The Parrots have played across Europe, the US and Central America, playing raucous gigs of elemental garage noise, feelgood ferocity and many, many stage invasions

Diego García, Alex de Lucas (bass) and Larry Balboa (drums) met at university in Madrid, began playing music together, and noisily hacked out a place for their primordial, loose-hipped rock’n’roll. “The idea of Los Niños Sin Miedo – The Fearless Kids – came about because in Spain it’s really difficult to make it as a rock’n’roll band,” they say. “When we started there were so many indie bands, indie bands, indie bands. No one would back us, no other bands, no media, nobody. So we got on with it, and people started coming to our shows, promoters started booking us, but at the beginning it was just our gang of friends in Madrid, working on our music, writing, singing, DJing, art, photography.”

That gang includes Hinds, whose brilliant recent album Leave Me Alone was produced by Diego, and Los Nastys, one of whom is Diego’s flatmate. “Now people are talking about the Madrid scene, Madrid’s ‘new wave’, and we’re like, ‘Fuck you, you ignored us for so long!’ So we do it for us and our friends. We were scared of nothing, we wanted to do it all the way. It has always been rock’n’roll until the end, as hard as we can.”
