Danava are a frankly incredible prog/space/insane band. I was fully obsessed with their debut EP and album and they utterly blew my mind playing to 30 people at The Underworld at 7.20pm last year (retarded organisation!) I had a brief email interview chat with their visionary lead dude Dusty Sprinkles. Don't miss them if the play again.

Phil Anselmo recently played guitar on stage with them. I guess he still has it.

Pronounced "don-uh-vuh" right? Where does the name come from?

Yes... we were named by our beloved former synth player Rosy Cross, the master of band names. Danava, in one word, is a demon. It's all too much to explain exactly who and what Danavas were, but for me it simply refers to the lower levels of humanity or the dark side of us all. Using the name, for me, is a personal challenge. We're not trying to be "evil" by using the name.
