Spanish rock strap Barricada was shaped in the first ’80s by singer/bassist Enrique “Un Drogas” Villareal, who was simply joined up with by ex-Némesis guitarist Javier Hernández, drummer Mikel Astrain, and ex-Kafarmaún singer/guitarist Sergio Oses, producing their live debut in 1982. Quickly, guitarist Alfredo Piedrafita changed Sergio Oses. In 1983, self-employed label Thereforeñua released the band’s debut recording, known as Noches de Rock and roll & Move. On Apr 2, 1984, musician Mikel Astrain passed on, victim of a bad mind tumor. Drummer Fernando Coronado took his place. To commemorate Astrain’s contribution, the group made up a song known as “Pon Esa Música de Nuevo,” contained in Barricada’s second recording, Barrio Conflictivo, that was released by RCA and accompanied by 1985’s No Hay Tregua. After registering to PolyGram, the rock and roll act documented No Se Que Hacer Contigo and Rojo, made by Dennis J. Herman and released in March of 1988. A self-titled dual recording came out later on, recorded go on January 19, 20, and 21, 1990.
