Biography[edit]

Iñaki Antón González was born on 3 August 1964 in Bilbao.[1] He spent his youth at Zabala (Bilbao), where he met his Platero y Tú bandmates. He started with classical music learning piano. At 14 or 15 years old started to listen to classic rock bands such as Deep Purple or Status Quo and at 17 or 18 he learned to play guitar self-taught. He started playing with Juantxu Olano in a band called Ke and they recorded a four songs demo tape.[2] In 1989 Antón joined Juantxu, Jesús García and Fito Cabrales and they formed Platero y Tú. He also started a collaboration with the band Extremoduro and from 1996 he joined them too. In 2001 Antón, Fito and Roberto Iniesta formed the supergroup Extrechinato y Tú along with poet Manolo Chinato. The following year, Fito gave an interview to the press and he confirmed that he left Platero y Tú, and consequently the group disbanded.[3] He created the record label Muxik along with Robe in 2006. Antón also formed another band called Inconscientes that year and released a studio album in 2007 under his own label, Muxik.
