Telegrama - Chica Del Metro (1982)

b/w - Juando Sucio (Playing Dirty)

Great lone 45 from this Catalonian (Llefià in Badalona) Mod /powerpop band

Berto Rodriguez (voc bass)
José Belmonte (lead guitar)
Juan Antonio (rhythm guitar)
Jordi Miró (drums)

The band began in 1980 (all members being 18 & at the Institute of Eugeni D'Ors, Badalona). They gigged constantly though 1981 with the likes of The Sprays, Brighton 64 & Los Rápidos

March '82 : the record was the 1st release for the independent record label Flor Y Nata (initially a 1000 print run) although the video clip wasn't recorded for "Pista Libre de TVE" until May in Madrid.
July saw them begining their Mandatory Army sevice with a short time together in December to record some demos & then a drift in musical taste led them to disband.

The Sleeve was designed by Manolo Garcia from Los Rápidos

Chica Del Metro can be found on Powerpearls 2
