'[LaFaro] unleash a troika of songs that few local bands have it in their arsenal to match. ‘The Ballad of Burnt Dave’, ‘Sucking Diesel’ and ‘Tupenny Nudger’ are delivered with the band’s typical acerbic abandon ensuring that a set which had threatened to veer of course remains a triumph.'

LaFaro Support No Spill Blood on July 5th Upstairs Whelan's, Dublin
'Blessed with a thundering, throbbing, heavy duty sound, typified by breakneck rhythms, clattering percussion and snarling vocals, Black, Magee, LaFaro and Lynn easily charm the pants off the Whelan’s massive, some of whom are too entranced by the racket to headbang along.'
"I've only moved back from Sheffield a few months so I'm looking forward to actually seeing all these NI bands that I keep hearing about and never see" - Oisin

Any Dutch fans who can translate please?
Sure, this album is emphatically unsexy, rough ‘n’ ready and clumsy. But LaFaro see this as anything but a weakness. No - they’re justifiably proud as punch. A frontal masterpiece in shit brown. Fuck me, this bucking bronco of an album is fun! - 9/10
After a mammoth tour of Europe, LaFaro return to rip up the UK.
Jonny talks tours, the NI scene, Larry David, German chefs, Derry 'wans', writing 'fuck' songs and posthumously fires Scott LaFaro...
Something for the Dutch fans.
Smalltown America to host night at the first ever Camden Crawl Dublin.
LaFaro's Jonny Black explains 'Easy Meat' track-by-track. An insight? Maybe. The truth? Possibly. Good reading? Definitely.
No rest for the STA wicked, this month: MTC Record Debut Album, LaFaro & FWW European Tour News, Our Krypton Son's Irish Aerial Assault and the usual ...'more' in this month's STA newsletter.
'It’s not for everyone, and it’ll be interesting to see what they decide to do next, but either way, whatever they’ve got, the people of Belfast want a lot more of it.'
'Uiteindelijk kwam ik er op uit dat de muziek wel wat weg had van Peter Pan Speedrock en de zang wel een beetje leek op Johnny Rotten van de Sex Pistols, maar ook hier zijn de overeenkomsten nog vrij ver gezocht.' [This definitely sounds interesting...Any translators?]
'Easy Meat klinkt als Motörhead in overdrive, overkill wordt het echter niet.' [Anyone available to translate?]
"For years the English have been trying to convince the world that the Germans never laugh, that they all wear storm-trooper uniforms and that they are all called Siegfried. But the German people are some of the warmest, funniest people we have ever met." - Jonny
"Throw a glass at Oisin if he makes a mistake." - Jonny
'Savage, crunchy, dissonant and punctuated with dynamics that deliver a huge break and massive drop.'
LaFaro have 'the drop'? - Do one Skrillex...
Taken from February's issue of Oor Magazine. Still in need of translation.
'Any anxieties about Black being seated were ill-founded; tonight the songs speak for themselves, with the frenzied crowd more than making up for Black’s lack of movement.'
Jonny Black talks to Molten Magazine about a year in the life of LaFaro during 2011.
"Compared to you we look like the monsters out of 'Lord of the Rings'." - Jonny
'With fat riffs and their manic vocals this band is about to institutionalise itself into the hardcore genre.' - 6/10
'It’s starting off with a surprise attack: Full Tilt is losing it without warning and hitting the right spots. Nose first, temples second. You’re stumbling. Langer is mocking the German citizenship and during Sucking Diesel the brawl becomes a party'.- Album Of The Year - 10/12
"[Here is] so much better than where we're from. Belfast is a fucking shithole, more like a minefield."- Jonny
You don't need to speak Dutch to guess what 'Jonny Black zit op een stoel' means...
'LaFaro speelt stevige rocksongs die net wat harder aangezet zijn dan bij (het bekendere werk van) Therapy?' - Dutch speakers required!
'Lafaro close the opening night of Eurosonic and these Irish do it with verve.'
Well, not quite. LaFaro and Our Krypton Son anyway...
'If you're from Belfast it's not surprising you make this type of music Lafaro does. Compare it to an unexpected headbutt and you kinda get the idea.
