JUANITA Y LOS FEOS: renew the irreverence

By Garbiñe Jaurrieta. April 28, 2012


In his novel Il Gatopardo, the Italian writer Giuseppe Tomasi di Lampedusa said: "If we want things to stay as they are, things will have to change". This concept could be applied to Juanita y los feos. To continue creating irreverent ground-breaking music but renovating their style. To reinvent without leaving behind their identifying features. To escape from a garage-punk sound to approach a frolicky pop. To recycle without discarding what seems to be their specialty: to enjoy and make their audience enjoy.

The Madrid-based band recently proved this virtue when they released their second LP Pesadilla Adulta (Munster Records, 2011). Echoes of the eighties Spanish music and the pop of Los Pegamoides that leave behind those dirtier first strains assimilated from garage rock bands such as the Headcoats and the versatile Billy Childish. Without falling into comparisons, there is a noticeable difference between that first "Pégame en la disco" and their latest singles.

Now, they substitute the careless and nineties style of their first videos for a meticulous audiovisual image but they don’t give up that characteristic bizarre veil. Change without changing the essence. But just enjoy them with your own eyes.
