A burned out neon sign, $27/night, a garbage pile before the door, a blood-stained mattress: Chico Motel. Formed in Berkeley, CA in 1995, the band is now spilt between two continents -- Paris and Washington DC. Influenced by Bach and the Beatles, jazz and metal, Chico Motel plays interncontinental pop-rock music for those who don't take pop too seriously. All songs are written by Paolo Prandoni and Mike Gubser. Band members are Paolo Prandoni (Vocals, Guitar, Bass, Keyboard, Drums), Mike Gubser (Vocals, Keyboard, Trombone, Drums) and, sometimes, Jochen Mann (Uber-guitar) and Edouard Servan Schreiber (Keyboards, Je ne sais quoi).
