‘El Arte De La Elegancia De LFC’ features a collection of fresh takes on the band’s rarities in addition to two new tracks and a cover of Curtis Mayfield’s classic “Move On Up” (re-named “Vamos Ya”). “We’ve been searching for songs that represent the ‘B-side’ of LFC,” explains saxophonist Sergio Rotman. “They are the songs that we ‘lost’ amidst the madness and the band’s extensive discography. These are songs that were never played on the radio and we simply enjoyed re-visiting them again.”
“We are playing many shows these days so we didn’t have the time to write an album of entirely new songs,” Vicentico adds. “But we wanted to enter the studio and leave a record for how the band is sounding right now. So we decided on tracks that we have rarely played in the past – songs that deserve the attention. We spent a lot of time in the studio working on these re-interpretations and quickly became excited at the new power that we have as a group.”
Los Fabulosos Cadillacs have been widely acclaimed as one of the world’s most important rock bands of the past two decades. Recognized for their groundbreaking fusion of ska, rock, tropical, punk, reggae and Latin rhythms, the Cadillacs have sold millions of records worldwide. They became stars in their native Argentina throughout the late 80s before propelling the Latin Rock genre into the international spotlight in the 90s.
Songs like “Matador” and “Mal Bicho” were anthems for a generation and inspired thousands of youth and musicians across the globe. Los Fabulosos Cadillacs’ reputation led to recording collaborations with a variety of stars including Mick Jones (of The Clash), Celia Cruz, Ruben Blades, Deborah Harry (Blondie), Chris Frantz and Tina Weymouth (of the Talking Heads) and Fishbone.
