Zolo De La Movida

March 20, 2008 at 4:35 pm 3 comments

La Movida Madrileña was the name for the Madrid based Spanish New Wave movement.

It was a rich scene that produced dozens of great bands representing the varied styles of the New Wave. One of the styles La Movida nailed was Zolo, which manifested itself in the mainstream more so than any other New Wave movement globally (with Japan being the possible exception).

I picked out three of my favorite La Movida Zolo hits:

Alaska y Los Pegamoides – Bote de Colon

Mecano –  Maquillaje

Las Chinas – Hombre Salvaje
