Huerque Mapu – Cantata Montonera (1974)

Hoy les traigo un disco hermoso, un disco que voy a usar para invitarlos a un evento: Amor sí, Macri no! En estos tiempos Montoneros_Frentede definiciones, en estos tiempos de militancia aguerrida y valiente es necesario poner el pecho y salir a defender los ideales. No es fácil, hordas de divergentes están al acecho, preparados para descalificar y ningunear cualquier tipo de actividad que implique la militancia comprometida con un proyecto político y social.

Es verdad, muchos se sienten cansados, aburridos y hastiados de la arenga política. Y sin embargo, esos son los que después se quejan sin entender que ese día a día será afectado por las decisiones – distracciones – que ellos voten sin recapacitar. Así, caminar las calles defendiendo el proyecto es una tarea ardua, que hacemos entre muchos, disipados en diásporas que convergen en un mismo ideal.

Dice Marcelo Marmat Padilla, hablando acerca de un arribista de pluma barata y oportunista, que el radicalismo no tiene quién le escriba. Y yo concuerdo con él. Y no es solo en el radicalismo que se da tal característica. Sino en casi todos los partidos políticos fuera del Peronismo. ¿Por qué pasa esto? La respuesta es simple, aunque dura: ningún partido político tiene épica. La “izquierda” arengando resultados que beneficiarán a los poderosos, pareciera que pretende que la gente sufra durante un periodo de modo tal que aprendan(mos) algún tipo de lección que ellos suponen debemos tener. Lejos de gestar empatía y compromiso con la gente se mueven desde el terrorismo y el miedo. Los radicales, vestigios de una época peor que la que amenaza venir, son impresentables que disfrazan su carencia de ideologías en slogans de cambio y felicidad. Y nos regalan globos de colores que remiten tanto a los espejos de colores españoles como a las fiestas exclusivas de los que tienen más. No hay épica en la desigualdad, en el oportunismo, en el hambre de muchos o en la exclusividad.

Nosotros, el pueblo peronista, decidimos tomar la calle y militar. Porque somos los de abajo los que defendemos el proyecto porque creemos que la patria es el otro y que un estado de cosas más justo es posible. Y eso es épico.

Montoneros_ContratapaY es que el Peronismo se construyó desde la épica, el Peronismo soportó la proscripción, la desaparición y el ninguneo. Y sin embargo siempre se reconstruyó como un movimiento social desde abajo y Eso es lo que queremos compartir y difundir desde Amor sí, Macri no! Tal vez sería mejor hablar de Amor sí, Scioli también que en definitiva, desde nuestra perspectiva, es lo que representa. No somos ingenuos, apoyamos un proyecto, defendemos derechos ganados. Para defenderlos, tenemos cita en el Prado de Salud del Parque General San Martín, el sábado 14 de noviembre a las 17 hs. Música en Vivo, Ferias, Talleres, Mucha Reflexión, Debates, Asambleas espontaneas, Teatro, Danza, Actividades para niños y más cosas se propone llevar a cabo como un modo de militar y de defender lo que tanto costó conseguir. Esto también es épico.

Ahí estaré leyendo poesía junto a otros poetas comprometidos que me enorgullecen e incentivan a militar. Les dejo, para ir paladeando el evento, para ir inflando el pecho de épica peronista, el legendario disco que grabó Huerque Mapu, La cantata Montonera. Una obra bella, genial, producto de esa épica que generan los movimientos populares como el Peronismo. También les dejo las letras y el link a la historia de este grupo y de este disco que son más que interesantes. Saludos amigos y pasen el sábado por el parque General San Martín, acompáñennos a defender el proyecto nacional y popular.

Acorazado Potemkin – Remolino (2014)

Posted in 2014, Acorazado Potemkin, Argentina, Folk, Hard Rock, Indie, Pequeña Orquesta Reincidentes, Punk, R&B, Raw, Rioplatenses, Rock on 30 julio 2014 by wirtis

¡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.

 

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.

 

Rupa & The April Fishes – Este mundo (2009)

Posted in 2009, Cumbia, EEUU, Folk, Francia, Funk, Música del mundo, R&B, Rupa & The April Fishes with tags , , , , , on 6 enero 2014 by wirtis

Hola hermanos. Este es el primer post del año. Decía ayer en blogspot, al realizar ídem acto, que publicaba un disco potente, con mucho garaje punk porque quería destacar el espíritu del blog que, lejos de menguar, seguirá potente en este 2014. Bueno, hoy, acá, quiero hacer lo mismo pero con una banda distinta, con un género folderdistinto porque el mensaje – si bien similar, propio de una misma cosmovisión – es que en wordpress Garagelatino seguirá con su política de apertura y difusión de todos los ritmos que generen algún sentir en mi triste corazón.

