Depressing Claim


Depressing Claim were formed by four 14-year-old guys from Castellon with no idea of how to play an instrument but a lot of fantism for the sounds of the Ramones, Sex Pistols y their hometown most well-known band, Shock Treatment. That was some 7 years ago, and now, 2 LPs and some 7"s later, their line-up is still the same: Luis (guitar and vocals), Chomis (bass), juan (drums) y Tomas (vocals), plus Coky from Shock Treatment that joined them up a couple of years ago.

Depressing Claim were formed by four 14-year-old guys from Castellon with no idea of how to play an instrument but a lot of fantism for the sounds of the Ramones, Sex Pistols y their hometown most well-known band, Shock Treatment. That was some 7 years ago, and now, 2 LPs and some 7"s later, their line-up is still the same: Luis (guitar and vocals), Chomis (bass), juan (drums) y Tomas (vocals), plus Coky from Shock Treatment that joined them up a couple of years ago. Their first release was a now rare to find 7" recorded in a 4 track machine and despite of the little experiece of the band with their instruments or recording tecniques you could guess the sound that they would develope so well in the future: Energy punkrock with super catchy melodies and a lot of charm thrown in. In the summer of 1995 they recorded their debut album, called "Radio Surf", wich got a lot of good press everywhere. The inlfuences on bands like the Queers and Screeching Weasel are clear, but their excellent songwrting makes them sound unique. The recording was again in a garage with a 8 track recorder. After this LP and continuous touring in Spain they stand as leaders (and somehow pioneers) of Spanish punkpop scene. We will have to wait another 2 years to have a new LP by Depressing Claim.

In the meantime, they put out songs in several compilations and split a couple of singles like the double 7" on vinyl called "Surf Punk Latin Rumble", with the itlaian bans Deh Pills & the Chromosomes and label mates Shock Treatment. Their new LP, appeared at the beginning of 1998 on No Tomorrow and offers their fans 13 more reasons to love this band. It's called "Solo dí sí" and of course it's on No Tomorrow. The songwriting as improved, setting them as a totally personal band, miles above from the hundreds of punkpop bands appeared in the last years in Spain. The production of the LP is also much better than their other recordings, an all in all they have achieved a superb powerpop with the same hooky melodies that have made them famous but with a lot more influences than their old stuff (sure you can hear Ramones and Queers here, but also Rubinoos, Beach Boys...) and over all, with a unique personal sound. In a fair world this record would be played in the radio stations from morning to night, but this is not a fair world, is it? Go buy it. "I don't know if this is the so talked about power pop, punk rock or what, it's just a nice CD...

they are classy and full of good ideas, and they've have achieved in their first full-length work what others are unable to: mixing energy, spree and lyrics in Spanish with great melodies." (Álvaro, ZONA DE OBRAS) "...there are some hella catchy tunes on this. Amateur and fun stuff with the vocals in Spanish giving this some much needed fun (RL, MAXIMUM R'n'R) "One of the best punk-pop bands in the country... an absolute must." (Pipi, N.O.T.' ZINE) "Holy mother! The last time we heard of them they were still brats, and now, two years later, how they have improved! Nearly 20 ultra-catchy tunes with a clear influence from Queers - Screeching Weasel, and a fresh attitude." (Andrea Pomini , ABBESTIA 'ZINE) (c) http://www.notomorrowrecords.com Official site.
