Mexican alternative pop/rock pioneer Fobia made their debut with the release of a self-titled album in 1990, featuring "Microbito," the band's first hit, followed by 1991's Mundo Feliz and 1993's Leche. After issuing Amor Chiquito in 1995, original drummer Jorge Amaro decided to leave the act, being replaced by ex-Víctimas del Doctor Cerebro percussionist Jay de la Cueva. In 1997 Fobia returned with a live album called Fobia on Ice, recorded at Mexico City's Metropolitan Theater, Monterrey, and Guadalajara. Fobia disbanded in 1998. Soon, singer Leonardo de Lozanne started a solo career while keyboardist Iñaki Vásquez joined his sister Aurora to produce Aurora y la Academia's debut album. After many years, Fobia decided to regroup, bringing de Lozanne, de la Cueva, Vásquez, and guitarist Paco Huidobro back and adding Cha! on bass. In 2006 they released their first studio album in ten years, and fifth overall, Rosa Venus, on Sony International. ~ Drago Bonacich, Rovi
