Los Delinqüentes

Spanish flamenco fusion group Los Delinqüentes made their album debut in 2001 and later overcame the death of a founding bandmember. The comeback album Bienvenidos a la Época Iconoclasta (2009) was their most popular to date, nearly topping the Spanish charts. Founded in 1998 in Jerez de la Frontera, Cádiz, Spain, the group was originally a duo comprised of teenagers Miguel Ángel Benítez (aka El Migué; vocals, guitar; born on June 20, 1983) and Marcos del Ojo (aka El Canijo; vocals, guitar; born on June 27, 1982). Diego Pozo (aka El Ratón; guitar; born on October 21, 1975) subsequently joined the band, making it a trio. Los Delinqüentes made their album debut in 2001 with El Sentimiento Garrapatero Que Nos Traen las Flores on Virgin Records, followed in 2003 by the follow-up album Arquitectura del Aire en la Calle. Tragically, Benítez died on June 6, 2004, and guest musicians were brought into the studio for the subsequent album, among them Bebe, Diego Carrasco, and Kiko Veneno. The resulting album, El Verde Rebelde Vuelve (2005), spawned the group's most successful single to date, the Top Five smash hit "La Primavera Trompetera." A greatest-hits collection released in tribute to Benítez, Recuerdos Garrapateros de la Flama y el Carril (2006), was the last release by the band for several years. In 2009 remaining bandmembers Del Ojo and Pozo released the comeback album Bienvenidos a la Época Iconoclasta (2009), and it was the most popular Los Delinqüentes album release to date, peaking at number two on the Spanish albums chart. The album includes the hit single "El Increíble Gorrión Mojado." ~ Jason Birchmeier
