Miqui Puig

Dandy with a distinctive bouquet, singer of love songs since 1968, passionate omnivore of discs, chronicler of underground urban culture, sybarite of the life and times of El Vallès and lover of all of the images that surround the liturgy of thinking, acting and writing songs, Miqui Puig is a central figure in Spanish-language pop. From the tiny venues that staged his first group’s howls to today’s crooner (with band), via mass success with Los Sencillos (their “Bonito es” and “Doctor Amor” are still favourites in karaokes, local cafés and sing-alongs at your mate’s house) and a TV career, his experience shadows the course of pop music in this country. Puig continues to host radio shows with his unmistakable style à la Jarvis Cocker (Can Tuyus) and bring his untiring enthusiasm to new projects like the band Agrupació Cicloturista Puig. The latest draws on a passion for his slightly Gothic pre-mod adolescent past and cycling as a stylistic sport: obscure circles, two-tone cycling gear and the choruses that have always been his trademark.
