Los Toreros Muertos

 Los Toreros Muertos was a musical group of the new wave/power pop/punk movement on the Spanish-speaking music scene known as La Movida Madrileña.

The Spanish singer and humorist Pablo Carbonell with Many Moure and Guillermo Piccolini formed this group in 1985. Their career spanned seven years to its dissolution in 1992. It produced songs for the public that were marked by an individual and irreverent originality and edgy humor.

Their first single was Yo no me llamo Javier. With the gradual relaxation of mores in Spain in the mid-1980s, there was a perceived explosion of out-of-wedlock births. This song was a barbed commentary written from the viewpoint of a young man named Javier accused of fathering a child. It was one of the songs included on their album 30 años de éxitos. On this album, one can perceive the influence of Madness and the Mondragón Orchestra. Also among its songs is Mi agüita amarilla.

In 1987, they released Por Biafra, its best song being On the Desk which ranks up with any of Madness's delightful song from the horn arrangements to the Music Hall style piano. It was a parody of the English language instruction standard in the Spanish national education system. Another of the songs on this album, Pilar, also received some airplay.
