The damn "Movida" ... The best that can be said of that phenomenon is that it was the starting point and the trigger of something else, of that movement that garnered not fame but was far more interesting musically and intellectually, although the glow of glamor went to the fatuous flames of superficiality. This other movement, in contrast, had neither name nor anyone singing its praises. It centered on the existential angst described by the Danish philosopher Søren Kierkegaard instead of the jovial innocence of silly pop in the late 70s and the very early 80s of the last century.

It was not a time for joking around. In the streets there was fear to go out at night and, yes, in the daytime too. There were bank robberies and brutal terrorist attacks. Unemployment was reaching scandalous heights (percentage-wise almost the same as those which have devastated Spain since the fall of Lehman Brothers in 2008). Salaries, meanwhile, were miserable ... There were even attempts at a coup d'etat and heroin began its sinister reign among drugs before AIDS dramatically knocked us off our high "horse". Was there anything to celebrate?

No. The outlook was grim and, logically, after a few years that we had wanted to celebrate because of the death of Franco, murky and ominous images began to inhabit the collective subconscious of those youths who were apolitical by necessity. The most extraordinary paradox is that it was a light-hearted new wave group, Aggressive Executives, that served as the seed for this shift in orientation. Many characters came together in that group who were going to 180 on the music that was being made. Carlos Entrena, their singer, who would be one of the founders of the GASA label and the leader of Tenth Victim was there. Also there was Ignacio Gasca, a boy from San Sebastián known as Poch who, after the break up of Aggressive Executives, would form Derribos Arias. Jaime Urrutia was in the line-up, who would soon be the singer and guitarist of Gabinete Caligari. The band included Juan Luis Vizcaya, who had a brief stint as the drummer of Alaska and the Pegamoides. Also a member was Paco Trinidad, who would be another of the founders of GASA and who, with time, would become the main record producer of the 1980s (Hombres G, Duncan Dhu ...).

The transition from one era to another had an exact date: the 13th of November 1982. On that day, in the auditorium of the School of Ways of Madrid, took place the last concert that Alaska and the Pegamoides played in Madrid, although none of the members themselves knew this for sure at the time. They gave to their fans, along with the tickets, to flexi-disc that included two unreleased songs - 'Fly' and 'The garden' - both written by Eduardo Benavente (also of Permanent Paralysis), with a theme and style that had nothing to do with what Alaska and the Pegamoides had done so far. To wrap up that moment symbolically, the group that opened the show was The Monaguillosh, who would shortly become one of the best-known bands of the nascent psychedelic "sinister" sound ...
