Radio - Sunday, April 10th, 2016

We started off with Grand Malota who are from Panama and we heard the song “La Voz de Los Muertos” and we played them because the Panama papers were easily the most newsworthy story of the week with the revelations of all these rich people hiding their money in tax evasion schemes. We have already seen the Prime Minister of Iceland resign and David Cameron is implicated through his father. There are ten other heads of state in trouble so we will see how this story pans out. Listen to the show on the player above or download an MP3 here.

I was reading an interview in the latest issue of MRR with Ricardo Melendez about the Punk scene in Colombia in an article titled “Bogota Punk” It is the first of a three part series. But in the interview Ricardo writes about some of the early bands and about the bands to follow. COMPLOT were the first self-designated punk band to come out and play. They were from Medellin and they covered the BUZZCOCKS’ song “Love Battery”.

COMPLOT - Love Battery (Bootleg)

A compilation came out in 1988 called “El Cartel del Punk Medallo” which features so many great hardcore bands from Medellin at the time

When asked about who was the most pioneering bands were Ricardo said Morgue and La Pestlilencia so here are songs by each of those bands

LA PESTILENCIA – Fango (Mort Discos)
MORGUE – Dejenme

Morgue were from Bogota and were the long lasting band surviving as a band for 22 years. Their songs were critical and they sang about life in the city. The family tree image on the side come from a blog called Blog Anti and became a huge resource for researching punk in Colombia.

In the mid-90’s a compilation came out by bands from Bogota called “El Bogotazo” which featured four bands on it.

Tonight's demo feature is a new band featuring members of Vacant State, Big Crux and others. Sorry State described the tape as "a band out of the west coast of Canada who play a kind of rock-inflected hardcore punk. Despite some very gruff vocals that remind me of 86 Mentality or Ebro from Punch in the Face, the music is super catchy to the point where you could almost call it garage-punk... I'm old so I'm apt to compare the music to something like Social Circkle or Regulations, but younger people probably have more recent reference points of bands who play a similar style (maybe even Coneheads or Cal and the Calories?). Regardless, the combination of the gruff, tough-sounding (yet still really catchy) vocals and the more overtly melodic music is a real winner and bound to please anyone into either catchy 80s-sounding hardcore or some of catchier bands in the recent oi!-inflected hardcore style."
