Biography

**Latest News**

Ipanema release their self titled anthology on 18th January 2008. The album contains 17 tracks and is available from record company, Boss Tuneage (www.bosstuneage.com) for a meager £10 including postage within the UK. All proceeds will benefit the Forward 4 Wiz Trust

***************************************************

Ipanema were formed in early ‘02 from the debris of the much revered globe-trotting “Mega City 4” and the oracular Serpico. Wiz, the creative force behind the rock trio having been round the world, not to mention the block more than once, joined Canada’s infamous Doughboys after the split of MC4. With appearances playing for “Ned’s Atomic Dustbin” and “Therapy?” also under his belt, the big nosed bard of the ‘boro had the talent and the experience to rock hard and mean it.

2003 saw the release of Ipanema’s debut single “Je Suis un Baseball Bat”, recorded and produced by legendary Chris Potter. Mixing melody with aggression, the single soon sold out and paved the way for the tantalising aural abuse that was to come.

And then as with all hardworking bands, the line-up started changing with the weather. Stalwart Wiz didn’t let it shake his creativity and once the band seemingly became settled, seeing a reunification of half of the old Mega’s line-up and new “drumming animal” on the block Lawrence, the boys hit Stakeout Studios to record their six song salvo “Me Me Me” in early 05. Received to great acclaim, the mini album gave way to numerous tours, taking place in France, Spain, Scotland and the UK to a feverous soundtrack of enrapturing proportion.