Para representar tal sentir, para graficar lo que busco decir, les he traído el segundo disco de Rupa & The April Fishes. No sé si conocen la banda. Lo mismo les cuento. Estos chicos son de San Francisco, mixturan diversidad de géneros como el klemer, la cumbia, el rock, el reggae y el folk para trasmitir un mensaje de pasajes melancólicos pero optimista al fin. Otra cosa interesante de esta banda es que cantan en español, francés e inglés. Muy bueno.

Bien amigos, como les decía la idea no es otra que proponer un espacio que funcione como una válvula al constante devenir de Wirtis por el garaje, a mi tortuosa mente punk que me aliena en el ruido, que no me deja pensar ni escribir. Por eso necesité este espacio, por eso respaldo tanto este blog.

Me voy. Les dejo a Rupa, les dejo un poco de poesía y un poco de rock. Para que empiecen este año con buena vibra y mucho, mucho amor. Que los deposite arriba, que los mantenga gomosos y sin dormir. Rupa and The April FishesEste mundo.

Blackmore’s Night – Shadow Of The Moon (1997)

Posted in 1997, Blackmore's Night, Folk, Melódicos, UK with tags , , , on 13 noviembre 2013 by wirtis

Hello my friends. Here i come again. Once more for bring you some justice…. ¡Ja,ja! Got you mother fucker. It`s just a trick, Wirtis doesn`t become in a police man. Doesn`t matter how he`s look like ¿Right? The only thing that really matters is what we do, because aren`t words who defined us, are our acts who speaks about us.

????????????????????Well, before I’m going down to hell I want to share with all of you a little bit of music. This time I bring something appropriated – if you let me say – because the ambient remind medieval times, when magicians and witches where in every place. Thanks god he (yes, I mind HE) comes with truths and light and save all of us. So with christianity ended darkness. Or come darkness, I don`t know. And I don`t care because I come here only to speak about music and art. That`s what really matters in life, brother. And girls too are important, of course. In this days in very in love with a beautiful little girl who name like the sky and looks like hell but I’m too fucking old, I’m too fucking committed in a relationship and she have no idea about me and my way of feel. Or maybe she has it, because I have tell her a lot stupidities trying to looks like a clever and sexy guy. The reality is that I’m a fucking looser who doesn`t set in my ways.  So I spend my days thinking about an impossible love, about an impossible future with a woman who is clever, beautiful and young (¡Oh! So much young than me, bró). All that stuff, maybe you are thinking right now aren`t important when love is around ¿Right? But things, in real life brother, aren`t so easy, because Wirtis is now in another moment of his life, Wirtis is thinking in form a family, in let out drugs (specially cocaine that is ruining me) and become in a grow up and seriously person. And this little girl is beginning university, she is meeting a lot of interesting and fun people; summarizing, she is in a different moment than me brothers. So, in the hypothetical case that she looks at me (¡Oh glory day!), she only going to find an old man who is too much in his ways. That`s fact brothers, there you have my truth. So I’m too much in sadness. I`m living in a hell of continuously yearn. Ok, let`s continuous with what we come to do here: share music.

However the facts are that Blackmore`s Night sound like a medieval witch with a care full guitarist. And the reality is similar to that because here play Ritchie Blackmore (¿You didn`t realized until now, looser?) and we all know the guy is a fucking hysterical maniac who thing live in older times, when catholicism domains (sound like today this idea…) and people died in the street whiteout careless or love (still sound like today, fuck).

Ok, I’m not going to continue with comparisons, I only want to say this record is a beautiful piece of melodically music, with great melodies and better voices. The girl (because is a chic who sing here) use her voice to give that epic sound to Blackmoore`s Night. Well you sucker, another one for your collection. Another one for free, like always likes to do. Far away from mainstream, close to everyone who loves art. Here you have brother: Blackmoore`s Nights.

Iorio & Flavio – Peso argento (1997)

Posted in 1997, Argentina, Folk, Heavy Metal, Iorio & Flavio, Rock with tags , , , , , , on 27 mayo 2013 by wirtis

Hello my lovely friends. Today I bring you a great record by two excellent musicians: “Peso argento” by Iorio & Flavio. Great record published in late nineties, in 1997 for be correct. This is a different album from what we were used to in that time with this guys. Iorio already had been made foldersome stuff like this but not so radical like in this album.

