Biography

Los Calzones (the underpants) from Argentina is a a Ska / Rock group which is a follow-up to Los Calzones Rotos (the ragged underpants) started out in Buenos Aires in 1988. Inspired by the like of Madness, Bad Manners, The Specials, The Skatalites and The Selecter at a time when ska was out of fashion.

Nevertheless, the group went on and founded their own label to show their independence. Halfway through1991, Los Calzones Rotos, their debut, appeared with hits like “Ska del Novio” and “Skabaret” which took them massively to the media and to their audience. They made shows everywhere and their first Video-clip “Ska del Novio” was one of the most important in 1992. So, they made tours through the whole country. At the beginning of 1993 they edited their second production called Porrompompero that gave them a bigger audience through new hits such us “Cuidáte la cola”, “Porrompompero” and “Todo lo que duele”. By that time, as they played constantly, they could record a prestigious instrumental track “Anillaco No E´Nesario” which made them different from other groups of the Argentine ska movement.

The sales then were beyond all expectations as they obtained the platinum disc in Argentina and the gold disc in Chile. In 1995, appeared their third album, Jungla Ska.
