A successful alternative band from Gibraltar, signed by Sony Music, who achieved popularity in Spain. Melon Diesel started playing under the name of Treehouse in the early '90s. The name was changed in 1995, based on a drink served at a Gibraltar bar where the band used to perform. The group moved to London to work with producer Barry Sage, recording La Cuesta de Mr. Bond. "La Cuesta de Mr. Bond" is a Gibraltarian nickname for Flat Bastion Road. The group has now split up but formed two new bands. Taxi being one of them containing frontman Dylan Ferro as well as other Melon Diesel members, which are touring and popular in Spain. The remaining members formed Area 52 which are still performing in the local circuit of Gibraltar with much success. http://www.myspace.com/area52x1 Read more on Last.fm.
