Biography

Barcelona, Spain (2003 – present)

Mendetz is a band from Barcelona, formed in 2003. They play guitars,Casios and other old keyboards. None of this songs are programmed or prerecorded, they like being robotic-craftsmen,keep the human touch handling electronic sounds. Frenetic drums, very rhythmic guitars, hard basses full the Mendetz sound.
They have a repertoire of 12 songs appoximately, one of them a version of Beatles’ “Eleanor Rigby”; tracks were recorded at the home studio of one member of Mendetz. They played live a few times in Barcelona, at Sala Mono,the KGB, Sala Spay9,La Báscula,etc… and they have been the best Demo of 2005, according to Mondosonoro magazine.

In their lyrics the talk abot future sex, to dignify lost actors from de 80’s,to remember ironically Chimo Bayo and comment the absence in identity of the XII century no-subjects plunged in grey,in fashion,in the fake communication. Mendetz keep trusting in old robots, in honest Casios, to keep the legacy of the feelings and human.

Mendetz evoke, to rhythm of broken keys of casio, a past redressed in an unavoidable future, never sweeping to frantic rhythms the memories of a lived yesterday.

Their sound and themes are very reminiscent of Duran Duran.

Mendetz es un grupo de Barcelona, formado en 2003. Tocan guitarras y Casios y otros teclados viejos. Nada de lo que tocan es programado ni pregrabado, les gusta ser artesanos de lo robótico, conservar el toque humano manejando sonidos electrónicos. Baterías a ritmos frenéticos, guitarras muy rítmicas, bajos contundentes completan el sonido de Mendetz.
