Hombres G is the debut album released by Spanish rock band Hombres G in 1985.[1][2][3]

History[edit]

Hombres G's original label, Lollipop, was unable to further support the band in early 1984.[4]

At that time, Ricardo Chirinos, lead singer of Pistones, told Paco Martín that Hombres G would be present at Radio España for an interview regarding one of their concerts at Rock-Ola. Paco had just established a new label, Twins, and signed a contract with the band after attending one of their concerts.[5]

Hombres G began recording their new album two weeks later at Estudios Trak. The band recorded "Venezia", a new version of the previous single, and the soon-to-be hit, "Devuélveme a mi chica". Among the album's ballads was a cover of Alice Cooper's "I Never Cry", which they named "No lloraré". They also adapted Vladimir Cosma's song "Reality" from the motion picture, La Boum, and called it "Sin ti". [6]

Twins initial release attempts weren't very successful and Pepe Escribano, a partner of Paco Martín, decided to leave the company. Weeks later, however, Hombres G broke into the mainstream and sales of the album leaped.[7]

Content[edit]

In 2010, the following statement appeared on HombresG.Net, referring to the controversial content of the song "Matar a Castro": "If Fidel hears me, please know that I'm sorry, that even though I don't like him, I don't have an interest for his death, his or anyone's; that was a youth's naivety. - David Summers" [8]
