A) The Ugly Creatures ´Creatures of The Earth´ B) The Ugly Creatures ´Exit To Artist Exist´ The Ugly Creatures (by Baby Doeseb) The band Ugly Creatures was formed as a high school musical outfit at the Martin Luther High School, near Okombahe, a small settlement about 70km west of Omaruru in Namibia in 1971. Interests in music surfaced strong as the entire founding members of the group attended the Martin Luther High School. The band featured in its founding casts, Joni Adams (vocals), August !Uiseb (vocals), Ben Togolo !Naobeb (drums), Moses !Ome (drums), Axali J Doeseb (guitar), Jefta !Noabeb (guitar), Emil Keister (keyboards) and Dantago N !Hoabeb (Bass). Musically things started to move in the right direction and the school band soon started jamming in the city and towns during school holidays, doing gigs on main halls and gospel music on Sundays in Lutheran churches around Namibia. . By mid 70´s the Ugly Creatures had garnered a well-deserved reputation as the premier local band. By then the Band formation was changed, more founding members gave way to styled players and the Ugly Creatures sound was born featuring Axali Doeseb, Baby Doeseb, Elvis Afrikaner, Jefta !Noabeb, Nicro !Hoabeb, Joni Adams and Jomo !Haoseb. The band started to work on their own compositions and three albums, Generation, !Nosa !Keis (Gospel) and The Ugly Creatures were released. Axali Doeseb and Joni Adams were the main songwriters for the group and at a later stage, Baby Doesebalso added his talent. Some tracks were topping the local top 20 programs on black radio stations. Tracks like ´//Khowa am dao-amte´(Creatures) and ´Eyes of ice´(Generation) were banned from the local stations. Top hits such as Shirley, Creatures of the Earth, Not Tonight, Sas xa ≠aihase, Friends of Mine, Give your Heart and !Erere had the longest standing on the local radio stations, out lasting imports. The lack of a Recording company and music promoters, together with the inexperience of the band members themselves, contributed towards the band not earning much from their recordings Their songs may have been popular but record sales were not. In the late 70´s, the Late Thlabanello and Tjongarero took the Band under their wings as the SWAPO Party band. The playing field was broadened, more gigs and more appearances at the SWAPO Party Rallies, the result was the ´Peoples Band´, but the name Ugly Creatures remained with the band throughout though. This combination also cost the band dearly. Being an up-front Band for a banned political party led to a stand-off with the South African rulers and their dreams of reaching out internationally were dash. No band never would been awarded a passport to leave the country. Over the years some members left for further education, some got job transfers outside Windhoek, some died, etc. and the distinct style, performance, sophisticated sound known and appreciated by the Namibians started to decline. The line-up on the Creatures of the Earth album that was recorded in 1978 in Johannesburg, South Africa was: Joni Adams(lead vocals/saxophone), Axali Doeseb – (keyboards/vocals) Peter L. Karon (manager), Baby Doeseb (lead guitar/vocals), Elvis Afrikaner (rhythm guitar/vocals), Jomo !Haoseb (drums/vocals) and Jephta !Noabeb (Bass guitar/vocals).

(Sleazy Records) - (Sleazy Records) Mario Cobo has managed to carve out a musical career seemingly unattainable for a musician born in Barcelona. Chopping stone. Test after test. Concert after concert. With an impeccable attitude from his first live appearance, in 1994, until the last one, probably yesterday. Because Cobo has not stopped playing in all these years. Either with Nu-Niles, his usual band, with which he edited up to 6 LPs and several 7inchs. The band that took to him to turn by all Europe and the United States until its dissolution, this same year, with a splendid album of homonymous title. A background that shapes his reputation as a guitarist and composer within the international roots music scene. With songs edited in Germany, Japan, Spain, Sweden, Holland and the United States. That has made Cobo a renowned musician, an aspect in which they have much to do other projects such as The Lazy Jumpers, which between 2003 and 2008 recorded three albums with his name, and two more as a band of Little Rachel and Mitch Woods. He also was one of Kim Lenz´s Jaguars between 2010 and 2012 and played performances as a member of the groups of Sonny Burgess and Dj Fontana (drummer Elvis), Billy Lee Riley, Janis Martin, Joe Clay Glen Glenn or Dale Hawkins. But now all that is history, like the Nu-Niles. A beautiful story that resurfaced this year 2015 to edit together with Loquillo ´Code Rocker´ (DRO / Warner), produced by Mario with Josu Garcia, placed in the number 1 sales in Spain and make a thrilling tour while exclusive of 12 dates in a month throughout the state. Cobo goes ahead with the Mambo Jambo, a whirlwind of instrumental rhythm & blues formed with the saxophone master Dani Nel.lo (Rebels, Nel.lo and La Banda del Zoco), his partner in innumerable projects Ivan Kovacevic (Nu-Niles) and the magician of the drumsticks Anton Jarl. With them and three LP´s plus several singles have conquered the hearts of the public and also of the critics, who does not stop giving praise to the band. Another of his projects is the Western Swing band Los Locos del Oeste and his crazy country jazz where he deals between the guitar, voice and steel guitar with which he occupies the little free time he has left when he is not touring with Mambo Jambo or working in various productions.
