Sex Museum is one of our most veteran and iconic bands. The Madrid-based five-piece have been actively cranking out volcanic rock that range from 60s garage to head-banging skull-crushers.

Founded in 1985 they started singing in English, playing savage tunes and auto-producing their own music, attitude that they have proudly maintain along their 25 years of glorious music career.

From the original band remain Marta Ruiz and brothers Fernando and Miguel Pardo. The members of the group have alternate their success in Sex Museum with many parallel projects, the majority at a more underground level. Sex Museum's material has been highly influenced by a plethora of genres including soul, R&B, garage and psychedelia. Later releases have derived to a more 70s hard rock sound.

In 1987 they recorded their first LP "Fuzz Face" which is considered a garage music classic. From there, the rest is history. They are regarded as the Spanish independent band with the most solid, creative and continuous career. They have rocked their fans skeletons in some of the most popular and alternative festivals in Spain, such as Festimad, Espárrago Rock and Viñarock and across Europe, where they have shared poster with Metallica, The Love Warriors, Grave, Backyard Babies or Sonic Youth. In 1994 they were chosen as the opening act of Deep Purple's Spanish tour.

A number of kick-ass albums in the following years have confirmed Sex Museum as one of the most influential bands of the Spanish rock scene and one of our hottest export. "Again & Again" is their last work released in 2011 by their own independent record company and soaked with the 70's spirit, a bit of hard rock, psychedelia and good old rhythm and blues.
