Acorazado Potemkin – Remolino (2014)

¡Estoy la mar de contento chavales! Compré Hamlet en historieta, encargué Bonemachine y conseguí el último de mis héroes del rock local, los Acorazados Potemkin.

APRemolinoTAPASí, ya sé. Soy un consumista total. Muchas veces pienso al respecto. Muchas veces lo reflexiono mientras el azúcar fluye. Entiendo que soy un tipo consumista. ¿Qué es el consumismo? Me pregunto luego.

En la red encontré esto: “Consumismo es el afán indiscriminado por comprar cosas. Aunque no hagan falta.” Yo consumo mucho es verdad. Y cosas que no me hacen falta. Porque consumo muchos discos, películas y libros. Así mi hogar se ha transformado en un espacio inundado. No obstante, cavilo en mi defensa, si bien el objeto me interesa como tal (es decir, disfruto tenerlos entre mis manos) más es la satisfacción anímica.  

Y es que he aprendido de mí – o he construido, no estoy seguro – que no soy un coleccionista per sé. Es decir, si bien me gustan los objetos y tengo mis gemas; no es estola cosa lo que me desespera. Si no el contenido, lo abstracto que me llega al alma y me la parte mostrándome qué tan efímero soy.

APRemolinoDORSOY he perdido varias cosas, se han escapado ya sea por negligencia mía – en general es así – o por haber confiado en los chabones equivocados. La cuestión es que no ha sido tan doloroso y ni se ha transformado en un rencor presente. Para nada. Tengo otras cosas a las que aferrarme. Y, tengo para mí, que es propio de la gente golpeada y atormentada el aferrarse a las cosas y darles valor.

Tengo, también para mí, que mientras más triste y alienada está un alma, a cosas más banales le da importancia. Tal es así las fanáticas de la moda (¿Hay algo más efímero? No, si la palabra contiene el sema “pasajero”). No voy a detenerme en ellas porque siempre están ricas y es un placer cogérselas.

Hay otros que no son así. Que tuvieron en suerte descubrir (o entender, creo mejor) que la belleza es una abstracción. Que se accede mediante el arte porque es la forma de expresión que más semeja la creación. Esta en el sentido de algo oriundo ajeno al hombre por sí como lo es la naturaleza.  

La cuestión, para abreviar y no exceder los párrafos, es que soy un tipo consumista dentro de la media. Porque es imposible no serlo, de uno u otro modo, hoy en día.  Pero soberbiamente me sitúo donde los iluminados, donde los prodigios que gustan del arte. Y que simbolizan el consumo como una forma de reproducción del arte. Ya sea como difusión ya sea como asimilación e inspiración para generar más.

En ese lugar están los Acorazado Potemkin. Tipos que vienen de bandas trascendentes por calidad y significación[1]  y que siguen jugando con los sonidos y las posibilidades. La banda ya tiene un sonido. Propio. Característico e inconfundible. Son un montón de adjetivos nobles, ya sé, pero me cuesta definir con precisión porqué Acorazado Potemkin es arte.

Asique se los dejo a ustedes. Con este disco que la banda dejó en descarga libre y gratuita en su web. Aprovechen y consuman. Así, en esta forma casi abstracta como es la red. Y háganlo sin culpas hermanos, que no de otra cosa se trató este post. Acá.   

[1] Leí que Patria o muerte de Don Cornelio y la Zona es un antecedente si no piedra basal de lo que se conoció como Grunge. Interesante.

 

Sumo – Raw & Live (2014)

Posted in 2014, Argentina, En vivo, Garage, Punk, Raw, Rock, Sumo with tags , , , , , , , , on 7 julio 2014 by wirtis

Front-1 copyHello my beloved friends. Here i come again. And I come with the very first anthology specially made for this blog. Because always I have done for another one, the famous and well know Garagelatino.blogspot.com.

However this time I decided publish something here. Not for give notoriously to this blog, no friends. The reason is that I need to speak and Sumo shows it like a way to make contact. So I took my old Sumo compilation – the one I made with the song rawest from the band – do it a front cover and bring here. Only for speak friends.

Because, from time to time, I think about you. I know life goes on, we both are in different places, in different moments. I accept reality. You know that.

But I can get out of my mind the “How it would have been” between you and me. Last day I saw you out there. You were laughing so happy that I feel eager to run to hug you. And realized I don`t dare to do it. Still dream with your voice but I know we are losing our “world” (for say it somehow) because we don’t share nothing. It`s sad.

Every time I see you I feel nervously because still i`m looking for your eyes, I still searching you. How I wish could hug you in my arms, how I wish could be me with you.

But it can`t be.

We are so far, so separated that we don`t know each other.

