The group was founded in 1964. Its members were Fernando Arbex (1941-2003), Manuel Gonzalez, Juan Pardo and Antonio Morales, “Junior”. They were known as "The Spanish Beatles''. It was initially thought to name the group “The Black Sheeps”. All singles of this first years were number one in the Spanish lists.
Juan Pardo and Antonio Morales split in 1967 to form the duo Juan & Junior. New Brincos were reassembled under the leadership of Arbex, with new members Ricky Morales and Vicente Jesus Martinez, from both band Shakers
In 1969 Vicente Martinez also left the band and was replaced by Miguel Morales, brother of Junior and Ricky, and Colombian Oscar Lasprilla on keyboards. At the request of Arbex, they decanted into a more psychedelic rock, which in those years was ousting of youth preferences to beat. So they recorded the concept album “Mundo, Demonio, Carne” (1970), also published in English as “World, Devil, Body”. Its discreet reception decided them to disband the group. Arbex founded Alacran and later on Barrabas.

There are three versions of this album and all are terrific. The BMG release is the Spanish lp with a bunch of bonus tracks, some of which are on the other two releases. The English version of World Devil and Body has a different cover and trades Butterfly, Kama-Sutra, Jenny, Miss Genuis, Carmen, Hermano Ismael, and Vive La Realidad for 4 different tracks – Promises & Dreams, If I Were You, Misery and Pain, and Body Money Love/Cheap, Cheap, Cheap. All four tracks are excellent, particularly the beatlesque power pop of Body Money Love and the hard charging raga rocker, If I Were You. Once again, this album is certainly mandatory listening for fans of psychedelia and progressive pop.
