Mes Quins


Twas a cold winter day in 2008, when Ovidiu Chihaia and Silviu Gherman decided to start up a band - Mes Quins, a synth-pop effort with disco overtones based in Bucharest, Romania. In his youth, Chihaia, a precocious guitar-player, had been part of various underground Bucharest acts (Pure, Guillotines and Hotel Fetish), thus enriching the band with valuable showbiz know-how, a skill that Gherman didn't have. Besides a passion for electronic sounds, Gherman had been acting in various TV commercials and writing books. Read more on Last.fm
Twas a cold winter day in 2008, when Ovidiu Chihaia and Silviu Gherman decided to start up a band - Mes Quins, a synth-pop effort with disco overtones based in Bucharest, Romania. In his youth, Chihaia, a precocious guitar-player, had been part of various underground Bucharest acts (Pure, Guillotines and Hotel Fetish), thus enriching the band with valuable showbiz know-how, a skill that Gherman didn't have. Besides a passion for electronic sounds, Gherman had been acting in various TV commercials and writing books. In fact, Mes Quins' very first concert was at a release party for Gherman's second book. Following such an explosive debut, gigs came and went rapidly for Mes Quins, until the two of them lost count and in the haze of such success hired a bass player (Gina Teslaru) and a drummer (Ovidiu Rusu).

They're like family now. In 2009, Mes Quins played gigs in most Bucharest clubs, opened for Namosh, Handsome Furs, Noblesse Oblige and Kissogram, shocking the audience on every occasion with their overtly sexual image and a total lack of style to support it. They say their sound is like a swear word coming from a wise old man listening to Kraftwerk. A music video for the band's debut single, "In The Land Of The Dead" (2009), directed by Miruna Boruzescu, was on rotation on the Romanian MTV, last year. Berlin band Stereonucleose remixed Mes Quins' "Elefteria", and Edouard Von Shaeke of Sons des Disco recently covered "Le paravent de ton amour". Mes Quins' debut album, mixed by Dan Serbanescu (Divine Muzak, The Pixels) is right around the corner. The first single, "Printeso", is currently featured in Romanian radio airplay charts.