So, fuck off.

Life sucks everyday but not for that I will kill myself. Life took you far away from me and that’s it`s inevitable. Like the fact that someday, some morning or night perhaps we will find and we won`t recognize our self. So old or so different that our days seen a fiction.

Here let you this beautiful anthology. I know you like this band. And I know you never stop by that`s why I spoke freely. Here you have: SUMORaw & Live.

 

Orkesta Popular San Bomba – Sal de tu cuerpo (2013)

Posted in 2013, Argentina, Cumbia, Folk, Orkesta Popular San Bomba, Pop on 19 junio 2014 by wirtis

sanbomba_zpsd6396936Hello my wirtianos brothers. Today i bring you La Orkesta Popular San Bomba. It`s a great argentinean band that play cumbia. Yea, fucking cumbia is one of our best genres of music. Of course, and like every other genre, is good when it`s make it with love and drugs. Good drugs, obviously.

Well La Orkesta San Bomba is a very good group that sound latinamerican, you cant`n at first sight, judge where are they from. Of course you realize they are from our land, from our continent. However it`s difficult put them in one country because they looks like everywhere and that’s was one of the thing I like it from this guys.

But wasn`t that, no way boy, that the most important thing I like from this children. The thing most exciting, for me, was they great sound of the Orkesta.

So I decided bring to you, share it with you brother. So here it is in your friendly blog: La Orkesta Popular San Bomba.

Vox Dei – Jeremías pies de plomo (1972)

Posted in 1972, Argentina, Folk, Rock, Vox Dei with tags , , , , on 4 junio 2014 by wirtis

voxdeijeremiaspiesdeploxn3Good morning my friends. Today i come back with another master piece. This time is with one classical in wirti`s collection. Yes, today I offer you “Jeremías, pies de plomo” something like “Jeremy, lead feats” from Vox Dei. I supposed you know about this boys, they are really one of classical in argentinean rock and roll. Especially with “La biblia” (The bible) the master piece of seventy rock.

Well, this one I brought today is the third album, right before The Bible. This album show the best time – at least for me – of this band, when they sound rawer but very melodiously too. The lyrical are excellent too… I thinking, maybe you boy, are reading this shit – because I know is a shit but is my way of be –  and saying: boy, Wirtis always exaggerating everything… ¿Could you, Miguel, be more calm, lees expressive and dicksucker? Because, you have to know, none of this band would ever said “thanks” to you, looser… And have to recognize it, I just a poor lonely boy.

But don`t care, don`t have to care. Never. Because this is the way – the only way – I can be.  Some time I spend a lot of time thinking about my life, thinking about the way I live my life. Am I happy? I asked myself. And, let me be honest brother, I don`t know what to say.  Only know I try it. But I think I could do better. Always think I could do it better. So I fell power less and smaller than everything, than everybody. And all do is cry. So lonely, so sad. And run to my women and say “hold me, honey, cause I’m in misery”   and my women hold me tight and together we cry.

So friend, and waste your time cause life is to fucking short.  And future come so quickly that your day soon will over. Enjoy. Don`t be like Wirtis. Here let you this great sound, open to future already and now. Vox Dei – Jeremy lead feats.

 

Xulu – Piedra piramidal (2014)

Posted in 2014, Alternativo, Argentina, Hard Rock, Houdini, Indie, San Luis, Xulu with tags , , , , , on 21 mayo 2014 by wirtis

TAPA¿Qué hubiese pasado si una banda de las características de A Perfect Circle hubiera aparecido en estas latitudes pregonando ese rock de riffs intrincados y sonidos flasheros? Seguramente habrían pasado desapercibidos y callados.

Por suerte para nosotros, A Perfect Circle nació allá, del otro lado del charco, donde la meca y el sueño se mixturan y se funden una realidad llena de posibilidades y réditos.

Con todo, y no solo por influencia sino por entenderlo como el medio más apropiado para expresar una visión estética, una búsqueda estelar; surgió – si mal no recuerdo hace ya unos dos años – en la república separatista de San Luis, Xulu. Gran banda de dialéctica punkiana devenida en flash progresivo moderno. Así, tal vez, se me ocurre que lo podría definir. Aunque me quedo corto. Siempre me quedo corto.

Y es que sí, hay una línea clara en la propuesta de estos pibes de Xulu. Porque se reconoce el referente, se aprecia un sonido familiar. Y he ahí lo bueno, porque se percibe pero es solo eso porque el sonido de Xulu es personal y propio. Las guitarras densas, las voces rasgadas, el ritmo preciso, firme. El hecho de que sean un power trío (en todo lo certero que el término conlleva) entre varias virtudes legitiman mi discurrir.

