Enrique Sierra: Guitarist with the influential Spanish band Radio Futura

If Enrique Sierra, the ex-guitarist from Radio Futura – Spain's most important rock band of the post-Franco years – was to be remembered for one song, it would be the 1983 hit "Escuela de Calor". Relentlessly catchy and shot through with co-writer Sierra's simple, snappy guitar riffs, "Escuela de Calor" remains for many Spaniards a musical high-tide mark of la movida Madrileña. This was an explosion of artistic creativity, coupled with the breaking down of previously rigid social barriers and mores, that followed General Franco's death in 1975. For intensity, willingness to experiment and sheer novelty, la movida has never since been equalled in Spain. As for Radio Futura, they were one of la movida's musical standard-bearers.

Errors & Omissions: This incredible chaos is getting beyond the boundaries of belief

"Chaos on roads and railways to continue today, warn forecasters." That headline appeared over a news story on Monday. It happens every winter: severe weather is greeted by the absurdly overdramatic word "chaos". Of course, "chaos" is a short word, and as such very difficult to keep out of headlines.
