Hi-fi attitude compresse in lo-fi seconds twined with noisy synthetic pop winksLazer punk they call it. What Rodo (bass and keyboards), Valentn 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 musicians 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 youre not even supposed to dance to. Maniqui Lazer blends the heritage of Iggy Pops 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 Mexicalis techno favorite Ruben Tamayo a.k.a Fax (Traum, Static Discos, Rocket Racer).
That might explain why in such a short time, theyve 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, Shes a Tease, Quiero Club, Panoptica, Nio Astronauta, Titn, Fancy Free among others.
"With a lusty charisma and a hilarious performance, Maniqui Lazer gives pop and rock an awkward twist never heard before. Is it pop? Is it punk? Toy electronic meets disco hardcore? Are they some sort of sci-fi post-punk preachers? Or is this the pop that will hit the punk rock billboards by the year 2010? Too many questions, but one thing for sure, its that they know how to make their audience
dance and yell without falling into or faking a trend.Whatever,dont theorize. Maniqui Lazer is here for you to have fun."
Marked by RADIANTE PRESS from Tijuana as best new
mexican band in 2005.
"...han creado un mounstruo mitad orgnico, mitad electrnico, que slo es peligroso si no sigues su orden: Baila desenfrenado
Una de las promesas ms grandes que di Mxico este ao, y dentro del gnero se estn ganando un lugar a nivel internacional, sin duda.

Cafena adulterada, metadona alta en colesterol, un coctelito para degustarse rpido y concretito. Viajes directo al 666 de su frecuencia cardiaca. Su disco debut I Learn Everything on TV es una pastillita para bailar que no saldr en el antidoping... por eso no se preocupen.

They call their brand of music - 'Lazer Punk'. They've only existed since December 2005, but they've already released a charm of an album and have built a substantial fanbase thoughout their native Mexico. Elements of Beat Punk, Electro-Synth and searing vocals is the reciepe of their latest effort, I Learn Everything on TV.
Un concentrato di Power Punk elettronico davvero molto potente. Look da manichini dancefloor gay oriented, devices electro clash, detonazioni alla Refused; effetti del sesso sonico.
These infectious songs made me want to dance, laugh, have sex, and smash a bottle over someones head all at the same time. Listening to this album is guaranteed fun from the first beat on if you enjoy diverse, ironic, deconstructed dance music with attitude.

"...the label's highlight is laptop-punk band Maniqui Lazer, whose great "I Learn Everything on TV" EP just happens to sound like Throbbling Gristle.
Sleeping with robots appears as one of 100 best 2006 songs at Reactor 105.7, main indie-rock radio station in Mexico city.
