They say, there’s only so much you can do in Adelaide. But for those in the know, Adelaide is a fertile breeding ground for undiscovered rock and one of the bands doing the hard yards away from the spotlight is KASAVETT - that, however, is all about to change. The core of KASAVETT is Dan (vox/guitar), Phil (bass/vox), Silvano (drums), and together they’ve developed an energetic rock sound that has been impressing punters around the country. Formed at the beginning of 2003, the boys wasted no time in pushing their take on alternative rock in front of people’s faces - and for a band that hadn’t been around long, managed to play some awesome rocking shows with the likes of Spiderbait, Frenzal Rhomb and Dallas Crane. The 2004 ‘Panic Attack’ EP helped to kick things up a notch as well, with live fave ‘Anode’ getting a spin on Triple J’s Home and Hosed with Robbie Buck, while ‘She Lights Me’ was picked up and placed on rotation by UK station Pulse FM and ‘Leave it to me’ getting heavy play on a number of regional Oz stations 2005 and 2006 have been a massive years for the KASAVETT crew, playing to thousands of people and sharing stages with Shihad, Grinspoon, Rocket Science, Killing Heidi, Thirsty Merc, The Mess Hall, Betchadupa, The Cant’s The Spazzys, the award winning Drones, The Fauves, and The Butterfingers as well as top Adelaide band the Hot Lies - and KASAVETT have done it the hard way, hitting the country and playing gigs from Cummins on the South Oz Eyre Peninsula to Nimbin and Bryon Bay, Wodonga, Warrnambool, Geelong and Melbourne. EP “Mexican Jesus” was released in 2006, getting airplay around the country and letting the lads play shows all over the place. They're currently sitting on an EP's worth of new material recorded with Adelaide legend Matt Hills (Bit By Bats, Wolf and Cub) and are bunkered down writing a bunch of even newer, shinier songs