Well like I said it was ninety seven Flavio just broke up with Los Fabulosos Cadillacs and Iorio were living his moment of major glory with Alamfuerte. He was finding the way: make some heavy rocks and some cool song but, of course Iorio is nationalist guy who don`t accept nothing different, so he never going to make a ballad in traditional way. So he began to make folk in Hermética and saw the treat pay his counts. So when break up with Hermética and form Almafuerte he began to record folk songs. In tango and zamba way. And he did it very well. Specyally in this album where Flavio`s talent give strong and deep to music.

Here we are going to find two excellent covers Mal Bicho (by Flavio) and Gil Trabajador (by Iorio). And we are going to find too a collection of very good song that never seems (at list for me) to pass. Very good album for begin the week with strong and powerful brothers. Listen to Wirtis and download this album because it`s one of the best from Iorio. You already know he have change along the years until converse in a real sucker old man. I don`t like him or his attitude like you sees my dear friend, but that doesn`t matter in fact I real like this album. So here I bring you and for share with a young girl that enjoys this kind of music (I never could imaginate that you are rock and roll lover with your angel face) and want to hear this album. Here you have brothers. Enjoy it. Embrace it. And prey for Wirti`s soul. See you bro. Here you have: Iorio & Flavio.

Extrachinato y Tú – Poesía básica (1997)

Posted in 1997, España, Extrachinato y Tú, Folk, Hardcore, Heavy Metal, Pop, Rock, Sinfónico with tags , , , , on 9 marzo 2013 by wirtis

Extrechinato y Tu - Poesía Básica (front)Hello you fucking loosers. Here i come. Once more. I `ll gone full your life with music, art and beautiful of life. Yes friends, this is a place for free art and music`s traffic.

This time I bring you a master piece from Spain. A disc that born when Chinato meet heavy rock and roll band Extremoduro and Platero y Tú. They find common point of view and decided make something together. At the first they began to give shows around Spain. But, early, appear the idea of make an album together.

That one I bring for you today. That one I share with all of you. Album is a very unique album because have a mix between poetry, heavy metal, symphonic and pop. Result is very, very good. I like this album. Not for listening every day, but, time to time, when I want something different, with is own personality I listen this.

The lyrics are real good. It`s have truly poetry and feeling. Music accompanies with excellent hard rock riff and more rock and roll (in Platero y Tú way) makes this disc  deserve be in Garagelatino. So here I let you brothers. Open your ears and pay attention to verses in this one. See you fuckers, in a few days or when my mood wants.

So here i let you: Extrechinato y Tú. And meet revolutionary spanish poetry, dear.

 

 

Mariana Päraway – Los peces (2012)

Posted in 2012, Argentina, Folk, Indie, Mariana Paraguay, Mendoza, Rock with tags , , , , , , on 11 febrero 2013 by wirtis

tapa cd2 Hello friends. Today I come with something from my place: Mariana Paraguay, a beautiful girl that make music in intimate mood. I hear this young lady one afternoon, when I was in a middle of a LSD trip, running from the devil. I remember we were in my cousin`s car. He was with a friend (AKA el gordo, like he uses to name himself) in the front of the car. Some kind of heavy music was sounding and my cousin and his friend were eating candy at full hands. I was looking and smoking.  At the same time we were driven in La Florida snails, very fast (faster than 404 peugeot let us) and, when I was looking by the window I asked: – this street is one hand only ¿no? And el Gordo tell me, looking in front of; jaja! This has two yellow lines…! And both started to laugh of me. I felt things going wrong. Above they were eating more candy and faster, the picture remember me “Chihiro trip”, when Chihiro watch his parents become in pigs, eating without control and driven directly to tunnel entrance.  This were my LSD`s scene.  So I started to feel bad, I said: – man, I don`t feel very good, take me home – said to my cousin. We can`t, Miguel, we are in the middle of La Florida, in a hell trip man. And you are very far from home and, you know, I won`t ride you till there… – Answer my cousin. Jaja!! Laughs el Gordo and continue eating candy, with his hand full and his mouth open, showing green and yellow stuff. This is like a psychedelic trip (I that moment I thought in Bonzo and his yonky nouvelle. I don`t know why: I really don`t like that kind of apologetically stuff. Or maybe was this the reason why); but more nasty and real, extremely real. The fear took me and I went out from the car and started to run to the water, looking for redemption or peace, I really don`t know. The thing is I need to run away from that boys and their fantastic way to eat candies. The music was so high that drive me crazy. But suddently, my cousin, put something different, a sweet music, in folk indie mood. And, like peace really exist, I became quiet. One relaxing melody and a beautiful voice bring me, again, to sweet trip: What is this, cousin, I asked, when I stop my run away and came to car again. Mariana Paraguay, Miguel, do you like it? Yes, I said in cool mood. And from here the trip was good, so good with this girl`s music that I become a fan from her.

