LA GUSANA CIEGA released their debut album MERLINA in 1996 with an independent label INTOLERANCIA based in Mexico City. A mixture of raw guitars, melodic vocals and intricate lyrics gave the band a distinctive sound that was different than other Mexican bands. The band started making a name underground and caught the attention of Polygram's label DISCOS MANICOMIO. After their second album at the end of 1997, the band went from power trio to a more traditional quartet. SUPER BEE turned out three hit singles with videos in MTV LATINO top ten and extensive radio air play.

CORRESPONDENCIA INTERNA was a darker and more elaborate album which left behind their original garage sound.