Bueno, no me voy a extender demasiado.

Huelgan las palabras, espera la música.

Acá está, para ustedes: Xulu.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Misfits – Project 1950 (2003)

Posted in Garage, Punk, Rock, The Misfits with tags , , , , , on 17 abril 2014 by wirtis

Misfits_Project_1950_FrontThe Misfits is a rock and roll legendary band. Everybody knows them. The most important records in their career were in Glen Danzig`s time. When he goes away the things weren’t the same.   However the band continues playing and punking. They sound good, they are real musicians, you know like those who practice all day and speak singing. But something is missing, something sound different. I suppose, maybe is Danzig missed, but I not so sure.

This record I bring today is in a “cover way” but the clever aspect is that are fifties’ cover. I like the topic, I have to said it but I find too much punk mood whiteout soul. Maybe is to roof my adjective, I know – and who you thing you are, Wirtis? Only a poor mama`s boy speaking from behind a desk, hiding your face, faking your identity –   but is the only  I know in English. Well, like I was saying this record didn`t like me at all.

Dreamlover was only song I enjoy. But not too much for convert “Project fifty” in one of my top list. Because I have a top list, have I ever told you, brothers? No? Well, know it.

 

 

Hablan por la Espalda – Macumba (2009)

Posted in 2009, Candombe, Garage, Hablan por la Espalda, Hard Rock, R&B, Rioplatenses, Rock, Uruguay with tags , , , , , on 27 marzo 2014 by wirtis

Hablan por la espaldaHello my brothers, here I’m again with more music, with more words and more pain. Yes because today I bring you one of this latin band that used to cry smiling. Have you hear someone of these groups, brother?? Maybe you do, if you like to looking in American continent, in south and middle part, far away from north American peace, far away from that shit. Ands close of this land where we learn to cry moving our bodies, smiling our pain.

It`s a fact that we people have to learn to crypt pain behind mask of smiling because we always have been submitted. Also quick rhythm configured genres like cumbia, guaracha y camdombe.  After came rock and roll and youngness rich music and everything began to be more crazy – I mind popularly way because art always have been crazy and tell you more, artist must be “crazy” people – and began to mix everything. Like youngness always does.

Well Hablan por la Espalda (Spoke from behind) is a perfect example of that mix: a punch of young kids rocking all over the place but playing their typical genre: camdombe. Yes sucker. Hablan por la Espalda plays camdombe but, in the same way of Chicha peruana; does with rock and roll instrumentation.

Good, a real good band is this. Have pass a long time since a brother from the web – like you or you – stop by and told me: Hey Wirtis, Bufón was a real good band but much better is this one! And send me this record.

I let the time goes, I spend a few years earing another stuff. Because i`m a human been, because was in other fly. But one day, one good day y remember this band and I was looking something powerful, so thought: maybe Miguel, give Hablan por la Espalda a chance and made it. Thanks god made it because is a great band with personality. They sound raw, they sound honestly and they sound latinos. So here I let you this beautifull disc for you: Hablan por la Espalda – Macumba.

L.A. Guns – Cuts (1992)

Posted in 1992, EEUU, Glam, Hard Rock, L.A. Guns, Rock with tags , , , , , on 9 marzo 2014 by wirtis

Hello you fucking looser, today i bring you a Little bit of glam rock. Do you know about this esthetic movement, man? No? I supposed that, so I’m going  to explain.

L.A. guns - 1992 - Cuts

Glam rock is a rock and roll movement born it in lately seventies, with groups like Hanoi Rocks, The Dictators, The New Yoks Dolls and the fucking and ugly pioneers of all this movement, at list, in the very beginning: Kiss (excuse me boy but I real don´t like this group). From this band – except from Hanoi Rocks; the glam movement took the way of dress. I mean very colorful clothes, a lot of makeup and a machismo. So, as you can see, glam rock is a strange mix.

At beginning glam music was softer than pioneers groups. But, in nineties, when grunge arrive and produced a change of paradigms groups had to invent their self or die. A lot of group dies. I raise my glass and drink to that.

But others, like this band to day I offer you, could survive in musical business. Some of them, with honestly and work, others selling their ass.  The L.A. Guns are in first one, of course. And, now, I’m going to tell you why I think that way: Because,   L.A. Guns have played a real hard rock, with heavy attitude and raw feeling. Because L.A. Guns have evolved, over the years, their sound. If you listen last stage (without Tracii Guns), you`ll find a very good band, with their own sound beyond musicians. And, in last step, I want to say that L.A. Guns have maintain is personality beyond Guns and Roses – of course that, their parental with famous band have give them access  to bussnies but, like I said, they have earned with work and heavy hard rock. Ah, another thing I love from this boys is that their music is very street.

