They began as Igoagrio y Las Crestas del Extrangulano in the city of Trenque Lauquen (Buenos Aires province), around 1978. They played a sort of experimental Prog Rock, heavily influenced by Van Der Graaf Generator and Peter Hammill, something that was unusual at that time, when Genesis, Yes, ELP or Jazz Fusion were the common ground for progressive musicians. César Dominici and Sergio Sáez were the guitar players, Guillermo Robles played bass, Gustavo Collado was on drums and Néstor Polenta was the keyboard player. Around 1982, vocalist Sáez and Polenta left, and the three remaining members decided to continue under the name of Sobrecarga, inspired by the Talking Heads’s song, "The overload" (Remain in light, 1980).

At the beginning of 2017 they released their second work entitled "La coronación del fracaso terrestre", thus completing the recording of their classic compositions of the late 70's and adding to this new album 5 new songs.

The history of Igoagrio, is centered in Trenque Lauquen, a town of Buenos Aires geographically located 500 km from the city of Buenos Aires, in the territory known as Pampas plain. Between 1976 and 1983, in coincidence with the bloodiest dictatorship of our history, this city hosted a focus of cultural resistance and was a reference of many artists who "rambled" by the province. This focus was created (perhaps unintentionally) by a group of artists who developed the concept of collective creation in all its variants. From this "quest for unconscious freedom", the mythical music group "Igoagrio y las crestas del Extrangulano" emerged.

This "movement" allowed to endow with popular connotations to genres discounted until that moment: poetry, rock, underground theater, plastic; Creating a discourse of belonging to a society so heterogeneous, crossed by immigrations and Catholic religion and culturally isolated from what was happening in the country and the world. Then came the purchase of equipment and a group with which they toured several towns in the province of Buenos Aires and the rest of the country, in what constitutes a true odyssey.

This new "rockera" and artistic gestational idiosyncrasy, despised in principle by a quiet, tartar society, became, nevertheless, a foundational seed and served as a space of contention for the prevailing anguish that was experienced in a dark moment of our country , And allowed Trenque Lauquen to stop being a city "where nothing happens". To become a place where ... "Everything can happen".

Today the city has become an important center of artistic production,

Parallel to the gestation of this group of artists, but crossing the Atlantic, in the city of London, the birth of a very similar musical culture called "Progressive Music". Igoagrio, unknowingly, was creating a style in tune with artists from that country, crossed by geographies and idiosyncrasies so different. This phenomenon could corroborate the theories of Carl Gustav Jung about what he calls "Collective Unconscious", in that beyond the differences between borders and cultures, there are creative experiences shared by artists living in diverse sociological contexts.
