The Story

The various members of Despistado all spent their childhood growing up in the small town of Regina, Saskatchewan. It’s probably important to note Saskatchewan has been recorded as the coldest place in the world. Not necessarily the perfect recipe for hot-blooded, post-punk rage. Yet somehow these guys from a town that only gets on average 2365 hours of sunshine a year were actually able to find parallel collaborators and in late 2001 Despistado was born. The band has spent the last few bouncing from club to club harnessing their sweltering live show while developing an unfaltering notoriety as the Canadian band to look out for. So while the now fertile Omaha indie-boom might be a direct reaction to Nebraskas‚ frigid and barren landscape, Saskatchewan’s backdrop is straight up glacial at times. Garnering Despistado all the credence they might need to finally take the states by storm.
