BioDios Malos used to be named dios (always lowercase) until Ronnie James Dio recently forced them to change their moniker. From Hawthorne CA, their neighborhood is pretty run down now but, a long time ago, Brian Wilson and the rest of the Beach Boys lived there...so did Greg Ginn and Black Flag. The city has changed a lot since then.
Joel and Kevin Morales are the sons of a one time mariachi singer. The rest of the band, John Paul Caballero, James Cabez DeVaca and Jackie Monzon, are friends from Hawthorne. They began recording their album about a year and a half ago in their bassist's basement(J.P. Cabellero). It is rumored that the funds for their self-titled album were raised by selling bootlegged copies of Smile on ebay.
That’s about all we know. That, and that their debut record is great.
