Their most recognizable hit was “Fai un sol de carallo” (1986), a folk inflected politic-danceable rock song. They always sang in Galician language, claiming the use of this endangered idiom all over Spain. In fact, their hit “Rockin’ Chair” was the only song recorded in a non-Galician language (English). Their infuences ranged from funk, caribean, african and classic rock music to traditional Galician folk songs and period Hip Hop of wich were considered pioneers in Spain. The singing technique of Reixa was similar to that of the Old School rappers, maybe because he never was taught to sing. Other famous songs were, among others, “Galicia sitio distinto” and “Galicia Express”, criticizing the state of Galicia with surreal lyrics.
Their 1990 album “Jei” (he title song parodying the form of singing of Julio Iglesias) was critically acclaimed and was declard the best national album of the year by Rockdelux magazine.
