Ever since knowing each other in Valencia, Venezuela, Andres Benitez and Guillermo Pinochet started playing music together during their teens. Both formed the garage punk band The Schwaggers in 2008 and by 2013 the band would have 3 EPs and a couple of singles to their name. Various live shows as well as radio and TV appearances in both Mexico and Venezuela were also apparent throughout this time.

The band would later cease to exist leaving behind a bit of a cult following in both of its home towns: Monterrey, Mexico and Valencia, Venezuela. In 2016 though, Pinochet and Benitez were able to get back together in Monterrey, Mexico to form a new band called Mala Mía.

This time they would be joined by Eduardo Benitez on bass as well as Roberto Martinez on drums. As a result the four have written and recorded a new album which they plan on releasing this year called “Úrsula”.
