represent today one of the European streetpunk scene’s most important bands. Formed in Verona (Italy) in late 1991, Los Fastidios, led by Enrico (well-known figure of the national scene and founder of the Italian label KOB Records) released a demo tape in 1992, and they asserted themselves into the European scene with the release of their first single “Birra OI ! e Divertimento”, EP sold out in a few months only, and with which the band got a great deal of good comments in Italy as well as abroad.
Their sound is a powerful melodic streetpunk which mixes classical 80’s British Punk-OI ! sounds with skanking rythms, everything sung in Italian. The lyrics come from the most cheerful street situations to more serious and involved matters which deal with social problems, such as battles against any form of discrimination, for the animal rights, for freedom and against the capitalistic system.
Over the last years, Los Fastidios have achieved great number of anti-racist intiatives and social causes,by taking part in various support gigs with collections in favour of Chiapas, for the workers, against racism, for the animal rights, against war, against capitalism and neoliberism, etc.
Sailing from the harbour-town of La Spezia, which, thanks to internationally successful bands such as THE MANGES or THE PEAWEES, established itself a reputation as Italy's „punkrock- city numero uno“, the four buccaneers of KING MASTINO got together in the year of 2007, from an idea of Massi and Alessio.
On their records (so far they've already released four full-lengths and nine 7") as well as during their explosive concerts they create an infectious mixture between the garagerock of THE STOOGES and the MC5, combined with a good dose of Australian punk in best RADIO BIRDMAN-tradition, some rememberances of THE HELLACOPTERS in their heyday and occasionally even refine it with some pinches of oldschool Malcolm Young-ish guitar work, but after all they were going to create an own personal sound,mixing as well their above written influences and their love for the Sea,recognized by their crew such a “dock’n’roll”.
Since October 2010 the four sailors began an intense live activity, which brought them not only to share the stages with likes of such as THE JON SPENCER BLUES EXPLOSION , RADIO BIRDMAN , DICTATORS , THE NOMADS,GRANDE ROYALE,MONDO GENERATOR , THEBELLRAYS , DOLLHOUSE , GIUDA , THE NEW CHRIST or BLOODLIGHTS, but also to cross the boot from North to South and eventualy also resulted in five European tours which led them through Italy,Germany, Spain,Sweden, Austria, Denmark, Holland, Belgium,France, Switzerland and the Czech Republic.
Through these sailing over,they released 4 LP(Rock for Sailors,Hold Fast,We Refuse to Sink,Sail Away) ,more than 20 between singles and splits. VVK