400471_335809636514050_453312341_nSo I copy her disc and return to Mendoza listening again and again her music. Because there is a great thing in her music: the melodies are quiet, sweet and sympathies but her lyric is raw, punk and savage. So, that combinations – that makes me remember Lhasa de Sela and all the great women rockers- is perfect for me because show a real artistic conception about music, far from stupidities and dead meet that, in general, try to sale us the music market. So I decided to share with you, my friend, Mariana`s Paraguay music because I want you also have a good trip like I have it thanks to this girl. Down load it and listen it with your girl friend or with your palls, drinking wine after eating a god. And meet Mariana Paraguay, a real girl that is playing here in desert Mendoza now a day. I let you the second album, first one is great too (at list for me, but you know: I have strange preferences…) Here you have brother: Mariana Paraguay – Los peces. Enjoy and reproduce underground proposals because they are genuine.

Lhasa de Sela – La llorona (1997)

Posted in 1997, España, Folk, Francia, Lhasa de Sela, Musica gitana on 27 marzo 2011 by wirtis
La Llorona: Imperdible.

La Llorona: Imperdible.

Good night, friends. Today is falling the first cold here in my town. And, cause this; I woke up a little rare. With some strange and unfamiliar fell of joy, some indefinable sensation of happiness. So, I decided come here and share with you this moment. Well, for this occasion I chose Lhasa de Sela. Maybe, and if you, eventually, pass for here, shout know that not only sixtie`s garage I like, no. I like some different stuff. So, I said to myself: I have to share something  different, something especial for my friends, cause I want open their doors of perception – yes, like Jim said, you know, before pass away – and, with that purpose take one of the Wirti`s classical.  So here it is La llorona. One of the best and most beautiful albums I ever heard. It`s thru, I`m like Homer celebrating food when I speak about music. But honesty too, so I bring to you one very sophisticated record. Let me explain a little: Lhasa is an american –  mexican singer. She born in 1972, her father was a writer and Spanish teacher. One frijolero in USA.  Her mother was a photographer. If you are thinking, wow so she  grew up in an artist and very stimulating environment; you are right bro, cause it was like that. Imagine: at the age of thirteen she was singing in cafes, in San Francisco.  In ninety ninety-seven she moved to Montreal. Canada and, there she meet  Yves Desrosiers, a sensible and great guitar player. They recorded La llorona that same year. Lhasa was a rare case of excellence and popular phenomenon. Cause she made a beautiful music and classical at the time. Her entire work are only three  albumns: La llorona, The living road and Lhasa. She die in January the first of 2010. At the age of 37.

Lhasa (RIP)

Lhasa (RIP)

Only with three records she have an especially place in the music. The first, La llorona, is a delicious album singed in Spanish. Here she took a lot of folk music from Spanish and Latin-America. And not only that, she also used some verses of Lope de Vega for La Celestina. This is a wonderfull record man, I tell you, even knowing you like raw and dirty garage, I recommended to you this album. Cause it`s sad, dark but sweet a deep to. Here you are going to find an excellent guitarist and one of the best voices that ever have listen. Open your mind, free yourself and listen.

Before i go, i let you what critics said about this record:

En 1997, aparece la Llorona, primer álbum escrito, compuesto e interpretado por una desconocida joven llamada Lhasa. Algunos quizás consideraron este álbum una curiosidad, un exótico accidente. Escapando a cualquier definición el álbum evoca una América Latina, a la vez real e imaginaria, fruto de la memoria de una infancia itinerante, en el vaivén de los caminos de México y Estados Unidos. La música nos aparece como única y familiar, mezcla de rancheras y melopeas zíngaras, country y canciones populares, junto a textos profundamente íntimos, interpretados en español por una voz cálida y potente… …las canciones, teñidas por un romanticismo a la Emily Brontë, están llenas de humor, de inteligencia y de ironía, son directas, desconcertantes y apasionadas.

For understood and free minds only: Lhasa de Sela – La llorona.
