*EXPLICIT* Spain: Contemporary musicians need sex

Erotic, sensual and sexy imagery is commonplace in contemporary music videos but independent Spanish band 'Mei Ming' have gone a step further by creating an intentionally controversial and provocative video featuring a couple having explicit sex together.

Juan Ramos, Mei Ming musician, composer and lyricist, has intentionally used explicit sex scenes in his new video 'Take Me As I Am' to lure the public... Ruptly have obtained exclusive rights for the 'making-of' this video.

Ramos said in an interview Thursday: "Some actors are pretending to be the band, Mei Ming. They stop playing to get known with another type of demand, to get naked and have explicit sex." On the purpose of the video, he explained, "The purpose is to develop a critique, than concern us directly. Sex is a symbol of what an artist needs to survive."

He also spoke of the complications of being an independent musician in Spain, "The situation in Spain is complicated. There are fantastic musicians everywhere but there are not mechanisms to be publicised. Starting from the beginning is very complicated."

Independent Spanish band Mei Ming, meaning 'nameless' in Chinese, began their career early in 2008 with the release of their first album 'El mar se agita' (The Sea Waves). Since then, Mei Ming have progressed by recording and publishing their new tracks independently and have continuously toured. Mei Ming say that, 'many labels might fit Mei Ming, but not labeling them fits them even better'.
