Space Weirdo is a scientific rock / aggressive Canterbury / freak pop / infantile electronica band based in Madrid, Spain. It was accidentally founded by Germán Ponte and Pablo Chávarri in 2005, when they released a CD with no malice aforethought and discovered that people expected something to happen.


Originally conceived as a two-man, studio-only project, positive reception induced us to play live. Heroes like A. Santos, J. Lorán and A. Iglesias answered the first call to form a rock band. Mr. Santos also became a permanent fixture in our positronic set (trio). Currently, Héctor García & Samuel Martín complement the rock set.

HEALTH FIRST!: This music may have unpredictable effects on your neural patterns. Please disconnect all cognitive functions before listening.

Germán Ponte

The computer guy, the sci-fi nut, the inept keyboardist, the misanthropic dilettante.

When the X-gene and the mutant super-powers failed to make an appearance, G. P. was forced to abandon his dreams of world domination and began to pursue artistic endeavours, soon becoming the best pro on the field of Starting Shit Up & Quitting Halfway Through. Compulsive reader, film buff, half-decent (if verbose) writer, and full-time smart ass, he loves to compose and produce music even when it means interaction with other people.

Pablo Chávarri

The guitar man, the virtuoso, the raving lunatic, the hunter for originality.

Born with a mental disorder that defies diagnosis, P. C. sought treatment in that asylum for incurable freaks known as the Guitar Craft, where his arpeggios, already dangerous for the middle ear ossicles, became incendiary due to the friction of his picking technique, whose relativistic speed showed that Einstein's theories were full of baloney. However, a childish sense of humor made him excel both his peers and his masters.

Alberto Santos

The instrumentalist, the monosyllabic critic, the music encyclopedia, the afro.

The compleat musician in a concentrated capsule —listener, composer, player, DJ, collector, walking database— A. S. works with 12 bands simultaneously and still finds the time to tame his fluffy curls. Easy to interest in exciting projects and quick to bore if unchallenged, he has an eloquent array of minimalistic facial expressions to avoid speech at all costs. He may like it or he may not, but will you ever know?

REMEMBER: They're mostly harmless without microphones and show a positive reaction to flattery. If you need to stall them, BUY THEM DRINKS.
