The Family CASETE Vinyl Record
FAMILY is an immense and mysterious group. "Un Soplo en El Corazón" was love at first listen for so many people, and it awakened our desire to know more about it's stars. But only a lucky few of us could talk about their history in EL JOVEN LAGARTO and a prior demo to the album that gave them a definitive place and what would soon be the group's only album. It's considered by the media and by fans to be one of the most important and influential albums in the history of pop music in Spain. We know that many of you have been anxiously awaiting this - so have we - and the time has finally arrived: Elefant Records is going to release FAMILY's "silver" demo. It will be a 12" vinyl called "Casete". Because that's what this album is, a recording that Aramburu and Gametxogoikoetxea made - alone and on cassette - on a four track cassette reel. Dated 1991, it is a faithful reflection of what they were, without buffers, without the refinement that comes from production, with the limitations of their amateurism and the force of their conviction. "Casete" is FAMILY in all it's intimacy. And right along with that scarce-resource spirit is their design, which plays with the original cassette's spareness without adding after the fact anything that could contaminate it's memory. A good part of the value of that demo now resides in the extra-musical aspects, like the memory that goes along with that recording that the group gave away as a homemade cassette. This "Casete" from FAMILY is definitely the album we listened to the most in our rooms as students when we were starting to give shape to our little label, and it's songs have been an important part of our lives without a shadow of a doubt. The fondness we still feel for these songs, these first versions and that cassette tape that Javier gave us, is infinite. The photography that comes with this release now was done during that recording. It is Javier and Iñaki in their "workshop" in San Sebastián in October, 1991.
