LEADER OF RADIO FUTURA AND LEGEND OF SPANISH ROCK

RADIO FUTURA has been acclaimed by radio stations and music publications alike as the "Best Spanish Group of the 1980s" and also, according to a 2004 poll of broadcasters for Spanish National Radio and Radio 3, the "Best Spanish Band of the last Quarter-Century." After releasing 9 LP's (SONY MUSIC) and after selling more than 1.000.000 copies, 1993 saw the debut of a new musical project under his pseudonym JUAN PERRO. As JUAN PERRO, Auseron has recorded Raices al viento (1995) in Habana, and in 1997, La huella sonora. In 2000, between tour segments in Mexico and the EEUU, he recorded Mr. Hambre, and in 2002, Cantares de vela (SONY MUSIC-WARNER). In 2011 released Rio Negro (LA HUELLA SONORA), JUAN PERRO's fifth album. Rio Negro has been acclaimed as one of his best recordings.
