Pipas are Lupe Núñez-Fernandez and Mark Powell (if a duo can be considered a band or a gang, then they are). They formed in London, UK around the year 2000 but now they live separated by an ocean: Lupe in Madrid and Mark in Brooklyn. But despite this continue to play, record and tour. Short, bittersweet... With four albums, a couple of singles, numerous compilation appearances and a spot of international touring in the past three years, they've set a reckless pace for themselves! They have a certain disregard for the rigours and cliches of being a band.
