BIO 

SECRET AGENT - Originally based in the vibrant hub of Mexico City and recently relocated to Chicago, emerge as a captivating 'Psy Spy Instro Surf' trio, weaving sonic tapestries that traverse borders and captivate audiences far and wide after touring USA, Mexico and Puerto Rico.  

 

With a penchant for breaking musical barriers, RICK DELIZ, (Guitar), joins forces with RACK AGUIRRE (Bass), original drummer ALIS EMERSON, and recording guest JUAN J. COVARRUBIAS (Synths). Together, they concoct a mesmerizing fusion of classic '60s Surf Rock, Post-Punk vibes, and the distant twang of Rockabilly, all steeped in the intrigue of SPY films and the rugged allure of Spaghetti Westerns.

 

Their journey unfolds with PEDRO PISTOLA PIÑATA PARTY (EP 2017), a sonic escapade produced by  producer Scott Hackwith (Ramones / Spiritualized), recorded in Los Angeles, accompanied by the animated allure of the 'Peter Gunn Theme' music video crafted by Tío Alex (Los Esquizitos). 

 

MATA HARI (EP 2019) further illuminates their musical odyssey, featuring original vocal collaborations in Spanish with luminaries such as Vince (Rebel Cats), Marcela Viejo (Quiero Club), Carlos Ann (Bushido) plus a long term alliance with graphic artist Pedro García (Stoner Graphics).

 

In 2020, Double Crown Records immortalized both their EPs in CD format: A PAIR OF ACES, meticulously mastered by the illustrious Grammy toting Gavin Lurssen (Billy Idol / Reverend Horton Heat). 

 

Their evolution takes center stage with MOROS EN LA COSTA (Album 2021), recorded between Puerto Rico and Mexico City, where chameleon rhythms effortlessly shift from down-and-dirty shimmery to crux-riding licks, featuring guest vocalist Daniel Gutiérrez (La Gusana Ciega) with producers D'Jeleu Javier and 'Crunchy' López (Lost Acapulco).

 

IN 2023 they release LOOSE LIPS SINK SHIPS (EP 2023), recorded, mixed and mastered by Dave Klein (Agent Orange / The Ghastly Ones) in Los Angeles, and released on Triple Agent Records. It features an illustrious lineup of special guests, including Robert López (El Vez), Priscilla Escobar, and Dafne Carballo (Descartes A Kant) and Rick debuts on Lead Vocals on 3 songs.

 

In 2024 they welcome new drummer HEATHER VRSEK and in July 5th 2024 they release GOING (INSTRO) MENTAL'- a instrumental album collection of all their past vocal songs plus a surprise bonus track.
