Bandcamp pick of the week: Abstracte - Barcelona Avantgarde & Industrial 1981-1986


May 22, 2017

Abstracte is a retrospective, a contemporary vision towards the past, a glimpse into a historical, artistic and musical moment in time, a spontaneous movement, disjointed and groundbreaking, wholly counter-culture and out of the mainstream circuits, which Barcelona lived in the late 70s/ early 80s, hardly remembered today.

This is a cross-section of the underground scene of these days and it is also a sample, a recognition and a selection of pioneering artists, musicians who showed the path to many that followed. More than thirty years on, our perception of what this revolution in the Barcelona music scene meant has mutated and evolved.
