Sumo (band)

Sumo was a 1980s Music group from Argentina.

The first incarnation of Sumo played mostly around Prodan's neighborhood of Hurlingham, Buenos Aires province, and in Cafe Einstein. Nuttal returned to England when the Falklands war started, so Sokol took on the drums, and Diego Arnedo joined on bass. Sax player (and later media star) Roberto Pettinato was a frequent guest; he later joined the band in full.

Because they sang mostly in English, Sumo did not enjoy the extensive airplay given to Argentine bands in the wake of the war. Nevertheless, it became a pillar of the underground scene together with Patricio Rey y sus Redonditos de Ricota and Los Violadores.
