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.
