Supergroup from Madrid formed around 1985 by two musicians with a shared, clear idea of to start a garage rock band. For that purpose, Esteban Hirschfeld (Uruguayan and original member of Los Mockers) and Jimmy García (from Valladolid’s Fallen Idols) didn’t hesitate to enrol members of other established bands such as Ciudad Jardín, Pistone and even Los Enemigos.
These four tracks were released as a maxi-single on the Twins label in 1986. They feature a track written by Hirschfeld (‘Stop’) and three covers in a 60s punk vein (Dylan, Strangeloves and Them), something quite unusual around here at the time. A controversial production by Paul Collins didn’t do justice to the intensity of the live shows the band played during their short life.
The Nativos spontaneously appeared at a time when Madrid’s so-called “Movida” scene was dead and buried, along with other bands such as Sex Museum, Los Enemigos, Los Karstein and many others that were paying attention to the music that was being made in other parts of the world, trying to recover the pure essence of rock & roll.
