FEW, VERY FEW, PERHAPS NONE OF HIS GENERATION’S COMPANIONS HAS REINVENTED HIMSELF AS LOQUILLO HAS DONE. BECAUSE AFTER ROCKING IN THE SECOND HALF OF THE EIGHTIES WITH SPANISH ROCK CLASSICS LIKE ‘CADILLAC SOLITARIO’, ‘LA MATARE’ OR ‘RITMO DE GARAJE’, CAME NINETY AND THE DIRECTION OF THE WIND CHANGED DRASTICALLY.

BUT THE 56 YEAR OLD BARCELONA ARTIST CAN BOAST OF HAVING MANAGED TO HANDLE THE LEAN YEARS, HAVING BEEN ABLE TO BUILD HIS CAREER AGAIN TO BE RELEVANT TO A WHOLE NEW GENERATION. SO MUCH SO THAT IN SEPTEMBER 2016 FILLED TO OVERFLOW THE PLAZA DE TOROS LAS VENTAS IN MADRID, WHILST STARRING IN ONE OF THE LONGEST TOURS OF THE SEASON (AS IT HAS BEEN DOING YEAR AFTER YEAR FOR SOME TIME).

IN 2016, IN ADDITION, LOQUILLO GAVE TO HIS OWN A NEW ALBUM, ‘VIENTO DEL ESTE’, WHICH CAME FOUR YEARS AFTER ‘LA NAVE DE LOS LOCOS’, HIS PREVIOUS ALBUM WITH TOTALLY UNPRECEDENTED MATERIAL (BETWEEN HALVES, MORE AND MORE PERFORMANCES, A LIVE ALBUM RECORDED IN GRANADA AND A SELF REVIEW OF HIS OWN CATALOG IN ROCKABILLY VERSION).

THE SONGS OF THIS ‘VIENTO DEL ESTE’, ARE THE WORK OF CARLOS SEGARRA, LEIVA, SABINO MENDEZ, GABRIEL SOPENA, IGOR PASKUAL AND MARIO COBO. OF THE LETTERS ARE CHARGED LOQUILLO AND CARLOS ZANON, THEY HAVE ALL SHAPED A “SPANISH ROCK” ALBUM, AS HE ALWAYS LIKES TO REITERATE THAT HE CAN THE ARTIST HIMSELF, WHICH IS ALMOST A GENRE IN ITSELF WITHIN THE NATIONAL MUSICAL PANORAMA.

THUS, THE ‘WIND FROM THE EAST’ WILL BRING LOQUILLO THIS WINTER TO THE UNITED KINGDOM WITHIN THE PROGRAMMING OF ROCK WITHOUT SUBTITLES™, THAT FACES ONE OF THE MOST AMBITIOUS SEASONS OF HIS NINE YEARS OF LIFE, WITH CLASSIC ARTISTS LIKE LOQUILLO, WHO, IN ADDITION TO HIS NEW SONGS, WILL REMEMBER, OF COURSE, THOSE OTHERS WHO ALONG WITH THE TROGLODYTES SOMEHOW TURNED HIM INTO WHAT HE IS TODAY. ICON OF THE SPANISH ROCK.
