G.R.B. started out as a quartet in Barcelona in 1984. Its members were old veterans: the former ÚLTIMO RESORTE rhythm section of Juanito (bass) and Miguel "Mike" (drums); ex-DRAMA DEL HORROR (a band as well as a key fanzine in BCN) guitarist Alberto, and FRENOPATICSS' singer, Ángel (who also used to be in Klan Korrupto, a loutish punk band). They adopted the initials of the Barcelona Restaurateur Association (Gremio de Restauración de Barcelona), whose notices were often seen hanging on the walls of Barcelona's restaurants and bars: "G.R.B." sounded good to them. Sometimes they answered the oft-asked question of "What do the initials stand for?" with flippant answers like, "Scrambled eggs with bacon" (In colloquial Spanish: "Güevos Revueltos con Bacon"). They are pioneers of the hardcore punk scene in Barcelona, as other bands Ultimo Resorte, Shit S.A., Anti-dogmatikss, L'Odi Social and Subterranean Kids... Members: Ángel Fernández (Vocals), Strong (Guitar), Alberto Collazo (Guitar), Juan R. Ferrando (Bass), Miquel Coll (Drums).
