To talk about the Parròquia & Metro Rooms is to talk about the trend, it’s about very advanced clubs in its time that knew how to compete musically in the heart of Terres de l’Ebre, halfway between the two main capitals of the Mediterranean coast Valencia and Barcelona.
We talk about the «New Wave Culture» and all its derivatives. A genre that originated in the late 70’s and played with electric guitar, bass, drums and that incorporated synthesizers.
In Valencia, where it all began with the help of the legendary DJ Fran Lenaers, the famous Spook Factory, ACTV, Masia, Barraca, Puzzle, Chocolate, … discos set the pace, and in Barcelona the Verdi Room, Cosmopolita Electric Bar, KGB, Kodigo emerged and a burning Psychodromo already in the morning.
In Terres de l’Ebre, where thousands of indisputable from all over the Iberian Peninsula arrived, along with Parròquia&Metro, also marked a golden age of other discos and clubs such as La Metro, Tutmosis, Cocoa, Andros, Lokal, Metrónom, …, all of them like those in Valencia and Barcelona, authentic «Temples of Sound» and of «New Wave Culture«.
In the late 80’s and early 90’s, the Parròquia disco presented in concert leading bands of the moment such as The Godfathers, Alien Sex Fiend, The Psychedelic Furs or The Cassandra Complex.
This «New Wave Culture» in the early 1990’s was engulfed by a «Bakalao Route«, of great commercial interest to some promoters and businessmen of the night, but with music, labelled «Makina» that was years’ light away of the musical culture and the quality of great artists and bands, lived in those «Temples of Sound» only a few years earlier.
This Live DJ Set presents what was the essence of the New Wave and all its derivatives until 1991. Fusing Post-Punk, Glam-Rock, Gothic-Rock, Folk Rock, Pop-Rock guitars, …, with the bases of EBM and Industrial and the tunes of Techno-Pop or Synth-Pop.
An authentic high-voltage music cocktail!
