Our amigo Santi Rex asked us to post this:

Eduardo Benavente (Madrid, on October 30, 1962 - Alfaro, on May 14, 1983) was a Spanish musician. Drummer of bands like Alaska y los Pegamoides (Alaska and the Celluloses), Seres Vacíos (Empty Beings) and leader and singer of Parálisis Permanente (Permanent Paralysis), a cult band of the famous “movida madrileña” in early 80's, his early death turned it into a myth of the Spanish alternative music scene. He was only 20 years old when he died in a traffic accident while touring with his band 26 years ago today.

He recorded 5 singles and an album with Alaska y los Pegamoides, a 12" with Seres Vacíos and 2 singles (Self-sufficiency/I have a passenger and Born to dominate/Blood), an EP (I Want to be a Holy Woman) and an album (The Act) with Parálisis Permanente.

He is still considered the icon of the Spanish Punk and Goth scene.
