For the discerning shit-fi connoisseur, I present Hasart Arte Punx!, an eight band compilation from South America (I think?). Background on this one would be appreciated since there is none with the tape itself, just 60 minutes of primitive punk and hardcore. POLUCION SONORA are bouncy dual vocal pogo punk, and are followed up by some of the most challenged punk I've heard from G.P.N.V. and the awkward out-of-tune sounds of DEFECTO MISERIA. Probably the best tunes on the tape are from KE SE RINDA TU MADRE, urgent male/female fronted hardcore and those are followed by the painful P.P. SERMON Y LOS ESKATALITICOS, who carefully walk that line between awfully brilliant and just plain awful...the intensity is real (but so is the ineptitude). APROPOS features the most excruciating female shrieks this side of KRUNCHIES, and their three tracks might be the most trying on the tape (though to be fair, that might have more to do with the bizarrely treated recording and the fact that their songs are at the end of this hour of madness), EL CRIMEN DEL OTRO are the closest Hastart Arte Punx! comes to traditional hardcore, and even that is a stretch....and then there is PICHI CUERVOS. Noisy, raw, fukkd sounds from a completely different punk dimension, these maniacs crank out three bizarre tunes...and then there is one completely manic uncredited masterpiece in the middle of their chunk of songs (this would be track #23 for those who are still with me). I can't tell if this is an accident, a magnetic tape malfunction or an unearthed work of art, but for one minute and 47 seconds I am perplexed and mesmerized. This tape is not for the cautious, but rather for the curious.
