After their first single, ‘Necrosis en la poya’ (1981), Esplendor Geométrico released their first cassette that same year: “EG-1”. A cult band of Industrial music, they were one of the first cases of true independence in the history of Spanish music. Not only financial and organizational, but also creative independence. These first works were self-produced and distributed by the band themselves, before the appearance of the Spanish independent record labels in the early 80s.
The first edition of “EG-1” (300 copies) quickly sold out in the international underground circuit of cassette labels that was emerging during those years. It was reissued on the same format by different labels such as Datenverarbeitung (Germany, 1982), Ortega y Cassette (Barcelona, 1985), EGK (Madrid, 1987) and Línea Alternativa (Madrid, 1989), and later on there would be 2 CD editions.
Without a doubt, “EG-1” is one of the fundamental works by Esplendor Geométrico, on which they started to develop their unique style of rhythmic-noisy- industrial music which would be such a great influence on other artists afterwards. Tracks like ‘Muerte a escala industrial’, ‘Destrozaron sus ovarios’ and ‘Neuridrina’ are regarded by their fans as some of the best recorded by the band.
On this vinyl edition (limited to 700 copies), the music HAS BEEN REMASTERED FROM THE ORIGINAL TAPES FOR THE FIRST TIME, achieving the best sound possible. The LP includes insert with photos, texts and designs of E.G. from 1981!
