    More Details Hide Details Jo Dworniak was the producer, and Rafael J. Vegas joined as a bass player. After leaving RCA, Rosendo started recording with Twins. The first album with this label was Jugar al gua (1988), which features songs with a different style (e.g., the Del pulmón reggae), but also one of his key songs Flojos de pantalón. The second record for Twins was Directo (1989), a live disc including two songs by Leño. Later Twins joined DRO, with whom Rosendo has kept on recording up to present (2005). The first album for DRO, Deja que les diga que no, appeared in 1991. Eugenio Muñoz took part in the production, as he did in later discs. Next year Rosendo published the disc La tortuga, containing a song that became quite popular: Majete. With Para mal o para bien (1994), he recorded for the first time in the El Cortijo del Aire studio, in the Cabo de Gata. Some outstanding songs are ¿De qué vas? and Hasta de perfil.

  • 1977
    Age 22
    Molina and himself were not in very good terms, so Rosendo left the group in 1977. He then formed Leño, where he played the guitar and acted as a vocalist as well. Chiqui Mariscal (bass player) and Ramiro Penas (drums) also left Ñu to join him in Leño. They made their debut in 1978, acting as the support band at an Asfalto's gig.
    More Details Hide Details They had been hired by Vicente Romero (producer). Romero was founding Chapa Discos ("Chapa Records") at that time, and published the collective disc Viva el Rollo, Vol. II. Rock del Manzanares, which included two Leño's songs: Este Madrid and Aprendiendo a escuchar. Later in 1979 they published their first album, entitled Leño. It was produced by Teddy Bautista, and it characterises for including songs with long instrumental sections. Two songs: El tren and Este Madrid are remarkable. Chiqui Mariscal left the band in the middle of the recording sessions, and he was substituted by Tony Urbano; the disc sleeve portrays this fact. In 1980 they published their second album, Más madera. It evidences Teddy Bautista's influence. The songs are shorter and have a lighter style. In 1981 Leño recorded live En directo at the Carolina club in Madrid. Despite its poor sound quality, the disc made it quite well at the shops, granting great success to the band. It includes one of Rosendo's best-known songs, Maneras de vivir. Luz Casal (chorus) and Teddy Bautista (keyboards) played with them.
