The Suburb gives a creative makeover to a 1979 Classic


The Suburb is a one man music machine, with an amazing vocal range, instrumental mastery, showmanship and creative genius, he entertains us with his wonderful reworking of The Buggles classic Video killed the Radiostar.

The Suburb is Spanish Indie Rock Musician Raül Bonilla, he is currently taking part in the one year one song a week challenge from November 2013 to October 2014.

His professional music career started with the release of two albums, Life Is Rara in 1997 and A in 2001 as part of experimental Garage Rock Band Placton.

Placton's Keyboard Player Adri A joined forces with The Suburb and formed hip hop duo 2in-par, who released their self named album 2in-par in 2005, this album achieved success as one of the year's best Spanish records.

He also found time to perform backing vocals for the likes of Macaco and Calima until 2011, it was then he released the Paroxismo EP as Placton where he was the only instrumentalist.

At the age of 16 Raül wanted to have a band so he found four musicians, including a vocalist/guitarist and it was agreed he would be their tambourine player as long as they performed songs he had written. The vocalist/guitarist struggled with singing and playing, so Raül ended up as the band's vocalist.
