In 1978, Olvido Gara (aka Alaska) started a music project called Kaka de Luxe, playing along with Nacho Canut and Carlos Berlanga. The band was part of the Spanish new wave known as Movida Madrile+¦a. When musicians Ana Curra and Eduardo Benavente joined in, its name was changed to Alaska y los Pegamoides, recording its first single called "Horror En El Hipermercado" in 1980, followed by "Otra Dimensi+¦n" in 1981. When Alaska y los Pegamoides' debut album came out, a song called "Bailando" climbed on the music charts, consolidating the group internationally. After releasing Alaska y Los Pegamoides in 1982, Curra and Benavente decided to leave to start their own project called Paralisis Permanente. This caused the band to change its name again. The new three-piece act Alaska y Dinarama debuted in 1983 with an album called Canciones Profanas, followed by 1994's Deseo. As the decade moved forward, Alaska y Dinarama completed its discography with the release of 1986's No Es Pecado and 1988's Diez. ~ Drago BonacichPortions of Content Provided by Rovi Corporation.
