This is the title track from DEZ MANKU's first release FEAR AND LOVE. "Dez Manku" is the creation of Mike Boldt and Phil Gallo. Their first musical endeavor goes back to 1998 when they both worked on the music score for the hard hitting film, "West New York" directed by Phil Gallo. The feature starred Frank Vincent and Vincent Pastore, veteran actors from Martin Scorcese's "Goodfellas" and "The Sopranos". They connected musically again in 2005 for the score of "Mattie Fresno and the Holoflux Universe". Throughout both projects they kept discussing writing and performing together in a non-film genre. Shortly after "Mattie..." they decided to finally begin composing, then recording a collection of songs. The recording, tentatively titled "The Mike Phil Project", began to take shape. After about seven months of work, the album was completed. They decided to name the group Dez Manku and the collection became "Fear and Love".
Phil has done numerous soundtracks including the feature film, "Mother's Day" with Clem Vicari. This collaboration operated under the name "Sleight of Hand" which eventually led to other soundtrack projects including a few parody commercials for "Saturday Night Live".
Mike has written songs that have appeared on Columbia and Capitol Records and has recorded two solo albums, "James Bond and Beyond" and "Tribute to John Wayne's The Alamo". He recently won a Telly Award for Best Music Score for the DVD, "At the Alamo" The CD FEAR AND LOVE is available for download on iTunes and Amazon.
