Siniestro Total are a Spanish band formed in Vigo in 1981. They started with a punk rock style and evolved into a more rock style during the 80s and beginning of the 90s and 00s
The band is formed after a traffic accident in December 1981, in Vigo (Galicia, Northwest of Spain), with a iconoclastic and neo-dadaist approach in the lyrics: galician punk rock against general boredom.
In January 1982 they send a demo with twelve songs to the radio program "This is not Hawai", presented by Jesús Ordovás in Radio 3 (Radio Nacional de España).
In June the same year the EP "Ayudando a los enfermos" ("Helping the sick people") is published with DRO, one of the new independent record companies that arised at that time.
In November they publish their first LP, "¿Cuándo se come aquí?" ("When do we eat here?") with 15 songs recorded in three days. It was a success in the alternative market.
In January 1983 they play live in Rock Ola (Madrid), an important concert venue for the new bands around the country. They record two songs for the program "Caja de ritmos" in Televisión Española. Due to censorship the program is canceled.
