Along with Los Estudiantes, Los Pekenikes were pioneers of Spanish rock and roll at the start of the sixties. Many important Spanish musicians (including most of Los Brincos) have passed through their ranks. By the mid-sixties they had found success by concentrating on instrumentals (initially inspired by The Shadows). By 1969 things were getting a bit more psychedelic, and this is one of just two vocal tracks on their LP Alarma.
CERCA DE LAS ESTRELLAS Buscaré otro mundo lejos del sol en las estrellas. Un lugar donde siempre brille la luz, en las tinieblas. Viviré donde el tiempo no pasará, en las estrellas.
CLOSE TO THE STARS I’ll search for Another world far from the sun In the stars A place Where the light always shines In the darkness I’ll live Where time won’t pass In the stars
