Singers/synth players Nathaniel Fregoso and Dyan Valdés are founding members of critically-acclaimed indie band The Blood Arm. Drummer /singer Hannes Neupert is formerly of Berlin garage band The Mokkers. The three played together in a German-language cover band of The Fall called Der Sturz, and decided to form Mexican Radio to write their own original music in a post-punk style.
The band take their name from the synthy new-wave Wall Of Voodoo song "Mexican Radio," which coincidentally features a sampled recording of Fregoso’s late father, a renowned Spanish-language radio presenter.
As part of Impression Recordings’ Re-Record project, the three-piece replicated the song ;Don't You Want Me’ in its entirety, even managing to line up the release date with the original single, which became Christmas Number 1 in the UK after selling over 1,560,000 copies. Releasing on November 27, 2020, the single will include an instrumental B-side alongside a behind the scenes look at the process of the technical replication of the song with producer Robbie Moore.
