Hombres Imposible

Veggie lasagne and cheap red wine, huh?
OK, we're not vegetarians - it was just on offer.


How did the name Hombrés Imposible come about?
That's down to Nick Mocassa our drummer.

'Compay Segundo' is a legendary album of Cuban origin in his possession and Hombr
és Imposible is a line from a track on the album.

It translates into Impossible Men - quite appropriate really!

What's the name of the track you've chosen to demo?
'Social butterfly' is the chosen track. It's the first track on our new E.P. and gives a taster, musically, of what we're about. Basically it's having loads going on and coping with the stresses and strains of everyday life. Working to exist! All work and no play makes Matt a dull boy!

Matt....?
Matt Sims. The man up front, former model and exiled 'Taff'. Lives music, sleeps with his guitar in a tent in a garden somewhere in Totnes.

Taking a break between songs

Then there's Andy Bullock the dude with a bass guitar and natty dreads trapped with a Velcro pad! Can be seen semi-naked at a gig near you!

Finally Nick Mocassa. The ladies' man. International hombré and Grohl lookalike.
Nick's been all over the world drumming and making out with the ladies. He has a passion for extreme sports so things can get a bit wild!

The current music scene seems to be made up of manufactured bands, where does that leave you?
It's still a tough market to break into, with not too many opportunities around.

Although there is a healthy amount of bands out there, due to pop culture and those manufactured groups being forced on youth today, the guitar band is still the underdog.......

Our time will come!!


What are the highs and lows of living in Devon?
The best has to be its location on the coast: surf, sand and sometimes sun! Unfortunately the downside is lack of entertainment licences, bad roads and too many caravans. There isn't enough industry interest down here either, really, which is a shame 'coz there are some great bands out there.

And what about the future....?
We all share the same view on this one. To perform, write and record and to be successful doing what we enjoy. We have big plans for the future and because we all have the same goals in sight, with determination, motivation and a bit of luck we can achieve them.
