Biography

This band is not related to Rory Gallagher’s band TASTE. If you’re looking for that band go to: http://www.last.fm/music/Taste .

Since Summer 2007, THE TASTE (NICK/drums and MARIA PATTUSCH/vocals, guitars) have been on the road as a duo (after starting out as a trio in 2004). In just a few months they’ve achieved what many other bands just dream about, having their track “Can’t Get Enough of Your Dang-Da-Dang” released in August on the “Fresh, Weird & Wonderful” compilation (Pistol Records, the label of ex-INXS manager Chris Murphy) which managed to reach Nr. 8 on the iTunes UK Alternative Album Charts as well as Nr. 68 on iTunes US.

This track from THE TASTE was the best selling one on the compilation and still is in Germany and the USA. Their song “Till There Was You” was subsequently released in October on the “Out of the Woods and Trees” compilation (UK, Dance to the Radio) alongside contributions from bands like FORWARD RUSSIA!, THE PIGEON DETECTIVES, HOWLING BELLS, SKY LARKIN and the GRAMMATICS. During the last few months THE TASTE have performed countless gigs in the UK, Germany and Austria. While doing so they have also toured as support act for JAMIE T., WE ARE SCIENTISTS, THE NOISETTES, FORWARD RUSSIA, TEST ICICLES, DUELS, SHITDISCO, THE ENEMY and TRAVIS.

TRAVIS were so impressed with the band that they immediately invited THE TASTE to do some additional dates with them back on their home turf in Scotland. FRAN HEALY & Co. were so thrilled with the song “Till There Was You” that they performed it twice with the band on stage.
