Desmadrados Soldados De Ventura

Formed in 2012 after free-rock guitar player Nick Mitchell (also lead member of improv power trio Chalaque) decided he wanted to set up a Manchester sister band to Albany, NY guitar army Burnt Hills with whom he shares close connections, Desmadrados Soldados De Ventura was established as a somewhat free-flowing collective of North West England based six-string cacophonists. Over the course of eight albums, the band has counted among its members/guests Ros Murray (Trash Kit, Electrelene), Joincey (Inca Eyeball, COITS) and Jon Collin, but has settled on a core seven including both members of the Birchall-Cheetham Duo, Tom Settle (Serfs) and, of course, Mitchell himself. Exploring the power and ecstatic potential of the endless crescendo, DSDV creates a dense junk pile of classic rock rhythms and solos until all coalesce into a drone-like hum, part transcendental, part pure hedonism. File next to your favourite max-ist excursions by Flower-Corsano Duo, Burnt Hills and Vermonster.
