Catalogue Note

Often called the Spanish Beatles, Los Brincos were perhaps the most popular Spanish rock band of the 1960's. Formed in 1964, the original lineup included Juan Pardo, Antonio "Junior" Morales, Manuel Gonzalez and Fernando Arbex. This early line up has hits such as Borracho (1965) and Un Sorbito de Champán (1966).

 

By 1970 the group's members had morphed into Manuel Gonzalez,  Fernando Arbex, Oscar Lasprilla  and brothers Enrique (Ricky) and Miguel Morales. They launched an English and Spanish album called Mundo Demonio Carne/World Devil & Body but their first album cover done by Claudio Bravo, depicting the members torsos on the front and back was censored  by the Franco-era Spanish government as being indecent and was replaced by the image of a brain.

 

The present work is the original  drawing for the back of the album.
