Unfinished Lennon song recovered by Spanish Beatles tribute band
[Posted by Adam Forrest on Wednesday, 11/02/11 6:11 pm] [Full Blog] [Tweet] [Facebook]

The Spanish Beatles tribute band, aptly named Los Escarabajos (Spanish word for "beetles") has recorded "Now And Then", an unfinished John Lennon song from 1979 that Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr tried in vain to complete in 1996 for the third volume of the Anthology project.

Los Escarabajos released a version of this original in 2001 for their CD Lennonphile (The Album That John Could Never Record), but the current rendition captures the concept of the singles included in Anthology by the remaining Beatles, "Free As A Bird" and "Real Love".

The 2011 remake of "Now And Then" is presented with an animated work by Alvaro Ortega, reputable Spanish visual artist, who shows his own colourful style reminding us of the ever classic Yellow Submarine and the recent The Beatles: Rock Band. (Click on the image above to watch the video.)

On the last World Animation Day, 28th of October, the song and video were published on YouTube, marking the 15th anniversary of The Beatles' Anthology 3 and the 10th anniversary of Los Escarabajos' Lennonphile.

In 2010, Los Escarabajos were given honorary degrees by the University of Seville for their work, having performed live the entire Beatles discography over the course of the Spanish group's 18-year history. The band was a headlining act at the International Beatle Week in Liverpool between 2003 and 2010.
