The Galician scene of the ‘80s, narrated by Antón Reixa (Os Resentidos). Germán Copini (Golpes Bajos), Julián Hernández (Siniestro Total) and other pillars excavate the humour, punk rebellion, turmoil and freshness of that seminal Northern new wave.

 

The Galician scene of the ‘80s, narrated by Antón Reixa (Os Resentidos). Or how the repressions, violence, unemployment and general chaos of post-Francoism were answered in Galicia with imagination, curiosity and the sensation of an “open field”. Galicians and non-Galicians explore the spirit of its effervescent Eighties on our behalf: Germán Coppini (Siniestro Total, Golpes Bajos), Julián Hernández (Siniestro Total), Pablo Novoa (Golpes Bajos) but also Los Nikis, Nacha Pop, Aviador Dro and Víctor Coyote excavate the humour, punk rebellion, turmoil and freshness of that seminal Northern new wave. The lesson is simple: the closing down of the naval industries, repression and the capacity to laugh at oneself distilled a movement that was nothing like its Madrid counterpart: much more critical on one hand and absurd – retranca – on the other. Siniestro Total emerge as quintessential pillars, and the archive images of their early days are a delight  (in The Golden Age Julián affirmed “we only revived the tradition of the Archpriest of Hita”). But Siniestro paved the way for all the rest.  (Aerolíneas Federales, Semen Up...) clubs and fanzines included. Vital.
