The others turned on Manu, and when they refused to let him keep the name Mano Negra to use for another outfit, he thought his career was over. And he had also split up with his long-term girlfriend.
He spent the next three years on an extended "lost weekend", pinballing around the world, traveling throughout South America and to west Africa, depressed and often suicidal. For three years, between and , he was missing-in-action, a nomad playing the bars of Rio and Tijuana, experimenting with peyote in Mexico City, entertaining the children of insurgents in Chiapas in Mexico. A supporter of the Zapatistas, he went on to sample the voice of the charismatic activist Subcommandante Marcos on Clandestino.
Only following a motorbike ride from Paris to the greenness of Galicia with his father, the writer Ramon Chao, did he slowly return to sanity. But all the time, he had also been writing songs.
It was pure therapy. Back in Paris he met a sympathetic musical co-pilot called Renaud Letang , and the duo sifted through scores of songs before settling on the tracks that became Clandestino. Manu at the time was fascinated by electronica, and the first version was heavy with dance beats.

But one day, Letang's computer got a bug which stripped out most of the electronics and drums, leaving the music spare, naked and beautiful, like an old painting cleaned of years of dirt to reveal a masterpiece.

Most music professionals thought the album would sell a few thousand to Mano Negra fans, although its lack of rock energy might alienate them. There was no band to promote the album, it didn't fit into radio station formats, and mainstream broadcasters used the drugs references on tracks like Welcome to Tijuana as an excuse not to play it. Manu felt it was his swansong, and it initially looked that way, reaching No 19 in the French charts before it stalled.
But Virgin's low-key marketing of the album, with its anti-consumerist aura, let fans discover it for themselves. It initially became the soundtrack of choice for backpackers in hip beach destinations like Koh Samui in Thailand and Puerto Escondido in Mexico — its bitter-sweet quality perfect for the moment the sun goes down.
