Another sample of the origins of Punk in Spain. This very rare single was originally released in 1978 by the Belter label, and is the only recorded work this short-lived band from Barcelona ever put out. BASURA translates for "garbage", and the songs included for "Don't Be A Lesbian, Honey", and "Waiting At The W.C. Door". Sounds like PUNK, uhhhh???. Well, don't get fooled. They were in fact marketed as "punk" by their label, and they played the Alianza del Poble Nou festival (considered the kickstart of spanish Punk), but truth is they were some sort of working class rock band ("rock de barrio" as it was called here) with musical influences of earlier 70s guitar rock bands, and only the anger and bad manners of Punk. No doubt La Banda Trapera del Rio were the best, most popular, and legendary band outta Barcelona, but along with them there a few others that tried to set the world on fire in those days of Spain's young democracy. BASURA were one of them, and this was their only single. Original copies are always sold for big money on collectors'fairs and internet sites, but it's easier to get our reissue, from the original master tapes, and in an exact reproduction of the original artwork.
