Guitarist Damo Fawsett joined Slam Cartel in 2014 and he came into a band that was becoming well established and had already built a significant fan base.
The band is the brainchild of Terance Warville, and after several years he had decided to make some changes to the lineup, so he brought in Gary Moffat on lead vocals, who in turn recommended Fawsett for he lead guitar position.
Fawsett brings to the band a wealth of experience having been gigging regularly across the UK and Europe for several decades in a wide variety of bands, sessions and situations, including a stint with the reformed Sacrilege and touring with Reagan Browne.

He's obviously got the nerve that goes with the job as one of his first gigs was replacing the legendary Dave Kilminster so stepping into a situation such as Slam Cartel, which is a bit different than what he's done before and presents new challenges as he fits his style into an existing machine.
The results seem to speak for themselves as the band's first single with the new lineup, the double A sides 'Vanishing Worlds'/'Hypnotized', have received excellent reviews and airplay on both sides of the ocean. The band is currently on tour across the UK.
