The Mexican Erk Aicrag (lyrics & vocals) and Racso Agroyam (programming) two angry survivors of the physical and mental violence rising daily on the streets of Mexico City, founded the electro band “Hocico”in 1993.
A spider with six legs, which has a H on its back, is the symbol of the both cousins who share their musical experiences
and interests from their childhood. With a Yamaha keyboard Racso began at the age of 15 to experiment.
The correct pronunciation of the name is: “Osziko”. That means mouth or jaws. “Hocico” is a pretty aggressive word. In Mexico it has an offending affect, it’s a swearword, like a kind of attack.
“We won’t change something or someone. The people should find out alone. We only want to show our personal point of view. If they agree, good, if not, it’s good too. It’s better if people think about that themselves.” HOCICO
Hardwire originally formed in 1999 by: Michael Marsh and Ryan Hutman. The band has created and refined a unique sound of their own with musical influences by: Rammstein, Die Krupps, Nitzer Ebb, Ministry, Hanzel ünd Gretyl, KMFDM and Fear Factory. Revised in 2006, Jonah Foree of Ikonoklast joins on Guitar and Xiån Austin (formerly of Alter Der Ruine) joins on Drums and Synths making the lineup as it is today.
Hardwire scored the music for the motion pictures “The Great American Snuff Film” in 2006 and “Death of a Ghost Hunter” in 2008. The band signed to Glow:Room Records in 2008 and released the EP/Remix album “KONFLICT” that featured new material + remixes by: Die Krupps, Angelspit, X-Fusion, En Esch of Slick Idiot, Collapsed System, Kreign, Caustic and C/A/T.
In 2011 Hardwire signs to German label Danse Macabre Records and will release the new album titled: “Insurrection” in Europe and the U.S.
Over the past decade, the band has performed relentlessly throughout cities across the U.S. with acts such as: Fear Factory, Front Line Assembly, Dismantled, Cyanotic, Hocico, Spetsnaz, VNV Nation, Project Pitchfork, Ayria, My Life with the Thrill Kill Kult, Obscenity Trial, Slick Idiot, Imperative Reaction, Chemlab, Everything Goes Cold, Hanzel ünd Gretyl, Alter Der Ruine, 16 Volt, and Lenny Dee.
