"Based in Glasgow, Scotland and featuring members of Stretchheads and Idlewild, De Salvo twist the influence of hardcore and metal to demand your total sensual attention. This is incendiary, visceral and genuinely perverse music. Assimilating the sounds of traditional hardcore like Converge, Mastodon and Black Flag with the psychedelic madness of Butthole Surfers, De Salvo have gained a reputation as one of the best live bands in the UK. They are both confrontational and memorable but influence only tells half the story. Put simply, De Salvo are not a band that is easy to categorize. Their music is filthy, it's dirty, it's in your face, it leaves you feeling moist, aroused and slightly guilty. Recorded in early 2008 at Chem19 Studios with producer Paul Savage (whose credits include; Mogwai, Arab Strap & Malcolm Middleton) Mood Poisoner emerges as one of the hardcore albums of the year. De Salvo's debut album is a punishing ride for sure, but it's an exhilarating experience all the same. Fuck the destination, welcome aboard, 'cos it's time to strap-in and strap-on to truly experience this."
