A cult band and pioneers of industrial music, Esplendor Geometrico were one of the first cases of true independence in the history of Spanish music. Not only financial and organizational, but also creative independence.
This first single, Necrosis En La Poya (1981), was self-produced and distributed by the band themselves, before the appearance of the Spanish independent record labels in the early 80s. After receiving the needed funds from an enigmatic fan who decided to help out the release, a tiny run of 500 copies was pressed and quickly flew off the shelves. The iconic yet disturbing cover artwork surely shocked the regular clients at the few Madrid shops that were willing to stock the release but thankfully also managed to catch the attention of the emerging European scene of DIY experimental sounds and most of the copies found their way into the network of independent distributors.
Without a doubt this is one of the fundamental works by Esplendor Geométrico, where they started to develop their unique style of industrial music which would be such a great influence on other artists afterwards. Necrosis en La Poya is regarded by their fans as one of the best records ever made by the band and shows EG’s shift towards harsher industrial rhythms. After years unavailable, and previously officially reissued as part of the Esplendor Geometrico´s box only, here it is the legit reissue of one the most sought-after Spanish records, remastered from the original tapes.
