Discos Transgénero presents the first ever reissue of the Domestic Sampler UMYU.
Domestic Sampler was a project that Víctor Nubla (former member of Macromassa) recorded for the record label UMYU. It features a host of artists; a synergy of the scene that was happening in Barcelona at the beginning of the eighties.
El Grito Acusador, Entr’Acte. Logotipo, Klamm, Secreto Metro, Error Genetico, Detra’s Band 10, Boris, Mimi Pimer and Tres reflected the new wave underground scene of Catalan groups who revolved around Víctor Nubla as the mystic centre of their universe. Nevertheless, Domestic Sampler also represents a confluence between English and Spanish underground culture since Jim Whelton and Bing Selfish, who originated in The Homosexuals and The Murphy Federation, were living in Spain when they met Víctor Nubla. They hovered around the same scene in which projects such as Milk From Cheltenham, Amos & Superslicks and The Hostiapaths were engendered.
The LP was recorded at Sonitec studio (aka Gomi 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.
Domestic Sampler UMYU is a tremendously exciting and unrepeatable record that fully captures the creativity, anarchism and counter-cultural effervescence that emerged in Spain during the post-Franco period.
