"Al Baix Llobregat N'hi Ha a Ciutat that is diu ... Cornellá, Ciutat de Áfrika" read the cover that the cartoonist Carlos Azagra had designed for the first model of Monstruación. And it is that, indeed, just as they sang on the song "Korneyá" with an intro inspired by that "House of the Rising Sun" by The Animals, theirs was the city of Baix Llobregat "where the suburban punk and the emigrant worker ". They were together with, for example, HHH or Pisando Fuerte, one of the Catalan punk groups of the decadeof the 80 that came, not from the heart of the Ciudad Condal, but from its suburbs, habitat, on the other hand, in which La Banda Trapera del Río had also developed, responsible with its urban rock for the proto-punk seed of the whole explosion that came later. January 5 and 20, 1987, are the two days that, according to the information in the interior, they dedicated to the recording in the Maratón de Barcelona studios, although Jordi Llansamà was told, for his Full of Everything. Oral history of punk in the city of Barcelona 1979-1987 (BCore, 2011)that everything was ready in one day: recording the instruments in one morning before lunch and in the afternoon, choirs and mixes. They attribute to their relationship with Anti / Dogmatikss that the songs were recorded in the studio at a higher speed than they used to play them, but it was emphasized that theirs, at least at the beginning, was acceleration rather than hardcore. And they were probably right, because their Cornellá, Ciutat de Áfrika (1987) brought some ska note, the punk-rock buzzer of the moment and even some epic melody like the guitars of "A muerte". " There are no longer punks in the streets, the streets have triumphed"They lamented in" Escabechina ". They do not deny either that political nuance that some of their letters had: To finish with the structure of the feudal state, the Church, capital and bourgeoisie from the street and the bar; death to the employer and freedom to the worker ... but above all a clear conscience that, before the abandonment that the citizen suffers on the part of State and institutions, there is no other alternative but the union for the defense. A work in which the lover of these sounds will not find any waste.
