The controversial name was a reference to the novel Boquitas Pintadas, by the Argentine writer Manuel Puig, so at the time, it was very “strong” for a band of young girls to be called that.
Raúl Velasco was one of those who thought twice before accepting the girls on his program, as he confessed that his style did not adapt to the Always on Sunday format.
According to what he said in an interview, the deceased driver, Sergio Andrade, approached him and said: “I have a group of girls that are going to be a success and they are very good.”
Raúl’s surprise was imminent. “How are they called?’ -I asked-. ‘Painted mouths’ -he responded-. I saw them, I said, ‘these are teenage prostitutes, man. That’s what they’re selling with the group.'”.

However, Velasco admitted that due to different pressures he had to let them sing on the leading Sunday program, although they disintegrated later.
