El Gran Orgo

El Gran Orgo is the third EP by American post-hardcore band At the Drive-In. It was recorded and released in 1997 without the presence of Jim Ward, whose guitar duties were filled by Ben Rodriguez and Omar Rodriguez, the latter of whom had previously played bass on Acrobatic Tenement.

The Title "El Gran Orgo" is taken from one of the characters of the movie Santa Sangre by Alejandro Jodorowsky. Both Omar Rodríguez-López and Cedric Bixler-Zavala are declared fans of Jodorowsky's work.

The band have previously stated that the record company that produced this EP ripped them off and that "when you buy El Gran Orgo you do not support ATDI, you support DISHONESTY!!" and encouraged people to download or grab it.[1]
