A concert effort under his own auspices Suburban Bohemia in 1993 published his first musical production titled Shadows in the Garden. It was released under the label of First Generation Records.

In this album are early versions of the songs “In the Garden”, “Peces e Iguanas”, “I saw you” and five subjects; the original released on cassette contains only eight songs.

In 1994 Bohemia integrates the Peruvian Alvaro Rodriguez on keyboards and guitar. That same year First Generation Records in view the growing demand, decided to publish a version of Shadows in the Garden on compact disc. In this new edition, two new tracks “God is alien” and “Del-end” were included.

Bohemia live appearances planned in a totally logical and empirical due to the absence of a scene and event production companies to take charge to ensure this work.

However acceptance and convening power of the band grew exponentially, with a surprise for the ears conservatives of the time and a challenge for new sponsors interested in promoting their brands and concepts.

In 1995 suburban bohemians traveled to the American city of Miami, Florida, to record and produce his next record plate. They sponsored under the record label recorded RadioVox issues that shaped his second album A thousand words with his teeth.

With this production had the opportunity to expose and debuting beyond the Central American borders. The song “Peces e iguanas” managed to position itself as a favorite in many radio and came to sound in places you never thought the band. So Bohemia was immersed in an intense task of tours and presentations in Guatemala, Central America, Puerto Rico and other cities within the United States. For personal reasons in 1996 Alex Lobos relieves drumsticks other guests batteries from the side.

You could say that the viewer’s eye in 1997 Suburban Bohemia was at an apex of his career. His records sold well appeared, demand for the band on stage was getting bigger. However Bohemia succumbed to product crisis and the lack of guidance received little support from record labels; Bohemia stage and let their members go their separate ways.

The distancing of the band lasted for two years, and in 1999 the Bohemians decided to meet for a reunion concert. At the same time, under the title of Remixes and the emergence of the circumstances RadioVox decided to publish an album where electronic versions of familiar songs of Bohemia were included. These versions were remixed by Juancarlos Barrios during the recess of the band.

The reunion concert was held in the old Plaza de Toros in the city of Guatemala and to the surprise of the group organizers and the event broke attendance records far exceeding all expectations. This led back to the Bohemians to go ahead and projected to produce a new album.

With proceeds from the concert decided to withdraw one season to Madrid, Spain, in order to live together again as a band and into the musical styles that flowed through those places. In this process Juancarlos decided to leave the group and regroup in Guatemala Bohemians agreed to go ahead with the project.

Unfortunately piracy was that captured the sales of the discs leaving the skinny and helpless to keep the project company and raise it to a higher level. Bohemia continued playing steadily in Guatemala, but in early 2004 were faced with a similar to the 97 crisis; the band decided to break so that each of its members had time to stabilize your personal life.
