In 1996, frontman Sebastián Teysera presented a demo tape to a band contest. The rest of the band did not become aware of this until they found out they were one of the twenty finalists. A month later, they recieved a phone call saying they had won, and with this they were given 80 hours of free recording session which would be vital for their debut album.

Me tira un sueo y no le puedo contestar
Arranca sola y no se va a detener
Caigo de tripa, no me va a dejar volar
Me pregunta si hoy traigo mi fe
- LyricsAlguna piña llovió
Y otro pesado cayó
Que se den cuenta que estamos cerca.
De bandera la ilusión
Y preparando la acción
