Madre matilda


Madre Matilda started in 1996, when Carlos Salas (guitar) met Pierina Less (vocals), as he and Giorgio Bertolli (drums) decided to form a band. They decide the name of the band as a tribute to Pink Floyd's track "Matilda's Mother". After Juan José Sandoval (bass) completed the band, they spend 1996 rehearsing and demoing several tracks for their first album. They released their first album, named "Madre Matilda", in 1998 under the record label Discos Hispanos, after spending 1997 recording it in "El Techo" studios. Read more on Last.fm
Madre Matilda started in 1996, when Carlos Salas (guitar) met Pierina Less (vocals), as he and Giorgio Bertolli (drums) decided to form a band. They decide the name of the band as a tribute to Pink Floyd's track "Matilda's Mother". After Juan José Sandoval (bass) completed the band, they spend 1996 rehearsing and demoing several tracks for their first album. They released their first album, named "Madre Matilda", in 1998 under the record label Discos Hispanos, after spending 1997 recording it in "El Techo" studios. During those days, the band had the following members: Pierina Less (vocals), Carlos Salas (guitar), Coco Berenz (guitar), Juan José Sandoval (bass), Giorgio Bertolli (drums) y Pamela Contreras (backing vocals). "Viento Stereo", the first single was in heavy rotation on the local radio stations.

The band took some time off after this, mostly because Giorgio Bertolli left the band. He was replaced by Jorge Olazo. In early 1999, the band started working on their second album. They recorded a 10-track demo album to present the project to Sony Music. Madre Matilda's new tracks caught their attention because of their new electro rock style.

Jorge 'Pelo' Madueño (La Liga del Sueño) was in charge of the production and the new sound of the band, but before the recordings started, Coco Berenz and Juan Jóse Sandoval left the band, being replaced by Chisco Ramos and Vitucho Malásquez. "Círculos", the second and most acclaimed album, was succesfully realeased in 2000. "Sin Llorar", the first radio single had an unusual sound, still more mainstream than the previous record and climbed the charts almost inmediately. This album also featured a cover of a traditional peruvian song, called "Regresa", which was considered one of the band's best tracks. That same year Carlos Salas left the band.

In march 2000, they recorded their first video, for the single "Círculos", directed by July Natters and Sergio Paris. The video was set on the desert and featured the members in bizarre costumes. Madre Matilda started a promo tour all over the country. In 2000, the band had only Pierina, Vitucho and Jorge as steady members, and Chisco Ramos as a guest. The track "Manos Blancas" was featured on the soundtrack of "Ciudad de M", the first soundtrack realeased as an album ever for a peruvian film. In 2001 they recorded their second and third (and last) video, first "De Cabeza", a home made film on how to make spaghetti, which reflected the days of the band while on tour, and then "Sin Llorar", a high budget video directed by Eddy Romero, which featured the band performing in an abandoned club.

They performed in several rock festivals all over Lima. In that year also, Pierina Less performed "El Duelo" with the band La Ley, as a special guest in one of their shows. Vitucho Malasquez left the band in 2002. The tracks "Tragando El Polvo" and "Reflejada" were chosen by the director Edgardo Guerra to be featured in the soundtrack of his movie "Muerto de Amor". The last Madre Matilda formation consisted in Pierina Less, Franco Cimmino, Claudio Cabrera and Jorge Olazo. In late 2002, they started writing for their third album, but the band took a break which sadly never ended.

Their last public performance was on the 100% Rock Festival. They never made a farewell tour but the breaking of the band was confirmed by most of the members. Even though the band didn't existed for too long, they are considered as one of the most succesful acts in peruvian music history. After leaving Madre Matilda, Carlos Salas realeased three album as a solo artist, "Bajo El Sol" (2001), "Quién Serás Mañana?" (2004) and "Atardeceres de Efecto Invernadero" (2006). Nowadays, Pierina Less finished working on her much awaited solo album, that will be released in late 2007.
