I assume this is a play on words of Platero y Yo, which I read years ago. A lot of borrachearía going on ;)

You're right, it is a play on words with Juan Ramón Jiménez's book. 

Platero Y Tú was very popular in the Spanish hard rock scene of the 90s, building on the success of heavy rock bands from the 80s like Barón Rojo (who got some success even out of Spain and recorded in the UK) or Obús. 

Being from the Basque Country (Bilbao) and living through very complicated times there, they kept away from the very politized scene of Rock Radical Vasco and, on the contrary, they offered a good dose of urban rock, with 95% of their lyrics in Spanish and not in Euskera, focused on sex, drugs and rock and roll with a small and contained portion of the classic anti-system pose. 

Singer and leader Fito Cabrales has got even more popular with his new band since the early 2000s, Fito y los Fitipaldis. They have even reached the Top Ten in the Hit Lists from formula radios with a nice mix of pop and rock. He has betrayed his fans from the 90s, though. 😉

Thanks for the explanation. I really have little familiarity with Spanish rock.

Now listening.

Love Belle and Sebastian!

It’s been awhile, but this is a box-set definitely worth revisiting. Excellent booklet, too—screw the Cloud!

Landmark reissue when the 2LP set coame out in the early 70's.  We owe a LOT to that set and Lenny Kaye, as the whole garage rediscovery (one of my great joys) was fueled by it.  Plus it's just a great listen!  And the box set and some of the followup box sets are great, too.   "Children of Nuggets" led me to the whole Paisley Underground scene, which I also love.

A fellow Paisley Underground fanatic here. Have we already talked about the recent 3 x 4 release, on which four of the bands reunited to cover one another’s songs? One of my overall favorites for 2019, to be sure. Re Nuggets, I have the excellent Nuggets II box that draws on the late-60s British scene (bought both of these with an employee discount when I worked at Borders in the late 1990s) and just yesterday was inspired to order a used copy of the San Francisco Nuggets box as well. I’d love to also pick up the Los Angeles set, but it seems scarcer and more expensive. As excited as I am to see Patti Smith tomorrow night, I’ll also feel the need to genuflect before Mr. Kaye on the strength of the original Nuggets compilation alone.
