"Ruido anticapitalista"

After its debut demo tape split with "Olor A Sobako" in 1988, which was very popular and had a big sucess in the spanish hc / punk scene, TARZAN recorded this split vinyl LP next to Sin Dios, but the result was not quite good, lirycs not too much good and strictly musical a little bit poor, not original... TARZAN made a kind of punk far from hardcore and closer to classic rock sound. Despite TARZAN side is not bad, in general people prefered the Sin Dios side. Few years after it was released on CD format with only TARZAN songs.

"Rompe la norma"
Year:  1994
Country:  Spain
City:  Madrid
Label:  Potencial  HC
Format:  LP , CD
Tracks:  12
Time:  28 min.
Lyrical themes:  anarchism
Genre:  rock
Style:        Hardcore        Reggae


















In this album and the next, TARZAN experimented a huge improvement in all aspects: originality, creativity, art, poetry, quality sound, technical level, production,etc. It seem that with Split Godless was only a small musical "slip" (if you will allow me the expression), but quickly recovered quality. Probably one of the best spanish hardcore punk albums recorded ever next to Subterranean Kids or BAP, to mention some ones. Even If you don't understand spanish language, I recommend to listen to it a few. Very good stuff.

"...pero no es loco ni es violento"
Year:  1997
Country:  Spain
City:  Madrid
Label:  Potencial HC
Format:  CD
Tracks:  11
Time:  37 min.
Lyrical themes:  anarchism
Genre:  rock
Style:        Hardcore        Reggae



















One of the best Tarzan´s albums ever made was this one. Hardcore energy with doses of afro music such as: funk, ska and reggae. This mixture became TARZAN... in a kind of spanish "Bad Brains" version during few years and the album had quite success in the spanish HC/punk community. High recommended.

"Principio activo"
Year:  2002
Country:  Spain
City:  Madrid
Label:  Disidencia
Format:  CD
Tracks:  13
Time:  34 min.
Lyrical themes:  anarchism
Genre:  rock
Style:        Hardcore        Hard Rock



















Difficult to understand why this album was and is so unknown in the scene and it seem, this kind of "failure" was one of the causes to disband TARZAN... The true is the recording could be considered its best next to "Rompe la norma". Very good songs which abandoned ska / reggae influence to embrace sounds closer to classick rock'n'roll, with some similarities to the canadian punk rock band D.O.A. Maybe the label didn't enough work to promote and distribute the album, maybe just bad luck... Musically high quality and originality, and also a very good artwork, design and booklet.
