Profondo Rosso were a 3-piece indie/punk/rock band from Sunderland, N.E. England. Formed in 1992 and taking their moniker from the Italian slashflick directed by Dario Argento, the original lineup comprised John Savage, Duncan Garvey and Graeme Watson. Early influences included Swervedriver, Manic Street Preachers, The Sex Pistols, Jane's Addiction, The Stone Roses, Suede, The Who and Ned's Atomic Dustbin to name but a few. Graeme left the band in 1993 to pursue other interests and after a short while Karl Rouleau was drafted in to replace him. The band's powerful and energetic stage shows gained them popularity on the local scene and attracted the interest of local label Neat Records. This kicked off a successful partnership which saw the release of EP 'Extrapolate', singles 'Open Plan Go' and 'Auto Erotic' as well as two albums - 'To Live, And Die, In The UK' and 'Next Stop Neurosis'.

The band also enjoyed numerous gigs including support slots with punk legends, The Damned and 'New Wave of New Wave' doyens, S*M*A*S*H. Neat Records at one point were partnered with Japanese media giants Pony Canyon to release material in Asia, the band embarked upon a lucrative tour of Japan. Profondo Rosso's promising career was cut short in 1997, however, as Duncan badly broke his wrist and Karl vacated the drum stool soon after. The band briefly got back together at the end of 2006 but Karl had interests elsewhere and was reluctant to continue. Later attempts were made to revive the band but inevitably this was not to be.
