180-gram LP. First standalone reissue. Features facsimile artwork and includes liner notes by Alejandro Montes, director of the 2013 Desechables documentary El Peor Dios. On December 23, 1983, five days before the show at which Desechables planned to record their debut album, Miguel Gonzalez Lopez, the band's guitarist, died of a bullet wound at a jewelry shop in Vilafranca del Penedes. The live album was never recorded, but Esteban Torralva, the band's manager, rescued soundboard recordings of the last Desechables gigs from the autumn of 1983 (mainly an October gig in Madrid) and assembled Desechables' first LP, Golpe tras golpe, released in the summer of 1984. In the words of Desechables vocalist Tere Gonzalez, Golpe tras golpe is the real Desechables. After the success of a late September concert in Lyon, Torralva had managed to get Desechables booked at two more European showcases on December 14 and 15, 1983, first at 120 Nuits in Paris and then at the Salle de la Cite in Rennes for Les Rencontres Trans Musicales. Everything seemed to be going well, and Desechables were on their way to establishing themselves with the recording of their first album, live. Desechables were a live band and we decided to record our first LP at Rock-Ola, explains Tere. Ana Curra (Paralisis Permanente) recalls, I remember how big an impression they made because they were so young, especially Tere. It was shocking to see that girl, she must have been 17 or so at the time, I guess. And she was very sweet. So to then see her acting so wild on stage, it was amazing, very shocking. And the austerity, the band's primitivism. Miguel's distorted guitar, giving off feedback, dirty, sewer-like... and Pei playing standing up with just small drum and snare. It was so primitive, so wild, that you were immediately drawn to them. As Tere and Pei explain, It was obvious that the record represented Miguel and it must be understood as an homage to his memory. It perfectly documents the Desechables sound in our first period. Since then, we've listened to it and we recognize in it our way of performing on stage, the strength within the band, it portrays all of us just as we were then, in the chaos, the noise, the few words. We weren't a band that said thanks or talked between songs.
