Desolation Angels
Desolation Angels Once, long ago, on a cold and desolate morning, an un-nameable baby was born. No one was quite sure what to call this certain child of exceeding singularity. His eternally lopsided soul spent much time bouncing off the walls, wreaking havoc and unable to be called upon, before someone thought to shout out "Rock & Roll!" He left home shortly after, and never returned. If you're one of the 4000+ people who have seen Desolation Angels, you know what it must have been like to gaze upon this un-damnable hellion, this ragged rapscallion rouge, and think to yourself, "Just what in tarnation exactly do we call this creature?" That's because Desolation Angels never went to the house Rock & Roll left behind to make it their base of operations. They have no desire to, like infinity, go up on trial forever on the walls of it's halls. Which is why you'll see their smiles mirror everyone's on the dance floor at their shows; ones of exuberant ill concealed ecstasy widening into a much broader variety than that of the Mona Lisa's. Instead they set out to run wild like that beatnik on the road, seeking the spirit of freedom, like Jack Kerouac. And whether you call him Dean Moriarty or Neil Cassidy, it's still the same soul that moves them.

On their last two tours, the question most often heard was "What type of music is this?" No one ever seemed to have the same reply. But don't wait for them to come to a town near you, head out on the road to find them and figure it out for yourself. But if you're still not convinced, you should know that they just finished their second tour with Melvin Seals, Stu Allen and JGB and have played with the likes of Phil Lesh, Dark Star Orchestra and Sam Kininger. And this is just the beginning...
