New Flamenco - Lagartija Nick

Lagartija Nick

While strictly not-flamenco and more of a lo-fi post-punk group like the USA's Sonic Youth (LN take their name from a Bauhaus song), Granadinos Lagartija Nick collaborated with singer Enrique Morente on a latterday flamenco masterpiece, 'Omega', which set various Lorca texts to a mix of electronics, low-slung new wave guitar and impassioned cante jondo. It's still performed occasionally and became an instant nuevo flamenco classic.

Recommended: Lo Imprevisto, Omega, La Guerra de los Mundos (their imaginary soundtrack to the film 'War of the Worlds', a homage to Clash singer-guitarist Joe Strummer)
