Kaka de Luxe - Las Canciones Malditas (1983)
Kaka de Luxe was a punk group formed in Madrid in 1977 which broke up in 1978. Comprised of key figures such as Carlos Berlanga, Olvido Gara, Nacho Canut, Manolo Campoamor, Enrique Sierra, Fernando Márquez and Pablo Martínez, Kaka de Luxe went on to become the predecessors of the punk rock and new wave scene of Madrid which was part of "La Movida Madrileña". "La Movida" was a sociocultural movement that took place in Madrid during the first ten years after the death of Francisco Franco.
This album is a collection of Kaka de Luxe's recordings and it was released some years after they broke up. Manolo Campoamor went on to become a plastic artist, Olvido Gara (Alaska), Carlos Berlanga and Nacho Canut formed Alaska y los Pegamoides, Fernando Márquez played in Paraíso and La Mode and Enrique Sierra became part of Radio Futura. Later on, Nacho Canut joined Paralisis Permanente, a band in which ex-Alaska y los Pegamoides members Eduardo Benavente and Ana Curra also played.
