Domestic Sampler UMYU
Released: 31st August 2017
Limited edition: 500.
Key first wave DIY document featuring Homosexuals avant pop genius, Jim Welton and the sometime elusive, Bing Selfish. An unrepeatable document of the febrile post-Franco art-music scene based in Barcelona.
Domestic Sampler was a project that Víctor Nubla (former member of Macromassa) recorded for the record label UMYU. It's very much a document of the time, mystical groups - here, gone. Grito Acusador, Entr’Acte. Logotipo, Klamm, Secreto Metro, Error Genético, Detra’s Band 10, Boris, Mimi Pimer and Tres are joined by interesting 'tourists' looking to try out something new in a different city.
The LP was recorded at Sonitec studio (aka Gomis 42) where Víctor used to work. By day the studio was used to record music for the mainstream, advertisements or porn, but by night Víctor recorded underground bands, thus spending days in Sonitec Studio and nights in UMYU Studio. All the bands involved worked in a very collaborative way; after all, they were sharing the instruments. The cost of the recording was divided by the minutes that would fit onto the disc and each group paid for the time that they were using, subsequently receiving an amount of discs proportional to what they paid. The album was never openly distributed through record stores; the bands distributed it by themselves.
This is another beautifully realised archive project by our friends at Discos Transgénero
