Biography[edit]

The band started in 2003 from the now disappeared Cash Converters, with the aim to take part to the Belgian music competition Concours Circuit, led by the organization Court-Circuit (between others, the band Sharko and Hollywood Porn Stars were prize winners of this competition). Malibu Stacy won the final in November 2004 in the Brussels venue Le Botanique.

Following this, the band got a contract with the indie label 62TV Records. At this time, they recorded their second try (the first one being a self-produced demo consisting of 3 songs written in 2004), an EP of 5 titles produced in 2005, and then quickly, their first album entitled G, recorded in Italy under the direction of Francesco Donadello, and out in 2006.

After several other concerts during the winter 2007, Malibu Stacy moved to New York City in April 2008, in the Headgear studio to record a second EP entitled Marathon, out in September of the same year.

Their song "Los Angeles" is featured on the FIFA 07 video game.
