Los Campesinos! are an indie pop band which formed in Cardiff, Wales, United Kingdom in 2006. The band consists of Gareth Campesinos! (vocals, glockenspiel, keyboards), Kim Campesinos! (vocals, piccolo, harmonium), Tom Campesinos! (guitar, vocals, keyboards), Neil Campesinos! (guitar), Ellen Campesinos! (bass, vocals), Harriet Campesinos! (violin, keyboards, vocals) and Ollie Campesinos! (drums). Aleksandra Campesinos! (vocals, keyboards, glockenspiel) left the band in 2009 to focus on her study. She was replaced by Gareth’s sister Kim in September 2009. Robert Taylor (guitar, keyboards, glockenspiel), who performs solo as Sparky Deathcap, is the semi-official ninth Campesinos! – the band compares his role in the band to the one Bob Nastanovich had in Pavement. The band’s name translates to “The Peasants” (or “The Farmers”) in Spanish.The band performed their first gig in May 2006 at a student union club night, and went on to play a number of increasingly well-received gigs around Cardiff. An early demo was recorded featuring the songs PlayDeath To Los Campesinos!, PlayIt Started With a Mixx, PlaySweet Dreams, Sweet Cheeks, and live favourite PlayYou! Me! Dancing!. The songs were posted on the internet, bolstering the popularity established by their energetic live shows and earning them airplay on Beth & Huw’s evening show on BBC Radio 1 Wales. The band’s reputation continued to grow, and in August 2006 landed them a slot supporting Canadian supergroup Broken Social Scene.
