Fin de Transmision

VicenteGayo is a band originating from Satelité, Estado de México, which was formed in mid 2007. Vicente Gayo’s sound is defined by the basic elements of rock (lead guitar, bass, and percussion) in conjunction with “circuit bending” (electronic games and synths from the 80’s) created by themselves. This fusion of instruments creates an original sound that is very much their own.

 Their first material was recorded in December of 2007 at Asrael Studios ( Austin TVs studio), mixed and produced by Erick Espartacus, mastered by Harris Newman (Arcade Fire, Crystal Castles, etc) in Montreal Canada.

 The first two singles, “Fin De Transmission” and “G-A-Y-O” have received airplay on major radio stations such as Reactor, Radio-Ibero, and Interferencia, among others. The video for “Fin De Transmission” and “GAYO” has been on regular rotation on MTV Latinoamerica, and many others music channels.

 In 2009, VicenteGayo has performed in Mexico’s major cities (Monterrey, Guadalajara, Cd. Juarez, etc) in addition to a Los Angeles performance. Now, in 2010, VicenteGayo has been invited to play at SXSW and more recently they perform at Latin America’s most important “Rock en Español” music festival, Vive Latino. Recently they were nominated for 5 indie-o music awards from Mexico city, including, best live act, band of the year,and many others.
