Discos Imprescindibles es el nombre que Rafa Skam (componente de VACACIONES y THE YELLOW MELODIES, y autor del fanzine ‘El Planeta Amarillo’) tenía pensado ponerle a una compañía discográfica, si es que algún día cometía la locura de emprender una aventura de este tipo, y ese día llegó, y así el segundo álbum de VACACIONES, ‘Emmaboda’, se convirtió en la primera referencia del sello.

Como bien dice el nombre de la discográfica, todas las referencias se antojan imprescindibles, aunque de momento no hay planes de lanzamientos futuros, por lo que hasta ahora podemos hablar tan sólo de una función de autoedición, que cualquier día puede crecer y extenderse a la edición de grupos afines.

Discos Imprescindibles es un sello con un origen y un fin románticos: los discos y grupos que pegan en el catálogo son aquellos que más emocionan a su creador, y que por alguna u otra razón suelen pasar desapercibidos para la gran mayoría; podemos encontrar grupos afines en esos CDRs recopilatorios que acompañan a los números del fanzine ‘El Planeta Amarillo’.

No existe ningún fin lucrativo en el sello, además de que hoy en día no tiene sentido. Lo que da sentido a la existencia de Discos Imprescindibles es la necesidad de manifestarse y de dar a conocer propuestas musicales exquisitas.

Quizás por la experiencia de haber trabajado varios años en Elefant Records, por esa deformación profesional, un día imaginó Rafa que creaba un sello y que su primera referencia sería un precioso vinilo 7” de color azul del grupo barcelonés FLIRT, con las 4 canciones de su primera maqueta… ¡esa será siempre la primera referencia idílica y soñada! porque la primera referencia real (DIMP-001) es el segundo álbum de VACACIONES, ‘Emmaboda’, que asume asimismo el papel de carta de presentación del sello. Eso sí, este disco no habría sido editado sin la importantísima ayuda y colaboración de Autopop (subsello de Elefant), sin la cuál lo de Discos Imprescindibles continuaría siendo un sueño… un sueño que se hacía realidad en 2005! Y que va publicando discos de THE YELLOW MELODIES uno tras otro, en DIGITAL, CD y VINILO.

 

HISTORY:

Discos Imprescindibles (‘Essential Records’) is the name that Rafa Skam (member of VACACIONES and THE YELLOW MELODIES, and the author of ‘El Planeta Amarillo’ Fanzine) thought of naming an indie label, if one day he was mad enough to create one, and that day finally came! and the second album by VACACIONES, called ‘Emmaboda’, turned out to be the very first reference of the new label.

As the label name itself shows, all the references appear to be absolutely essential, altough until now we can just say it is a label to release their own records, but any day the label can grow up and spread to release other fantastic records and bands.

Discos Imprescindibles have a romantic origin and aim: you can guess the bands that could join the catalogue by knowing his creator’s (Rafa Skam) likes, and you can get to know this by looking up in the CDR compilations that come with ‘El Planeta Amarillo’ fanzine that Rafa makes.

The label hasn’t got a lucrative aim. That even has no sense nowadays. What gives sense to Discos Imprescindibles is the need to make new shiny and exquisite proposals to be more known.

Maybe as Rafa has been working on Elefant Records for some years, he once thought that someday he would start a label and the first reference would be a beautiful blue 7” vinyl by a band from Barcelona called FLIRT, with the 4 songs from their first demo… that will always be the first dreamed release… but the real first record (DIMP-001) has been the second album by VACACIONES, ‘Emmaboda’, which is also the introduction reference of the new record company. And this adventure has been possible thanks to Autopop (an Elefant Records’ sub-label), whose help and collaboration has been totally essential… to make Discos Imprescindibles be finally possible! Now the label is releasing records by THE YELLOW MELODIES, on CD, DIGITAL and VINYL!
