1000 Mexicans

1000 Mexicans were a British indie band between 1983 and 1986, combining pop songwriting and rhythmic and harmonic style with their unique touches of experimentalism and eccentricity. Despite success in Europe and consistent critical acclaim, they never found favour with the UK record industry who appeared confused by their singular brand of humour and sometimes anarchic live shows. Described by one journalist as "the musical equivalent of the 70s Dutch team with their total football", the trio of Julian Griffin, Michael Harding and Andrew Hobday exchanged vocal and instrumental duties at the drop of a sombrero, "mixing melody and mayhem in equal measure". Andrew and Michael since then has reformed the band for the 21st century and will be playing live and releasing new material in 2015.
