Los Albertos


Los Albertos - Live - Vinyl & Digital on Brightonsfinest Presents

Los Albertos, the Brighton-based Ska punk band, return with a brand new live album, their first live LP. This six-piece ensemble of ska-dance protagonists have been transmitting their hi-energy tunes to the nation since their formation in 2002. Christened by the barmaid at their debut gig in the legendary Prince Albert, their fistful of grinning 2-tone skank with a twist of funk, punk, klezmer, rock and dub has drawn attention from far beyond the pebbled beaches of their hometown Brighton. In their fifteen year history the band have produced 3 albums, a recent EP, and now this live LP. They have extensively toured Europe and the UK and played at numerous festivals including Glastonbury Festival.

Los Albertos

They have a wide reputation for being an excellent live band and this record captures their energy and spirit perfectly. They've worked with several producers over the years, most recently reggae and ska legend Prince Fatty, who recorded the band's This Is A Serious Party EP. Prince Fatty brought his mobile recording studio to Brighton's prestigious Haunt venue to record this live album, giving the band a studio quality sound in spite of the raucous, chaotic nature of their live shows.

  • Los Albertos – The Haunt – 1st October 2016

    Los Albertos – The Haunt – 1st October 2016 Los Albertos – The Haunt – 1st October 2016 The atmosphere at The Haunt was already electrifying even before the support group Ratbag took to the stage to produce a rousing and vibrant performance which upped the temperature even more and spoke volumes for their own unique sound. Vita on lead vocals and accordian was visually captivating and soon had the audience in full swing and limbering up for the main event. Although I was not familiar with their songs they proved to not only be the perfect support but a very strong act in their own right.

  • Los Albertos – The Haunt – 3rd October 2015

    Los Albertos – The Haunt – 3rd October 2015 Los Albertos – The Haunt – 3rd October 2015 Out of the blue, this legendary Brighton based six-piece, were persuaded to reform in September of last year for just one performance, a private event at a friend's birthday. It had been two years since they had signed off in spectacular fashion with both a roadblock gig at the now sadly deceased Blind Tiger Club (does anyone know the real story behind this?) and the stage invading spectacle of Playgroup Festival in September 2012.
