Their style was a Detroit-style, urgent and abrasive punk rock. La Perrera was formed in 1987 by Jimmy Díaz (drums), Xabi Garre (guitar), Mikel Serrano (bass), Gonzalo Ibáñez (vocals) and Arturo Ibáñez (guitar), and it was based in the Buenavista squat locals. In the late eighties the main punk scene, the so-called Rock Radikal Vasco was in decline, and a new generation of young bands with different music referents took up the torch. Among them, one of the most influential was La Perrera. They signed with Basati Diskak and released a 7" and a mini-LP. When the band broke up, its members split into two new bands: Nuevo Catecismo Catolico and Señor No. Today, they are remembered in the Spanish punk scene as a cult band.
