One Trick Pony were born in Zurich, Switzerland in 2016, as the creative brainchild of Caccia Schiacciatore (Guitar, Synths, and Drums) and Captain Bitrage (Bass, Synths, and Drums), an artistic child which suffers from severe Attention Deficit Disorder and musical Tourette’s syndrome.
The group was conceived by the two musicians after years of abortive attempts at finding a creative outlet for their musically adventurous ideas, an enterprise which dates as far back as 1994, when they first formed a band together. While they had remained active in the world of music throughout the years, with Roberto playing guitar for metal group No Brain and Mark becoming a member of alternative metal bands Aggressive Sound Painters and Labia (all from Zurich, Switzerland), none of these ventures were able to express their eclectic musical tastes in
full, hence One Trick Pony were brought to life. Containing in their DNA such disparate musical strains
as disco, post-punk, thrash-metal, electro, bossa nova and the irreverent use of sampled voices and
sounds, the duo nevertheless also display a keen ear for the infectious pop hook throughout their work.
All these elements are pulled together and woven into an intricate tapestry, which mirrors the
hypertextual reality of living in the Now, where every moment in space and time is just a click away.
