Biography

Its quite unusual for a band to get so much attention with just an EP out.
Its a result of time changes, of MySpace and YouTube, but also old fashioned way- of many live gigs that Les Fauves did all over Italy and not only. Born in July 2003 with the help of Case Zebra and Pap Sfroocer, with the subsequent addition of Sissy on bass, Les Fauves brought in 2005 their sick garage rock of Cramps, Television, Violent Femmes and Devo even to the International Festival of Benicassim, the Heineken Jammin Festival in Imola, and other Italian stages supporting Dirty Pretty Things, Art Brut and Gnarls Barkley. Then rumors spread among the press and the audience. In Jannuary 2006, after the addition of Puxx The Lover at keys, the ensemble recorded Our Dildo Can Change Your Life, a six tracks EP of RnR, Pop, Electro Dance and New Wave celebrated even by the English magazine New Musical Express (NME). Expectation for their first album , called NALT-1 A Fast Introduction, is really high. Recorded and produced early in 2007 at the Alpha Dept studio in Bologna by Giacomo Fiorenza and out in shops, licensed by Urtovox, this album promises an international visibility thanks to the European networking that in May 2007 let the quartet make their show in Belgium, Germany, France and UK. As evidence of Les Fauves ability to cross borders not only geografical ones but also old musical genres ones- stands the new collaboration with the English techno duo Swayzak; Silent Luv, part of the tracklist of their latest album out in August 2007 for K7, is, as a matter of fact, written and performed by Crop Sfroocer from Les Fauves.
