Barón Rojo. Larga vida al Rock&Roll

Director Javier Paniagua, José San Cristóbal
Spain / 95 min. / 2012 / Spanish, English


A heavy group of non-friends that triumphed. Where did it all go pear-shaped?  Their reunion for the 30th anniversary tour exposes the schisms and summits,  the typical Spanish cock-up, the fans (Bunbury, among them), the workerist stance and their anti-Movement character. Red or dead.  

 

They were a group of heavy non-friends that despite internal tensions, managed to triumph in a field and era that few had before them. And what’s more, they achieved immortality. The question is inevitable: “Where did it all go pear-shaped, when it all seemed to be going so well?” Their reunion for the 30th anniversary tour, captured in this documentary, reveals the marvels and miseries of a group that few people saw fit to   reincarnate. The four band members reveal how the band was formed of two opposing groups with irreconcilable stances: José Luis Campuzano “Sherpa” and Hermes Calabria on one side, the brothers Armando and Carlos De Castro on the other. And nevertheless, more or less united, its members – pinned down in their homes, with their wives and kids, living their daily lives – relate how Barón Rojo road out schisms and conquered summits (The Reading Festival), filled stadiums, despite the typical Spanish cock-up and the skinny support of Zafiro (or “root of all evil” as they describe it here). They establish a slew of fans (Bunbury, among them) and vindicate their workerist stance and anti-Movement character. Red or dead. Resistance till the bitter end.
