Cactus formed in Roma at the end of 2000. After a couple of demos (Nervous and Cactus on Mars) , Cactus releases the 7 Music For Haters Vol.5 (Haterecords 2004, vinyl ltd. edition). Maximumrocknroll says: "Great stuff here - Mid period Fall-sounding art-punk from Italy. Three songs of distorto-damaged guitar over repetitive rhythms, punctuated by distracted, detached vocals. You'll dig it."
In 2006, Haterecords is proud to release CACTUS first album: 12 songs of intense garage-punk-wave, available on CD, black vinyl and ltd ed. transparent green vinyl. Daniela Motorama plays guitar and sing on five tracks. The CD includes 3 bonus tracks from the earlier 7" Music For Haters Vol.5. "Apparently this is the Pope's favorite new band as well as mine" (SD - Maximumrocknroll). View the Blog Box above for the reviews.
In 2008 Daniela Motorama joins the band and the sound of Cactus become infected with some vintage synths, theremin and drum-machines. The band plays some gigs with Cheb Samir on drums and then in 2009 Walter Montagna (Real Swinger, Brainers, Cessi, Pidgeons) is the new drummer of the band.
CACTUS played with Lost Sounds, Fuzztones, The Kills, Yumi Yumi, Sons of Cyrus, Motorama, Heavy Trash (Jon Spencer + Matt Verta-Ray), Metal Urban, Human Eye, Lorena and the Bobbits, TV Buddhas.
