G3G Records was founded in 1989 in Barcelona by 3 people including Raeo bass player Gat. They published many Pascal Comelade records as well as releases by Macromassa, Juan Crek, Victor Nubla or Raeo, and the famous Tarot 7 inch series. G3G’s first compilation, Trying To Make It To The End Of The Century, published in 1991, is a succession of spoken word tracks and rock songs or instrumentals. There’s a certain film noir mood throughout the album thanks to dark, urban rhythms and grim, almost risqué texts – or equivocados, as Emilio Cubeiro puts it in the opening track, a brilliant, homoerotic 8mn narrative by Spanish poet Cubeiro, with cinematographic music by Raeo, the trio of Antón Ignorant, Gat, and Mark Cunningham, whose delicate trumpet playing is also heard on several other tracks like a dotted line across the LP. Another pièce de résistance is Lydia Lunch’s intense, intimate confessions titled Last Gasp with Spanish musicians providing appropriate background.
