Sin Dios biography
Dios was born in the summer of 1988 and after a
little change in its first formation, it´s built
as an anarchist ideological hardcore punk trio.
The aim of the band, from their first stepts, has
been the engagement and the diffusion of
first concerts are already in squatting houses,
owing to the idea of supporting different fights
in the self-governing areas (antifascism,
squatting, unsubmission, etc.).
1990 they edit their first, demo, "...ni
amo" (...neither owner) wich gathers up 13
hardcore political tracks, together with a
booklet containing the lirics and some comments
about the songs. 1.000 copies are editted from
this demo but the band decides not to reedit it
any more, because of the bad sound. In this
moment they start to play out of Madrid an go
across Asturias, Galicia, Euskadi, Cataluña,
Levante, Castilla and some cities in Andalucía,
always playing within the autonomous and
1991 they record, with another band, an split
L.P., "Ruido Anticapitalista"
(Anticapitalist Noise), produced by the bands and
Potencial Hardcore (alternative label). More than
3.500 copies of this L.P. are sold. Keeping the
way the band had chosen, that of political (not
only music) band.
1993 Sin Dios edit the L.P. "Alerta
Antifascista" (Antifascist Alert), produced
by several anticomercial labels and editorial
(Gato Salvaje, Potencial Hardcore, Mala Raza and
Queimada). The booklet contains their lirics and
comments, and also some old fighters of the
libertarian movement collaborations, such as
Abraham Guillén (international libertarian
economist), or Antonio Téllez (libertarian
investigator and historician) and those of some
collectives such as the "Radical Gai",
"Donnes Esmussades", or "the
Antifascist Autonomous Collective". They
sell 4.000 copies of this work.
a year, lots of concerts, and because of the
evict of the very popular Minuesa, the band is
broken up, owing to differences among the
members. After one year and a half in the
silence, the band joins again and starts to play
February '97, they record "Guerra a la
guerra" (War to war), wich will be edited in
August in this very year. This C.D. contains 19
new songs, and a 64 pages booklet. More than
13.000 are sold, wich means tha had
acknowledgement of the effort they carried out.
This C.D. is edited by Difusión Libertaria - La
Idea (wich is made up by two members of the
band), Potencial Hardcore and Queimada. It´s
also edited in Mexico and Argentina, as the
masters were transfered to anarchistic
organizations from these countries, helping them
in the financing of their activities.
this C.D. appeared, the band changed their bass,
being now the band made up by Pepe (guitar),
Canino (drum), and Pepino (bass).
May '98 the two first L.P.'s are reedited in C.D.
and cassette format, as they only existed in
vinyl. 12.000 are sold.
Dios tries to go on with their self-governing and
anticapitalism ideas, and bear severe rules in
all their work:
- the prices of
the L.P.'s are always popular (half or
less the money you pay for a commercial
L.P.). The price can be seen in the main
prices also in the concerts: the ticket
- never playing
for Institutional organizations or
of our material and selfgoverning in our
concerts (no managers).
- never looking
for personal enjoyment by means of the
LOVE AND ANTICAPITALIST FURY!
