Conceived in 1992, Mutantes Melancólicos is the project behind Gustavo Madrid´s mastermind. The one he used as a vehicle to create new ways of making music without losing his personal imprint; pushing towards constant change and evolution. Guest musicians, free improvisation as the expressive force, and no formulas repeated led him to transform a style that was already his own.
The first traces of this project can be heard on a recorded version of “Dirt”, a song by The Stooges, that remains unreleased. Some critics claimed to find the influence of the appetite for low-budget productions; others found a dark spirit without optimism. We can say that both points of view are accurate to describe this group´s sound, but when a bit of black comedy is added as a third ingredient to blend and empower the mix, that´s when this mutant music is brought to life.
The first one of his 5 albums was published on cassette in 1993 and some of his songs appeared in 2 compilation albums: Unknown BA on Beat Records and Petronilo, an underground fanzine. Today, each one of those 5 original productions is available for the first time on CD with previously unreleased bonus tracks; besides, a sixth album with 16 tracks of unpublished material is added to the discography. Housed in carefully designed vinyl record replica covers, audio digitally remastered from the original stereo master tapes; each title is published in strictly limited editions of 1000 to document the career of a genuine artist whose commitment leads towards new and different sounds.
