MPB was created in November 1989 in Durango (Bizkaia).
The group is formed by the following: Diego (voice), Javi (guitar),
Markos (guitar), Alberto (bass) and Lolo (drums). Were with us (Mikel Giss
1989-96, Biti 1989-94 y Txululu 1989-92). Many styles are present in our
Punk-rock, Ska, Reggae and Hardcore and apart
from a change in voice and bass in 1996, we remain the same people in the group
from the beginning.
the material we have published has been produced by ourselves and distributed
out of the usual commercial ways thanks to the help of alternative distributors,
groups and establishments.
have never taken self-production as a resource to give our first steps in the
world of music. For us it has always been an objective we wanted to reach: to be
able to produce our own works, to manage distribution, to decide questions
related to concerts, amount of copies to put on sale, the price our works would
have… in a word, to manage our own work ourselves.
this has supposed we have had to face difficulties such as the fact that we have
passed inadvertently for many means of diffusion, it has been complicated to
reach some stages, and our work has been distributed in a limited way due to the
lack of support from a manager or a record company. We are aware of this.
Nevertheless, it has been pleasant to self-produce our work and that makes us
forget in a way the difficulties we have gone through.
in all, we have published a layout and 4 CDs during the sixteen years we have
been together; we have given around 200 concerts and have organized 5 tours: two
of them in Portugal and the other three in Galicia, Cataluña and Castilla. We
try not to fall in the mercantilist machinery that governs the world of music
and proclaim by means of our music and our band itself that a different way of
acting is possible.
And this is just the beginning. Our history will carry on…
