Back to line-up


Second stage

Saturday 09 September 2023

When a couple of other musical projects had run their course, Ian began to work on some songs with Helena, who he had heard singing at a friend’s party. The product was the first Tiger Mendoza release “The Hope Sick EP” released in September 2009 which blended lo-fi pop with a taste for breaks and electronica.

Since then line up has shifted from a band to more of a solo project lead by Ian De Quadros and featuring a variety of different guests and has gone on to support DJ Shadow, AK DK and appearances such as Oxford’s Common People and Reading’s Are You Listening, sharing bills with acts as diverse as The Jacksons and Idles.

Ian is also a prolific producer and remixer for other artists including Public Enemy and DJ
