EXTENDED BIOGRAPHY

"Bull y los Búfalos" is a rock band formed in 2002 in Madrid by recognized musicians from different backgrounds with Bull (Diego Avello) as its front man.

Bull was born in Cangas del Narcea, Asturias. He formed his first band there and toured across Northern Spain giving numerous concerts under the name of "Dalton Rockers". Later, he participated at different festivals with the band "Profetas" where he was the lead singer and Jorge Martinez (from "Ilegales" very famous Rock band) playing guitar.

This line up ended after the recording of a LP that never got to see the light. After this, Bull integrated one of the songs to "Bull y los Búfalos"' repertoire and Jorge Martínez published the complete list of songs with his band "Ilegales".

After leaving "Profetas", Bull decided to move to Madrid. Once in the capital, the 6'6 tall Asturian singer recorded the video for "Héroe de los Gatos" and formed "Bull y los Búfalos" along with guitarist Antonio Berdiales "Berdi", bassist Javier Cano (from "La Guardia") drummer Rodrigo Lopez, and Roberto Collado's harmonica. This line up toured throughout various Spanish stages writing several songs together.

In 2007, band members changed completely and finished recording their first LP "¿Quién dijo Miedo?". The recording was performed by both, the newer and previous musicians. The album consisted of eight original songs (lyrics: Bull, music: Bull and Berdi) and two covers: Elvis Presley's "Paralized" and "Motín en la Prisión" (taken from "Profetas" with Jorge from "Ilegales" as collaborator). The entirely self-produced album was released on October 15th, 2009 under the label "Circular Música", who published and distributed it in stores and online. The showcase took place in Madrid at "La Sal".

After recording the video of one the album's singles, "Alguien mejor que yo", an intense tour throughout many Spanish cities and small towns began, managed by band members with the help of booking manager Jaime Ortueta.
