VENENO MEXICANO E UM ROCK PSICODÉLICO DE PRIMEIRA LINHA!! SUGERE-SE TOMAR UMA TEQUILA OURO E VIAJAR NESTE VENENO!!
In the era of psychedelic rock and under the influence of American hippies of the late 1960s, a young band from Guadalajara headed by Javier Martin del Campo, formed with the intention of interpreting contemporary popular songs of the era in their own style. Initially, their hobby led them to play at local parties, but the resulting fame soon spread beyond their city. The group won the most call-in votes during a contest organized by a local radio station called "Radio ondas de la alegria" "Waves of Happiness Radio", and earned themselves an audition with an important record label.
Initially reluctant, they signed a contract with Polydor Records, launching their brief but successful foray into the world of rock music. With an original musical concept and creative sense, the group moved to Mexico City, continuing to adapt their urban rhythms and establish a base for their new musical launches. In 1970, they released their first record, containing songs "Nasty Sex" and "Still don't (Not yet)", which quickly shot up the popular charts both locally and worldwide. The head office of Polydor Records sent the group five medals as recognition for their high level of sales in the Americas, United Kingdom, and Europe of their one big hit, "Nasty Sex."
The relative obscurity of the band did not reduce the great impact achieved in those far-off areas. Later, they recorded their second hit, "Shit City," which earned only moderate success compared to their first.
They were invited to perform in the Avandaro festival in 1972, but declined the invitation due to an already very busy schedule. In that year, they took part in the film "La verdadera vocación de Magdalena" "The True Calling of Magdalena", starring singer and actress Angélica María, which more or less seriously addresses the topics that concerned young people of the era.
The members of the group at that time were:
Oscar Rojas (vocals)
Carlos Valle (lead guitar, harmony vocal)
Francisco Martínez Ornelas (bass guitar)
Marco Carrasco (drums)
Javier Martin del Campo (guitar).
