Sopa de Cabra
Sopa de Cabra are considered one of the pioneers of the Rock Catala movement. Previously of Ninyin's Mine Workers Union Band, guitarist Joan "Ninyin" Cardona, and bassist Francesc "Cuco" Lisicic teamed up with frontman Gerard Quintana, guitarist Josep Thio and drummer Josep "Pep" Bosch to form the band in 1986. Following two successful records, Sopa de Cabra cemented their status as Catalonia's biggest band with a historic concert at the Palau Sant Jordi in 1991, but went on to alienate much of their fan base with 1993's Spanish-sung flop Mundo Infierno. However, they soon restored their reputation with a string of critical and commercial successes throughout the '90s before calling it a day in 2001.
