Right from the moment they first formed in1996, The Nu Niles have been playing the music they love. They started as a pure rockabilly band when that idea was totally anti-fashion, and probably one of the most underground things a band could be doing. They kept evolving until they found the unique Nu Niles sound of today – a mixture of basic Rock and Roll, Rockabilly, Surf, Punk, Ska, TexMex and Spaghetti Western themes, which somehow creates a solid whole.
Their proper debut is an acknowledged classic of Spanish rockabilly, and an LP that has become a reference point for all lovers of the style: what else could we be talking about than Good Luck, Good friends and Good Rockin’ (PART records, 1998)? A few years down the line, with the current line-up in place, they reinvented themselves under the banner of “Authentic 50’s Punk” on an LP packed with a variety of influences and an energy and sound leaning more towards greased-back garage-punk, opening them up to a more varied audience. Destination Now was like a blast of fresh air for anyone hearing the band for the first time. It’s something of a collector’s item among many lovers of Rock ‘n’ Roll, touching a variety of styles and genres without ever settling on any single one. It would have been easy for the band to repeat the formula on their next record You Didn’t Come to My Funeral (El Toro Records 2007) but instead they kept on pushing and under he capable guidance of Mike Mariconda (Raunch Hands, Devil Dogs, The Vancouvers) they made a rock ‘n’ roll record that took a lot more risks and managed to be a lot more raw, while at the same time being more mature in terms of song-writing and arrangements. Around this time, the band came up with the idea of doing a whole album in Spanish, deciding to record it during the Funeral sessions.
The Nu Niles have more than ten European tours to their name and two on the West coast of the USA as well as having played at the most prestigious rockabilly/rock ‘n’ roll festivals in the world. (Let’s see: Viva Las Vegas (USA ’02), Greenbay (USA ´03 and ‘05), Hemsby (UK ’98 & ’01), Rockin’ Rollin’ Walldorf (Germany ’00), Summer Jamboree (Italy ’04), Psychomeeting (Spain, ’05), Hollywood Showdown (USA ’05 and '07) Rockabilly Bombardment (Austria '08) and too many others to mention.
So it would be pretty safe to say that this is a band with a solid live reputation who are more ready than ever to take the stage (their natural habitat) to present the songs from their new album, Sin Rendición. They have opened shows for Kitty, Daisy and Lewis on 2010, and Mario Cobo, Nu Niles' leader, is part of the Kim Lenz & The Jaguars band.
