Gaucho studio 3 session

I have been trying to set up this Gaucho session for years now. This is the third or fourth time that we have had a session booked, so I wasn't sure that this session would ever happen. And when it did I felt like we had accomplished the impossible. The band has recently become a three piece. Jose is a studio 3 session vet. He was in as the singer of Eating Glass and as the drummer of S.H.I.T. and now as the drummer of Gaucho. The same can be said about Warren playing in various studio 3 locations with Molested Youth, Bored Stiff, and Urban Blight. Leo, the singer and bass player, has never been in. Growing up in Colombia Leo's influence are throughout the lyrics and the sound of this band. It becomes obvious in the interview. Gaucho has a demo and a new ep on Iron Lung Records titled "Desplazados". Here are the songs we recorded:

1. El Dia Final
2. Corrupción (Corruption)
3. Sistema de Mierda (System of Shit)
4. Cuerpas Mutilados (Mutilated Bodies)
5. Gritos de Guerra (Screams of War or Warcry)
6. Brutalidad Policia (Police Brutality)
7. Demonios
8. Cerebro Podrido
9. New song about Cannibalism

11. EXD ID

The session was recorded by Ian Wilkinson and videotaped by Aldo Erdic.

The Olympics has started and hearing stories about the Brazillionaires and the culture of corruption behind the Games it made me think that we saw only the polished version of Brazilian culture with samba and pop singers. Brazil has a long tradition of protest music with the earliest punk coming out of South America being tributed to Ohlo Seco. The singer started the first punk record star in Sao Paulo, but they were also behind "Gritos Suburbanos" the first punk record to come out of South America. Here are the early years of Brazilian hardcore.
