Spanish rock has given us great bands: we have Barricada, Reincidentes, Los Suaves, Extremoduro and, without a doubt, Porretas. Urban rock in the past 30 years can’t be understood without talking about the band from Madrid’s Hortaleza district. Few bands have toured the country as these four musicians and throughout their career they have given us anthem after anthem, all with a taste of beer and the smell of warm amplifier valves and rehearsal space in some big city’s outskirts.
They are still active and their latest record is an homage to some of the spanish music greats from a rock perspective, from Asfalto to Julio Iglesias. No one is safe from a high energy re-reading of their music by Porretas.
