LA BANDA TRAPERA DEL RIO started in 1976 in Cornella, Catalonia (Spain). First spanish punk-rock band ever and also first rock band to write songs in catalan language, “Ciutat podrida” or "Dona" for example. After two albums they disbanded in 1982. Ten years after, in 1992, they returned with two new albums and some tours and disbanded again in 1996 to come back again in 2016. Then they changed the name for OFICIAL MATUTE with a sound more Rock´n´Roll oriented. In fact, even the members of the band affirm they were not and are not punks but just young, poor and rock lovers. They do not dressed like british punks at all, but they played a kind of crude and rude rock & roll which reminded a lot bands like Dead Boys, Richard Hell or Dictators with lyrics about poverty, heroin, crime, prostitution, etc. During more than 25 years the majority of punk / hardcore scene, rock´n´roll press and society in general seem forgot this essential band which lived with no glory from 1976 to 1982. Since 2.000 all things have changed and LA BANDA TRAPERA DEL RIO has appeared some times on TV, have a bio book, a bio film and different re-issues of live concerts, demos, rare tracks and compilations. Since 2016 the band currently make live concerts.
