WHO THE HELL IS MARCHICA?
Marchica is an unlikely meeting sealed in Pozoblanco, Córdoba in 2016 and materialized in May of this year with the return to Spain of singer and songwriter Pete Marchica (Long Beach, California).
Marchica is the result of said meeting between Pete Marchica and the Cordovan Miguelo Gómez and Antonio Jesús Moreno (both also rhythmic base of the quintet Some Men). The background that connects this triangle has its main pillar in the classic indie-rock, the one known as lo-fi (Sebadoh, Smog, Daniel Jonston, Pavement and The Flaming Lips) translated into the internet era, savage democratization and do it yourself of these times. PED XING is a transatlantic crosswalk dotted with beer, pipes, olives, baseball gloves, and psilocybin.
From May to December the band is in charge of composing, recording and mixing the album between Pozoblanco and Malaga, with 3 mikes and a computer. With mastering by Cem Oral (Jammin Mastering, Berlin, Germany). On November 26, the band released the first advance single from the LP, "Biloxi Shuffle", a captivating doo-woop heir to Mark E. Smith, Sonic Youth, Jonathan Richman and The Velvet Underground. The next day they train live performing at the Ambigú Axerquía Theater in Córdoba together with the power-trio (now quartet) Los Hermanos Dalton** , with 130 people in attendance.
