We have 6 songs completely finished that we incorporate into our set list when we play live, and are working on about 4 more. Two of our songs are on our myspace page and had received over 2000 plays in the first two weeks we posted them. We unfortunately have not had any radioplay, but our exposure is really just starting to pick up the pace now. A couple line up changes and various other obstacles kept us from being able to get out there and play shows as much as we'd like, but we perform regularly at Bill's Bar in Boston, MA and consider our first track on the site, "Pheromones", to be our first single, if you want to call it that.



22 Pesos came together ... by luck more than anything else. We all live about 100 miles away from each other, and share a very unique bond with each other. The great connection and the love for the music we create is what keeps us each spending around $80 in gas every week. We all come from very different musical backgrounds, and very different musical views. Ed is very much into hardcore and classic rock; Nate is into alot of diff music and as a dj gets influenced by all genre's; Andy is your stereotypical Metallica-influenced rudimentary bassist; Paco is formerly from a hip hop background and actually experienced a good deal of success 10 years ago in a band called Flip 22 (formerly under the alias Jmaze); and myself (Steve) - I like psychedelic music such as Pink Floyd. What makes us work is our ability to listen to each other. I think the biggest thing that brought us together was the fact that we're unhappy with the way rock music is right now. Its either 'my girlfriend broke up with me and I want to slit my wrists', 'lets talk about gross things like necrophilia', or just trying to sound like everyone else and saying you have a unique sound when you don't. So, we just started doing our own thing, and it has basically become an addiction. When we're not at practice, we're working on artwork, our page, trying to get shows, and anyone who knows us will tell you we never shut up about it. We love music, for the music's sake. We believe that we have a message to get out to everyone, and that message is "Please Wake Up."
