SKU 28-PRLE1526.1
Nice to see this in and out of print rarity back in print on vinyl for the very first time since its original release in 1980!
Decibel were a legendary Mexican chamber/rock group with improvisational leanings who released this very hard to find album in the late 70's, but are probably best known for their very fine contribution to the excellent and fondly remembered Recommended Records Sampler double album.

“Arguably the king band of Mexico's avant-rock, Decibel stated their radically challenging musical vision from the very first seconds of their first release "El Poeta del Ruido". All members of the basic quartet formed by drummer Castañeda, violinist Sánchez, bassist Schmidt and keyboardist Robledo double and alternate in several other instruments (reeds, woodwind, synths, percussion, etc.), and are not precisely shy in their use of console and magnetic tape effects in order to enhance and/or focus the massive weirdness encapsulated in their collective ideas. The presence of guests on string and woodwind instruments also helps to make this inscrutable repertoire a bit more colorful than your usual RIO album. Solid and bold, Decibel's RIO offering is evidently open to influences from Henry Cow, Faust (their concrete-friendly side), Univers Zero (their "1313" debut album had already been released), plus the mandatory references to Cage, Stockhausen and the Fluxus movement's Dadaist approach. The namesake opener begins with mocking sounds of birds before the instrumental tour-de- force brings a delicious set of mischievous dissonances and playful tensions based on piano, clarinet and violin over a superhumanly busy rhythm section. This is UZ on speed mixed with Magma on crack!”
