“Nos Va La Marcha” Soundtrack (1979)

nosvalamarchaI’ve had my eye on the 1979 Spanish documentary/concert album Nos Va La Marcha for quite a while.  I don’t know much about it, other than it’s from film about the September 22, 1978 Rocktiembre concert.  I can’t remember when I first came across this record, though I’m 99% sure it was online somewhere, and what finally prompted me to pull the trigger was that it was in the eBay store of a guy I was buying some other stuff from.

I’ve seen this described as punk, but it’s probably more rock/garage.  The opening track, Mad’s “Madrid Airport,” is some pretty cool psych, but the high point is the trippy synth “Si No Te Ries De Tu Propio Culo” by Teddy Bautista.  Overall the sound quality on Nos Va La Marcha is just OK.  At times the album suffers from noticeable distortion, and it doesn’t appear to be due to faults unique to my copy – some portions just sound like the audio was too loud and fried out.  It’s very much a late 1970s quality live recording.  Decent, but uneven.
