Biography

There are at least 3 bands/artists with the name Sancho:

1) Sancho are an upbeat concoction with dark, playful lyrics. Sonically adventurous, ambiguous but direct, messy yet accessible. The sound has been compared to Dexy's Midnight Runners, Roxy Music, Serge Gainsbough, Bonzo Dog Doo Dah Band, Pulp, Orange Juice, Scott Walker, Stereolab and Beefheart.

Sancho combine 50s doo-wap with early 80s pure pop, raw DIY aesthetics with subtle electronics and use it to songs that take in vampiric try-hards, sexually primed town councilors at war, lady murderessess, stowaways, ghosts, cheap cider and romantic entanglements on the battlefield.

Although starting out a few years ago as a bedroom electronic project with releases on Wagram, Superglider and Seed Records, Sancho has grown into a polysexual mutant, where boy-girl vocals alternately carress and fight walst downstairs brass, strings and accordions share an ex council tenancy with choppy rhythms and cheap guitars.

2) Reggae artist with benchmark song "Chase vampire", little heard riddim but with some big version (Col lloyde - weh dem do).

3) Cologne-based DJ and producer, real name: Dominik Antoni
