Los Albertos are a Brighton-based Ska punk band.[1]

While their guitar sound ranges from chicken scratch to Carlos Santana, and the horns veer from wall of brass to kelzma reediness in their riotous, joyous sound, lyrics cast the net far and wide.[2]

The band has produced 3 albums and have toured Europe and the UK, and played at numerous festivals including Glastonbury Festival.[3] Some professional producers such as Al Scott who also worked with English rock band, The Levellers have worked with the band.[4] In January 2009, Nic Tribe, the band's bassist decided to leave the band to pursue his own direction. The band later replaced Nic with Jim Gallagher briefly, before full-time member Adam Futcher joined up.[5]
