RATOS DE PORAO “Al Kasal” 18.00 EUR / 80zł

(Thrashbastard+Beat Generation+Metadona) This album by Ratos de Porao “Al Kasal” is the still photo of a historical moment that happened in the mid-90s of the 20th century on the quiet island of Mallorca. For about three years, an old abandoned factory became the dream industry of the city’s youth thanks to the first experience of a squatted and self-managed social center such as Kasal Llibertari, lagging behind contemporary experiences in other Cities like Minuesa in Madrid, the Princesa Cinema in Barcelona, the Kasal Popular in Valencia or the infinity of gaztetxes that took over towns and cities in Euskadi. What we find in the sound artifact produced by the Metadona, Thrash Bastard and Beat Generation labels is the recording of the first visit to the island of the mythical Brazilian hardcore group Ratos de Porao in the period between their albums “Feijoada accidente?” and “Carniceria tropical”. The 4-track recording by Javi Vegas captures the freshness and urgency of a band characterized by unbridled fury and technical superiority over many of their contemporaries. But it also shows us a wide cultural richness within the punk universe that has always surrounded them, alternating versions of other groups with own songs from the band from São Paulo in their fast-paced set. It is worth noting the great quality of the sound, which has been recently mastered by Tomeu at DST Estudios in Llubí, which transports us directly to that hot night in August 1996, in a room full to the brim, with a dedicated audience that take advantage of the short breaks to chant anti-militarist slogans. That was the atmosphere of a time when the country’s youth were still called up and against which hundreds and hundreds of rebels stood up. They were nights of sweat and noise compared to mornings of evictions and courts. Includes a 16 page risograph fanzine of the history of Kasal Llibertari
