Biography

Lanús, Buenos Aires, Argentina (1991 – present)

Babasónicos is a music band from Lanús, Buenos Aires, Argentina, formed in 1991. Lead by singer Adrián Rodríguez a.k.a. “Adrián Dárgelos”, the original line-up of the band had Diego Tuñón (“Uma-T”) on keyboards, Diego Castellano (“Panza”), on drums, Adrián’s brother Diego Rodríguez (“Diego Uma”) on guitar and occasional vocals, Mariano Domínguez, (“Mariano Roger”) on lead guitar and Gabriel Manelli (“Gabo”) on bass.

Their debut album Pasto was recorded and released in 1992 and has guest appearances by Gustavo Cerati, Daniel Melero and members of other groups which, at the time, were also part of the New Argentinian Rock (or Sonic rock) movement, such as Martes Menta and Juana La Loca. The only single released from Pasto was “D-Generación”, which was a minor radio hit at the time and made the upcoming band known to Argentinian listeners. The album has an eclectic style, with many of the tracks being short skits (such as “41” de Ocio”, which consists of the band chatting between songs; or “Mutha Fucka”, a track which seems to have been made by cutting and pasting together various audio samples taken from TV).

For their second album Trance Zomba, released in 1994, DJ Peggyn joined the band. As a a consequence of the band having now 6 members, this album has a mixture of Rap, Funk and Hardcore Punk, but at the same time even psychedelic rock influences. “Malón”, “Montañas de Agua”, “Patinador Sagrado” and “Koyote” were the singles released for this album.
