Biography

San Sebastian, Spain (1984 – present)

Duncan Dhu were a group of the 19. The group was founded in San Sebastian, Spain in 1984 by singer Mikel Erentxun (Aristogatos), and Diego Vasallo, and Juan Ramón Viles (Los Dalton). The name Duncan Dhu comes from the book “Kidnapped: The adventures of David Balfour” by Robert Louis Stevenson where there is a character named Duncan Dhu, who is a lover of music.

Their style was based on an and simple pop-rock with a touch of in great contrast with the more radical rock played in the area at the time. After being hired by ‘Grabaciones Accidentales, S.A.’ they contributed with two songs (Mi Amor and Bésame Mucho) to the new bands compilation La única alternativa (The Only Alternative).

In 1985 they recorded their first album, Por Tierras Escocesas (Around Scottish Lands), and Canciones (Songs) a year later, both produced by Paco Trinidad. The songs were immediately successful and gave them big popularity. After even more successful El Grito del Tiempo (The Cry of Time, 1984) and Grabaciones Olvidadas (Forgotten Recordings, a compilation of B-Sides, 1989) they became a duo and recorded the double album Autobiografía (Autobiography), with collaborations by Black and Sam Brown among others. They later also had several hits such as “Esos Ojos Negros” (“Those Black Eyes”). They finally came to a close as a band with their final cd, “Crepúsculo Y Crudités” (Sunset and Crudités [1]) which was more orchestrated and softer than their older music.

    I got into this lot via Crepuscule in the late 80s. 'Amarga' featuring Colin Vearncombe is just lovely. En Algun Lugar and Tarda De Fiesta are also rather special...
