MARIACHI EL BRONX - S/T 10TH ANNIVERSARY (Smoke Clear Vinyl)
Vinyl LP pressing. Tenth anniversary edition. 2009 debut album from the LA punk band. NME gave it 8 of 10 stating 'When one of our favorite hardcore bands announced they'd been working on a mariachi project, we wondered if it was for comedic value. On our side of the Atlantic this venture could have been greeted with a wall of confused silence, but the LA outfit have achieved something special. And not just musically; they've allowed US a small education in traditional Hispanic sounds and informed US that LA has not one but two beating hearts, blending the sort of creativity into it's people most Hollywood composers would kill for.'
