DRAPETOMANIA


The guitars, man...it's all about the fukkn guitars. A sharp and clean staccato attack, like '80s Italian hardcore playing Oi, but they are singing in Spanish and this shit is from Los Angeles. DRAPETOMANIA is the latest installment from the Silenzio Statico label, and if there was any doubt left as to the impact these kids are making on punks around the world (and I cannot imagine that there is a shred of doubt remaining), then one listen to "Cicatris" should erase it completely. A killer South American twist on UK82 punk rock - fukkn great of course, enjoy.
