Biography

There are two groups called Tonto, one Swiss and another Spanish.

1. Tonto claims to be “generally more insane than an insane thing with three tails that has been left in a corner until it is blue and starts developing exo-planets. TONTO is an experimental electronic artist. “Bass driven garage industrial electronica. www.myspace.com/wearetonto

Currently there are two TONTO albums

The four songs on “Premeditated Carelessness” both defy and confirm the insanity that is TONTO. A polyphonic concoction of beats and samples with a big bottom end. There appears to be no limit to what Tonto will throw into the mixer. Indeed as TONTO tells us it sounds like “Tuesday on a Wednesday morning”!

The end of 2008 saw the latest installment from the Swiss-based TONTO entitled, “Reflections In”. You can also hear this on TONTO’s MySpace page. It was a long time coming and the procrastination was in the end futile … as is usually the case. Mostly recorded in early 2008 with an almost complete remix the saw these latest four tracks released just in time for the Christmas rush. It could be described as more of the same but given we haven’t worked out what the first album sounded like, this doesn’t get us any closer.

2. Tonto is a Alternative Pop Rock group from Madrid, Spain with a little bluesy and Beatles influences in their music started in the mid 00s. They sing in Spanish and some 10 songs are freely available. Their lead singer sounds somewhat like Joe Cocker or an Zucchero.
