The Concretes hail from Stockholm, Sweden. They are playing with borrowed instruments after being the victims of theft outside the Bowery Ballroom in New York.

Gomez took off in the late 90s and everything must have seemed easy. A big label signed them, they won awards and sold records. But their last few CDs for that big label got lost in the shuffle.
