la casa azul Tan Simple Como el Amor (numbered LP, £18.95)label: elefant
One of two La Caza Azul titles being issued on vinyl as part of Elefant Records' series of 25th anniversary reissues. Although presented as a five piece band, La Casa Azul was in reality the work of one man, Guille Milkyway, who combined his Beach Boys influences with that of European pop groups such as Abba. The five members appear in the band's distinctive retro videos, but live and on record the music was all performed by Guille. La Casa Azul rose from early indie pop obscurity to the Spanish top 40, and "La Revolucion Sexual" became Elefant Records' most successful release to date, after narrowly missing the nomination for the Spanish entry to the Eurovision Song Contest. Unavailable on vinyl for many years. Limited edition of 1000 copies, with digital download.
