Loquillo - Topic

Loquillo en Madrid Play

With this live CD+DVD release at the Teatro Coliseum, located on Madrid's Gran Vía, Loquillo gives his punk rock persona the night off, and shows up instead as the stylish, mature crooner with a passion for the work of poets such as Cesare Pavese, Luis Alberto de Cuenca, or Mario Benedetti. In addition to his musical adaptation of poems, Loquillo includes a few choice covers by the likes of Johnny Cash, Jacques Brel, or Jaime Urrutia. This impeccable concert was filmed in high definition by Óscar Aibar and Manolo Vázquez. ~ Mariano Prunes, Rovi

Balmoral Play

His first release since parting company with his backing band of 30 years, los Trogloditas, Balmoral is the second solo album from Spanish rock singer Jose Maria Sanz, aka Loquillo, following 1999's Nuevo Tragos. Produced by Jaime Stinus, the 2008 release features songs co-written with some of the rock en español scene's most prominent figures, including los Rebeldes' Carlos Segarra, Gabinete Caligari's Jaime Urrutia, and Gabriel Sopeña, alongside a duet with French icon Johnny Hallyday on "Cruzando el Paraise." ~ Jon O'Brien, Rovi

Su Nombre Era el de Todas las Mujeres Play

This second solo release by Spanish rocker Loquillo after he finally disbanded his group of 25 years, the Trogloditas, in 2007 is actually a continuation of his work with composer Gabriel Sopeña, with whom he had made two acclaimed albums in the 1990s adapting poems by authors such as Pablo Neruda, Octavio Paz, and Jorge Luis Borges. Su Nombre Era el de Todas las Mujeres is the third entry in the series, and differs from its predecessors in that it is entirely dedicated to a single author, the controversial contemporary Spanish poet Luis Alberto de Cuenca. The ever ironic Loquillo shares an obvious affinity with Cuenca's writings, and sounds positively inspired in this collection of driving rock tunes arranged and produced by the singer's longtime collaborator Jaime Stinus. The album was released in a CD-plus-book format, including all the texts and illustrations by Fernando Pereira. ~ Mariano Prunes, Rovi
