Biography

Two guitars, bass and drums. The mighty Young Fresh Fellows dedicated a song to this immortal formula and the four guys in Biscuit have been faithful to it since they started playing together in 1989. Their first band, Blue Bus (which also included an organ player as the guys love the sound of a good old Hammond as well) folded in 1994 after causing a bit of a stir in the Spanish psych garage scene with an album and a few gigs all over the country. Thus, Biscuit was born. Since then, Biscuit have been busy recording four cd’s, an EP and a bunch of songs for compilations as well as playing wherever they have been invited to. Their last record, “Cinnamon Fadeout”, appeared in may of 2009 to a raving welcome both by critics and audiences. The music of Biscuit has been compared to the likes of the Jam, Soundtracks of our lives, The Hellacopters, The Prisoners, The Monarchs or Tom Petty but they prefer to simply label it “rock’n’roll music” and to the four biscuits that means everything from the Byrds and the Beatles to the MC5 or the Pretty Things. From power pop to hard rock and freakbeat, never forgetting black R&B as the primal foundation of (almost) everything they love to hear and play.
In the last few years, Biscuit have shared the stage with and deserved the praise of several top notch national and international bands including British sixties poppers Bronco Bullfrog, American hard rockers Mother Superior, garage-pop next-big-things the Boss Martians, the legendary Arthur Lee, MC5/DKT, Paul Collins Beat, Johnny Casino or The Dexateens.
