From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Los Rodríguez was a rock band composed by two Spaniards and two Argentines, that played during the 90's.



The group was born in 1990 when Ariel Rot and Julián Infante (members of the famous group Tequila) joined Andrés Calamaro, from the band Los Abuelos de la Nada, and Germán Vilella. They started touring around small clubs in Madrid.

In 1991 their first album, Buena Suerte, was released . Its song Mi Enfermedad was a hit in Argentina with Fabiana Cantilo's cover.

But it was their 1993 album Sin Documentos that brought the group to the hit parade. With songs as Dulce condena, Sin documentos, Mi rock perdido, and Me estás atrapando otra vez.

The next album, 1995's Palabras más, palabras menos, was another success. The album contains Mucho Mejor (with Coque Malla), Todavía una canción de amor (with lyrics by Joaquín Sabina, whom they toured with that year) and Milonga del marinero y el capitán.

In 1997 they released Hasta luego, a compilation album, and went on tour. The band broke apart due to economic conflicts.


Their music is a fusion of different styles as flamenco, rumba, bolero, ranchera, milonga, funk, blues, and Rolling Stones-style rock. Calamaro's lyrics are influenced by Joaquín Sabina and Bob Dylan.

Despite their short career, their great success made a revolution in Spanish music market, returning attention to groups that sing in Spanish (and bands with Spanish roots).

The band's song, Sin Documentos, is featured on Guitar Hero II for Xbox 360 as a download extra. Julieta Venegas also sang a cover of the song in her album "Limon y Sal."
