the band

malatesta is an indie-dirt band from stuttgart/germany and startet in 1999 with a rough and subversive approach. malatesta rocks!!!

band-members are

børge: guitar, vocals

le belge: bass, ts

pulle: drums

repeter: throat, keyboard, harp

malatesta started in 1999 with the initial line up of pepè, le belge and the talents of marek janiak on guitar and sebastian till on drums. a demo entitled “when orange rain comes down” was quickly recorded. the original line-up only lasted a few months and janiak and till soon left and were replaced by pulle (aka smasch) and andreas ebsen. ebsen brought along another guitar player, Christian “crispine” vahlbruch, before eventually leaving the band too (he later became the guitarist in the band of diane weigman). with this line-up malatesta made their live debut (deep within a spooky forest), recorded another demo, “latex gloves/rubber strings” and played several highly energetic gigs locally. after the departure of chrispine (who joined debauchery and high heel horn dogs) börge joined the band in september 2008, thus creating the current line-up.

we would like to thank the previous members of the band andreas ebsen, christian vahlbruch, marek janiak, sebastian till who contributed to many songs we are still playing now and helped starting malatesta
