This looks to have been pressed from the same plates as the original. However, there seems to have been a bit of damage to them in the dormant 24 years - all copies I've seen have the same scratches and marks on them on the Ultimo Gobierno side, which has created quite a few surface noises and crackles which are actually in the pressing, rather than being damage sustained afterwards...

A really hard question:
Which side do you preffer? Ruido De Rabia or Ultimo Gobierno side?
Both are really amazing, The Ultimo Gobierno songs made me mad for years, but the Ruido De Rabia ones are so raw, so anti-music, so rabid!!!! And brilliant lyrics!!, Damnd!!!, Maybe I preffer Ruido De Rabia today.

The first time I listened to this record my mind blowned up not just for the extreme music but the amazing attitude of both bands.
UG wrote typical but sincere lyrics about war, starvation, control state, peace. But RDR moved a step forward, nobody in Spanish State had written such deep lyrics about sexual liberation, queer, militarism, education or religion (ok, maybe Tortura Sistematika, the singer and guitarist joined that band before RDR). For young punks then reading the RDR lyrics was learning a new way to face our reality .
The UG noise was pure attack of repetition, dirty and ugly riffs, powerful drums and a singer shouting monotonous disconformity.
RDR played rad crazy noisy hardcore, pure anger, believe me these punks were not happy at all living in this world. Rumors say the RDR riffs were written with phone numbers, I mean puting the fingers in the guitar fret according to a phone number.
The artwork of the record is awesome mainly the UG cover made by the guitar player, this cartoon is an Icon in the Iberic punk imagery.
Anyway the bands never were happy enough with the record sound they think the original masters were stronger and harder, but the record plant did not a good work pressing the records.
These days the UG singer keeps into HC and the drummer keeps into anti authoritarian ideas taking part in demos.
RDR members keep being cool people playing punk in other bands like Lobo Eléctrico.
