MONSTRUACION is a band that only recorded two albums between 1987 and 1993, but even so, they marked a lot the hardcore punk movement of the Barcelona area. One of its members was (and is) Josep Urpí Gausachs , who had already formed part of the legendary bands like Anti- Dogmatiks, Subterranean Kids or L' Odi Social, to name the most popular. The first MONSTRUACION album was actually a recorded cassette in poor condition and very low budget. Above but his energy and his lyrics were so received by the youth, some songs became anthems of the hardcore punk scene late 80s, 90s and even nowadays. Anecdotally mention the ultra-fast Bob Dylan cover "Times are ching" which was sung many Saturday nights for punks, skins, squatters, dreadlocks and anti-establishment youth from 1987 to the present. It's second album was infinitely less popular but paradoxically musically enjoyed greater originality, technical quality and production work study. In 2010 MONSTRUACION come back and they still play live concerts.
