To serve as an advance for LE MANS swansong album “Aquí vivía yo”, two singles were previously released. Both featured an album track and three non-album tracks. Both boasted a very effective, simple design: a big, black capital letter over white. “F” in “Mi novela autobiográfica” single, I” in “Yin Yang”. The album sleeve gave the game away: this time the letter was an “N”. F-I-N stands for “end” in Spanish. The band announced their split.
“Yin Yang” (the song) features an atmosphere quite alike to its preceding single, “Mi Novela Autobiográfica”, samplings and slightly danceable rhythms: Jone sings better than ever, turning down an impertinent suitor with the smartest indifference and nonchalance.
On “Jueves 27” they experiment with rhythm, and also with the metrics of the rhythm, and Teresa shows how beautiful her voice is.
“Hay Que Ver” needs a new paragraph. It’s amazing how they mix genius with sense of humour, and originality with an absolute lack of prejudices: a Greek choir replies a wonderful lyric, and they end the song with a harmonica solo, with a country feeling (!), by renowned Spanish harmonicist Ñaco Goñi.
Finally, “Belleza Arrebatadora” (rapturing beauty) is an instrumental song with a perfect title, something like a cult movie soundtrack for your ears only.
