Spanish progressive-rock band from the 70's, led by Teddy Bautista since 1964. They dared to arrange a version of Vivaldi's "Four Seasons" on their album "Ciclos" (1974). Their more pop oriented songs had a big success, as "Get on your knees".

Original members: Eduardo "Teddy" Bautista (vocals, guitar) / Rafael Izquierdo, replaced by Germán Pérez (lead guitar) / Alvaro Yébenes (bass) / Joaquín González, replaced by Feliciano "Nano" Muñoz (trumpet) / Graham Bircumshaw, later replaced by Félix Sierra (organ) / Alfredo Máiquez (trombone) / Vicente Máiquez (sax) / José "Tato" Luzardo (drums). For a while, in 1968/69, Teddy Bautista (on the military service) was replaced by [a409344].

On 1972 there was a different turn on their music. Drummer and lead guitar were replaced by Alan Richard and Salvador Domínguez. They released live "Canarios vivos", but soon after that Teddy split the band and reformed it with new musicians. The older ones founded "Alcatraz", and Teddy with Alan, plus brothers Jess and James Lamn, recorded "Ciclos".
