los Punqs de España, 1978

In 1978 Spanish recording company Dial decide to cash in on the new punk music coming out of the US and UK. Rather than trying to find their own indigenous punk rockers (or Spanish-speaking bands from other countries like Mexico, Venezuela, and Argentina) they’d just have their (non-English speaking) studio musicians imitate what the Sex Pistols sounded like to them.

The resulting ‘band’ was Los Punk Rockers and their album of Pistols’ covers is Los Exitos de Sex Pistols.

I barely made it through those three but if your appetite has been whetted for more, the entire album has been posted on Youtube by pesado766. He has a pretty cool set list on his channel of modern Spanish language punk bands.
