It was quite a surprise for the band when a distributor became aware of it, suggesting to launch the album as roughly as it was. Media response was far beyond expectations. Limousine's songs tell stories about thorns in hearts and the power of failure. Compositions are simple, without frills, but catchy melodies might get you hooked more easily than you'd like them to.
2) Limousine were formed in Cordoba, Spain by mid 2001 under the premise of creating different rock music, evocative and that didnt rely on mainstream criteria. Their career started when they stood for the contest Desafinado, whose jury had distinguished personalities of the national alternative scene as Jesus Llorente (in charge of the label Acuarela), J (singer of Los Planetas), or Julio Ruiz (Discogrande - RNE3). The members of the jury were astonished when the band decided to leave the stage at the very half of their performance, refusing to play under the awful sound conditions that the organization provided. In spite of this, the band gave evidence of their personality and quality as performers and were proclaimed winners of the edition together with two other local bands: Blue Channel and Deneuve.
The prize made it possible to record three songs (A Drive, But Im Going Down and Cmon) in a professional studio so they could introduce themselves to some record labels. Several of them were interested in releasing their first long-play, and the band opted for Mushroom Pillow, a label from Madrid of Galician origin. Their first LP was named The Phenomenon Caravan Troupe (Mushroom Pillow, 2004), record with which they, apart from becoming well-known in the Spanish scene, got into foreing markets as Japan, Belgium, Germany, Austria, the Netherlands, Switzerland and Portugal. In Spain they received tons of good reviews from specialized press, most of them stressing the fact that they didnt sound like any regular Spanish band and praising the originality of their sound and the quality of their songs. In May 2006 the band released their second record, a double album called The Abyss You Can Reach With A Hand (Mushroom Pillow, 2006).
