BABASONICOS SOUND OFF FOR SHURE

BabasonicosNILES, IL — Even after 18 years as a band and nine albums, the Babasonicos are still hungry. “We will never be satisfied to rest on our achievements,” says the band’s frontman Adrián Dárgelos, “because it is in our very nature to continually subvert and change the panorama of what is understood as music.”

Mucho, the band’s latest album, brings expression of the band’s latest evolutionary steps into sharp focus with a selection of songs mixed in London by Phil Brown of Roxy Music fame.

“Phil has always been a mythical rock-god engineer to us,” Dárgelos says. “Given our rock en espanol budget, we didn’t think there was much chance of us ever working with him, however. That’s why we were stunned after we sent him a disc of some of our songs, and he accepted to do Mucho right away.”

Bringing the songs of Mucho to Babasonicos’s live stage act along with their heavy catalog of other hits is a job the band trusts to Shure. Now, wired with PSM ®700 personal in-ear monitors, Diego Rodriguez opts to stick with an SM58® microphone for vocals, a choice he has made since very early in the band’s career.

“I started rehearsing with Babasonicos in 1985,” Dárgelos confides. “We were all friends in secondary school in Argentina, or what you’d call high school in the U.S. One of the first things we bought was an SM58. Today, we still own a number of Shure mics, and that original is probably still one of the ones we’re using. It may seem surprising, but this goes to show you that a microphone bought more than 20 years ago can indeed still work virtually the same as it did new.”

Born and bred in a school of rock taking root in Argentina in the late ’80s known as sonic underground, Babasonicos has taken a more mainstream approach in recent years, citing diverse influences ranging from bands like The Beach Boys and The Rolling Stones to Black Sabbath, Led Zeppelin, and Sly and the Family Stone.

“We belong to a wide range of musical tastes,” Dárgelos adds. “Whether we are conscious of it or not, everything has become part of our musical education.”