So, until now, you should have learned that glam rock is a rock and roll movement that`s characterize for ridiculous clothes and heavy guitars. You should have to know, too, that L.A. Guns are one of the best and genuine band in this movement, a band that have recorded a real, real good disc that you have to listen, at list, once.

Here I let you the last from their golden age, with their classical formation. For me is great, not for all the bullshit I just told you, no brother. Is great for me because makes me remember when I meet her, the first time a saw her blue eyes.

So, here I let you this gem of rock and roll, a great and very short Ep with two cover and two original songs. Enjoy and get it: L.A. Guns – Cuts.

Maxi Amué – La frecuencia del olvido (2014)

Posted in 2014, Argentina, Electrónica, Indie, Maxi Amué, Mendoza, Pop, Rock with tags , , , , , , on 15 febrero 2014 by wirtis

Buenas noches amigos rockeros. Hoy les traigo a un paisano mío, a un pibe que ya antes presenté con su grupo pero hoy vuelve en su faceta solista. Me refiero a Maxi Amué, vocalista de Orbis Tertuis.

Image

Conocí a Amué una tardecita en el Le Parc. Me pareció un tipo muy afable y conversador. Le conté que administraba un blog y que había publicado su primer disco con Orbis Tertius. El loco se copó, me agregó de amigo en Face y me compartió “Pulsador” – último trabajo a la fecha de la banda – para publicar. (Muy buen disco, por cierto. Está acá si lo querés escuchar.)

De ahí en adelante ha sido poca la conversación. La verdad es que no somos amigos ni lo conozco más allá de lo dicho. Sin embargo, por esa especie de vidriera insolente que es el face, me entero de sus estados y decires. Es así que de un tiempo a esta parte he ido percibiendo en Amué un desasosiego in progress que, creo, es el leit motiv de este disco.

Y es que ya no hay día de sol acá, en La frecuencia del olvido, amigos. Más bien percibo a un poeta solitario, en confrontación con el mundo en general y con el de la música en particular. Espeta, Amué,  contra los rock and roll stars, contra los formalismos y prototipos sociales y los miedos y vanidades personales.

Un disco intimista, confesional es este que hoy les comparto. Un disco visceral que desprende de su ser.

Respecto al modo musical predomina un ambiente electrónico de loops y tecnología que ya venía experimentando desde Pulsador. Aspecto, para un servidor, muy pero muy bueno porque hacen del disco una poderosa y visceral obra. Con mucho ritmo y vitalidad.

Gran disco. Más porque no lo vas a conseguir tan fácil: es del under mendocino, es de la periferia desértica, sale así, por la red, lejos de sellos y sin propaganda, pero libre y gratuito. Por eso merece ser difundido, por eso merece ser escuchado.

Acá esta: Maxie Amué – La frecuencia del olvido.

The Cramps – Flamejob (1994)

Posted in 1994, Blues, EEUU, Garage, Psicobilly, Punk, R&B, Raw, Rock, Rockabilly, Surf, The Cramps with tags , , , , , , , , , on 27 enero 2014 by wirtis

Good night brothers. Today i bring you something classic, something you have to know if you are a really rock and roll fan. Yes, you sucker, today I bring you The Cramps ¿Have you listen this band, boy?

ImagenOk, I’ll tell you a little about The Cramps. The history began in 1972, in Sacramento (California) when Poison Ivy (Kristy Wallace) meets Lux Interior (Erick Purkhiser). They were two kids fascinated by obscure 50 noise rock and roll and free mind theory’s. So they found their selves in University, in “Art and shamanism” business.

Early they were playing and sharing music. Poison Ivy began to play guitar and Lux Interior to sing. From the beginning they were different to any other band, because they sound dirty and raw, always imitating old band sounds. In fact, brother, you can even imagine garage revival or psycobilly without The Cramps. So important is their function in rock and roll history. Of course, in underground history, but that`s why The Cramps are here and never is going be here shit like Tan Biónica ¿Right?

Well, is not my intention to make a long declaration of knowledge here, no brother. My intention is explain   to you what is what I’m sharing and what is it part in music. This record, Flamejob is the first (and I’m not pretty sure but I thing is the only too) album made for a multinational company: Warner. Yes, so high they arrive but, like always, their sound was so nasty, so god dam dirty that company fired them. So they send Warner to hell and made their own studio. There, they recorded a few disc more.

In 2009 Lux Interior passes away at the age of 62. The rest is history. So here I let you this one, a very, very good album, full of raw and dirty music. Enjoy Flamejob by The Cramps. And enjoy Andre Willians too.
