Possibly the best Spanish pop band of the sixties

"Some people think there was nothing like a "sixties revolution" in Spain. Well, there wasn't actually. BUT it must be admitted there was half a dozen of bands which sounded, to say the least, quite fine. Of course, all of them were so very influenced by British explosion (The Beatles in particular) that it is now quite difficult to identify many aspects of creativity in their sound.
Well, that is not the case of Los Brincos. They were extremely original (they were the first to fuse some elements of Spanish traditional music -specially of flamenco- and pop) and, unlike other bands at the time, which were specialized in covering international hits, they used to write their own songs. And, believe me, they did it very well.
It might be a bit of a handicap to some of you listening to Spanish music. Don't panic. If you really are a sixties music fan, I'm sure you will like Los Brincos. It may be a good idea to try their English attempts first (The train, I try to find...) and, after that, continue with the Spanish stuff (El pasaporte, Nadie te quiere ya, Flamenco, being my favourites).
I hope you enjoy it, anyway. After all, they were the best Spanish pop band of the sixties."

"Los Brincos were a Spanish band from the 1960s that sang mostly about love. Many people compare them to the Beatles, but they are their own band with their own sound. My favrite songs are Un Sorbito De Champange, Nadie Te Quiere Ya, a really pretty but sad song, and A Mi Con Esas, which sounds more Spanish. Los Brincos eran uno de los mejores grupos musicales españoles."
