Once a Catalan indie/alt rock outfit that sang exclusively in English, Barcelona's Love of Lesbian shifted gears and became an indie/alt rock outfit that sang exclusively in Spanish.
Their pedigree in their native country was strong, and by 2000, the group was opening for one of rock's most trusted live acts, the Cure. Formed in 1997, the band -- Santi Balmes, Oriol Bonet, Joan Planell, Jordi Roig, and Julian Saldarriaga -- released their first album (Microscopic Movies) in 2000. In 2005, the group had made the shift in language for their hit fourth album, Maniobras de Escapismo. In 2010, the still vital and still popular Love of Lesbian released album number seven, a live collection entitled Maniobras en Japon. ~ Chris True, Rovi
