Los Pinochet Boys - Pinochet Boys
HR-16 / 7'' VINYL/ 2012
Hueso Records presents its latest vinyl release, an icon of the 1980s Santiago punk scene, never-before published by any music label: Los Pinochet Boys. The record contains the only two studio-recorded songs from 1984: “Botellas contra el pavimento” and “Música del General”, which remained shelved for 28 years on the original tapes of the band members. Now Hueso Records is releasing them to the public for the first time on a 7-inch vinyl, especially mastered and printed in the Czech Republic and in the United States.
About Pinochet Boys
Jorge Gonzalez of the legendary Los Prisoneros, an important witness of the events, writes: “So the sound of the “Pinochet” was the cross between two non-musicians and two virtuosos with a deep knowledge of tradition. They sounded like nothing else around, they came from nowhere and were not aiming for any kind of success…. And yet the two songs that they recorded in the studio are brilliant today, especially when contrasted to the pale efforts of their contemporaries…. Botellas contra el pavimento, sung by Dani, should have been played over and over on the radio, should have been a classic, should have existed to be shared…. The B side, Música del General, although more traditional, shines as one the greatest examples of Santiago Hardcore, with all their voices galloping through the streets.
