Biography

Hi-fi attitude compresse in lo-fi seconds twined with noisy synthetic pop winks…“Lazer punk” they call it. What Rodo (bass and keyboards), Valentín Torres (keyboards) and Jung Sing (drums and vocals) have been doing since the beginning of 2005, in the warm border city of Mexicali, Mexico, is something far beyond “simple” punk.
This young musician’s power combo, with a sinister humor and electronic hints, roughly deconstruct rock music that, until today, has grown a great legion of fans all over the country. These three mannequins breakthrough the conventional apparel, making you go wild and dance with music you’re not even supposed to dance to. Maniqui Lazer blends the heritage of Iggy Pop’s attitude on stage and the impudence of The Liars live.
Maniqui Lazer may fill the gap between the sound of The Blood Brothers, Les Georges Leningrad and XBXRX. Their debut album was produced by Mexicali’s techno favorite Ruben Tamayo a.k.a Fax (Traum, Static Discos, Rocket Racer).
That might explain why in such a short time, they’ve shared stage with bands like: Xiu Xiu, Viking Moses!, Erase Errata, The Black Lips, The Spits, XBXRX (together they toured border cities in early ‘06), Montag, The Locust (toured mexico in june ’07), Sleeping People, Crystal Castles, James Holden, The Rapture, Numbers, My Disco as well as known mexican artists like Fax, Zoe, Plastilina Mosh, Silverio, Childs, Austin TV, Insite, E.lebleu, She’s a Tease, Quiero Club, Panoptica, Niño Astronauta, Titán, Fancy Free among others.

Lyrics

Sleeping With Robots

Written By: Jung Sing

Robots now came to save the world
It’s the solution to clean your home
Sleep with robots it’s the future
Now you need to do it for contribution

Each sold separately
I wanna buy it
Each sold separately
I wanna buy it

Now……

Robots now came destroying the world
It’s the solution to clean the world
Sleep with robots it’s the future
Now you need to do it for this solution

Sonic Sex

Written By: Jung Sing

I see my girl watching me on the bed
And I love it
I see my girl looks so hot tonight
And I say oh baby, baby

Sonic sex for us
Sonic sex for sure
Sonic sex for us
Sonic sex for sure

I see my girl looks so beautiful
tonight, and I love it

Now I see my girl putting that
gun in my head
I can’t believe that

I don’t need this shit no more
