The five-piece from Gijón - Cova de Silva, Tito Pintado, Pedro Vigil, David Guardado, Juan Carlos Fernández - looked towards English band Felt and Swingin' London to choose their name, but their songs contained The Jesus & Mary Chain's unhealthy echo and reverb, The Pastels' candour and Sonic Youth's passion for noise. Their technical limitations never compromised their voracious desire to express, which combined sudden outbursts with sweetness. Instead of filling in the lyrics dossier with some run-of-the-mill content or turning to the precarious English learned during Spanish high school, the band assumed the textual void and transformed it into a melodic slang which became an identifying mark. No obligations. No conventions. A clear track. They didn't have anything specific to say, but their songs told us many things.
