You never know where your next recommendation is going to come from, which is why it pays to be open to nearly everything... for instance, who'd have predicted that I would become aware of outrageous garage punk from Mexican/Australian party animals, out now on a French record label (Casbah Records)? And yet, here we are:
There's not a lot to say about this record - good luck understanding, much less analyzing, the lyrics... It's as lo-fi and breakneck as any garage punk you are likely to hear this year, and features distorted guitars, undecipherable Spanish/English lyrics, and also distorted guitars.
In other words, it's fantastic. My favorite tracks are the nearly 4:00 "Los Perros" - a guitar distortion workout of epic proportions, and the 1:55 "Hijo Del Mal" - which reminds me of Johnny Thunders' Heartbreakers played through the amp that fell off the back of Jackie Brenston's Rocket 88.
