-stomping garage rock, blues, punk, folk laced with a powerful, soul-charged (sometimes melodically haunting) voice that can fill any room. Opening for acts such as David Peel (Apple Records, John Lennon) and David Rovicks, TLI has performed over 150 shows in the past year alone and is currently on a 6-month tour of the US.
The Last Internationale can be heard on community and college radio stations throughout the US and Europe, including the award program Democracy Now! They will also be featured in an upcoming documentary, Freedom Rocks!, with music icons Bono and Sting.

But what you get instead is gruff, pseudo-biker-bar jukebox material sung by a gal who's more Glenn Danzig than Karen O. It's brutal blues mixed with roughneck rock 'n' roll- or what Bare Jr.'s "You Blew Me Off" would have been if the whole record was made in a fire-fight. Internationale's "Crawlin' Queen Snake" evokes images along the lines of the bloody shoote-'em-up video for Dead Weather's "Treat Me Like Your Mother"- and doesn't sound too far off, either. We'll be watching from the back, well out of range of the band's fury.

I am in awe of the creative power of this duo, Edgey and Delila. Their recordings, which were produced by Edgey, perfectly capture their captivating intensity.

And they are captivating. Singer Delila is a knockout who doesn’t know it. I felt like a perv. She and guitarist Edgey make beautiful folk songs and protest songs, and they have a downright serviceable blues-rock band as well. The crowd shouted “Worker’s of the World Unite!”—one of the duo’s more popular songs, as well as their message."

The vocalist reminds me of Chrissie Hynde of the Pretenders. Great voice. The music is rock. The lyrics are revolutionary.
"Crawlin' Snake Queen" is fierce. It rambles on in an old school kinda way. Very retro sounding, but in a good way. I love this music.
Her voice does it for me. If you like female - fronted rock/punk/blues, you will love this. Very good. A very good (dare I say) "alternative" to everything else that is out there right now.
There is nothing this good on the radio right now. They are very nostalgic and you don't find many female vocalists this good. Very soulful, almost smokey voice. The lyrics are thought-provoking and meaningful. Check out their myspace.
