Biography

Gossos is a Catalan rock band from Manresa. They are one of the most successful representatives of the “Rock Català” movement in the 2000s. Earlier in their career, they were characterized by their acoustics style — just using guitars and bass, no percussion — until 2002 when they added drums.

In summer 1993, Oriol Farré, Juanjo Muñoz, Natxo Tarrés and Roger Farré from Manresa, joined together to start a new band. They won an award with their first record “Gossos” (1994). After a few tours in Catalonia they edited their 2nd record “En privat” in 1996. Followed by “Mandala” (1997) and “Directament” (1998, recorded in the “Teatre Conservatori” of Manresa) with the collaboration of other consolidated members of the Catalan Rock like Cris Juanico, Gerard Quintana and Pemi Fortuny. In 2000 they recorded “De viaje”, their only album in Castillian so far, followed by “Cares” (2001).

In 2002 they move away from their acoustical style to start using electric guitars and drums. Their latest albums recorded are “El Jardí del Temps” (2003), “8” (2005) and Oxygen (2007).
