Spanish pop band Radio Futura kicks out a funky rock groove that transcends culture

Spanish pop rock band Radio Futura may have been the Duran Duran of Spanish pop culture in the Eighties. With their funk-punk style, Radio Futura (meaning “Radio of the Future”) hit their commerical stride in 1984 when they recorded their second LP for Ariola (RCA), La Ley del Desierto, la Ley del Mar. The album featured the hit single, “Escuela de calor,” which became an international sensation.  The song, with its funky guitar riffs, disco pop grooves and infectious percussion, earned an even bigger audience in 2008 when it was featured in the popular “Guitar Hero: World Tour” game.
