A great poet

Javier Martínez is the author of the lyrics of songs like Avellaneda blues, which Luis Alberto Spinetta himself praised in many interviews. He achieved a unique way of accommodating Spanish words to the rhythms of blues.

Although he was previously in groups such as Los Secuaces and Los Beatniks, Manal was his most forceful musical project. It was put together at the end of the ’60s, when Argentine rock was taking its first steps thanks to artists like Moris, Miguel Abuelo, Tanguito, Pappo, Litto Nebbia with Los Gatosand Gustavo Santaolalla with Rainbow.

Manal released a second album in 1971 (The lion) and Javier then emigrated to Spain, but not before participating in the legendary BA Rock festivals. He also recorded with Billy Bond and The Heavy Rock.

Their return and the eventual reunion of the famous trio occurred in 1980, with a new album, successful and massive shows at the Obras stadium and a live album.

As a soloist, in 1983 he released southern sun and in the ’90s Currents and swing (later reissued as Enough of the idiots). In 2016 there was an important Manal meeting organized by businessman Jorge “Corcho” Rodríguez, which included a show at his private club Red House, a live album, a DVD and a luxurious photo book.
