Mierda – Hardcore Poble Nou

mierda 2

1977
Empieza Mierda Total, posiblemente la primera banda de Hardcore de la historia, sonido muy acelerado, crudo y sucio para la época.
1985
Mierda Total cambia de nombre a Mierda. Chico se compra una curiosa guitarra amplificada que llevaba un altavoz y Tonyo monta una bateria con una silla y un tambor de “Colón”. Inspirados por un Seat 600 que circulaba por Poble nou (barrio barcelonés), el cual llevaba un cartel enganchado que ponia MIERDA, nace el grupo con dicho nombre! Sin tener ni idea de tocar, empiezan a hacer hc-punk ruidoso influenciados por viejas bandas de por entonces como: Disorder, Antidogmatikss, Lärm, Wretched, Bgk, Pandemonium, Rattus, Chaos uk, IV reich, Sound of disaster, Mob 47, Siege…
1987
Llegan a grabar unas 5 o 6 cintas caseras que nunca salieron de casa, grabadas a saco con un radiocassette. Una copia de una de ellas se la envian a Mike de los míticos 7 MINUTES OF NAUSEA, con el cual hacían intercambio de cintas. Como curiosidad, 7 MINUTES OF NAUSEA hizo 2 temas de MIERDA en su mitico flexi ep “thrash bora”!!! Ya en esa época estaban de lleno consumiendo noisecore y grind, gracias a los intercambios de cintas, grupos como: Agathocles, G-anx, Fear of god, Schismopathic, Sore throat, 7 m.o.n., Filthy christians, Stench of corpse, Mutilation and death… y claro: Napalm death.
1988
En el 88 Tonyo hace un grupo de versiones thrash con un colega; Alberto cabañas, y le ponen el nombre de VIOLENT HEADACHE pero como Tonyo y Chico ya empezaban a hacer temas de puro grind-noise vieron más apropiado quedarse este nombre y al otro grupo le pusieron NOTHING IN CONCRETE. En Noviembre de 1988 nace oficialmente VIOLENT HEADACHE, dando sepultura a MIERDA.
1991
MIERDA se vuelve a juntar y graban otra cutre-cinta, el experimento duró sólo unos días.
1996
Este año se deciden a grabar de nuevo, como una muestra de lo que hacían, sin ningún tipo de cambio en los temas, tan solo, quizás, algo de experiencia a la hora de tocar. Y editan un cassette profesional en el sello arnedano “En las ramas pollos hay”.
2010
Se juntan de nuevo, esta vez en el local de ensayo de los Blokes (Barcelona), donde ensayan con Violent headacheY graban los 19 temas de este cassette, 14 años después!!! 

Mierda was formed in 1985, after Mierda Total, by Tonyo and Chico, two brothers born in Barcelona in a humble family emigrated from the south of Spain to work in the industrial city. They grew up in Poble Nou, a neighborhood plenty of factories. They played football in its streets, ate falafel and discovered punk and hardcore, since that moment nothing was the same. They just had been contaminated by the punk virus but they keep sicks, very sicks.
Along their lives they have played in Violent Headache, Angry Mob, Mobcharge, Mob 97, Becerrukers, Anti-Clinex, Obni, 45 Revolutions, Totalickers, Pandemedium, Scrap of Food,… and tons of other ones.
With them I’ve learned a lot. I started to write them in 1995 and they welcomed me when I moved to Barcelona in 1997. I passed my Nordic Beat exam with Chico as examinator, because he’s a D-Beat master and in that time we didn’t know the d-beat term. In BCN the Becerra brothers called it Nordic Beat because it was played often by bands from Sweden, Norge and Finland influenced by Discharge.
With them I’ve spent a lot of hours talking about compilation tapes, scappy bands, latinoamerican HC, demos… We were obssessed with the punk sound full of life and force, and with a way to play raw and strong.
Actually, Mierda haven’t stopped to play but in 25 years they have released only demos, homemade in the 80′s, one pro-copied tape in 1996 and… in September 2010they recorded their last one, “HARDCORE POBLE NOU”. 19 songs of eternal fast, raw, dirty hardcore punk with a lot to say. The songs were recorded by themselves with a PA but sound is very good.
Someone told me that Mierda is a mixture between Nikoteens and Zyclome A… Listen to them! I love this cassette, in fact it is released by this zine. The lyrics are fomidable, pure protest cry, they shit on the Internet a lot of times because it is one of the reasons due to the punk is more alienated everyday, step by step punk is more a consumerist act than a protest movement. Lyrics attack capitalism, music privatization, violence, Israel State, VIP punks and the fashion, destruction of nature, the fight as a feeling that we have to practice often, and life far from the city as a response to madness.
