Biography

Mecano was a pop group from Spain, one of the pioneering music acts for Spanish-language new wave music in the 1980s and 1990s. The group was formed in Madrid after Jose María Cano and Ana Torroja met and started collaborating in the late 1970s, and they were later joined by José María’s brother, Nacho Cano. After getting signed by record label CBS, the group released their first single “Hoy No Me Puedo Levantar” in 1981. They soon released their debut album, the self-titled Mecano, in 1982, which showed off the group’s sophisticated pop stylings. This was followed by ¿Dónde Está el País de las Hadas? (1983) and Ya Viene el Sol (1984), each of which continued to increase the group’s profile across the Spanish-speaking market. In 1986, Mecano released Entre el Cielo y el Suelo, an album that featured a larger, more arena-rock sound. The album was by far Mecano’s biggest commercial hit up to that point, featuring songs such as the smash hit “Hijo de la Luna,” which would also go on to become one of the band’s signature songs. This smash album was followed by Descanso Dominical (1988), which was even more successful than its predecessor, and Aidalai (1991). After years of continued touring, the group took a hiatus in the 1990s. They resurfaced in 1998 with Ana José Nacho, a greatest hits album including 7 new songs. After a successful international tour, Mecano disbanded in 1998.
