PINOCHET BOYS – LOS PINOCHET BOYS/ HR-16 / 7” VINYL / 2012
Out of stock
Hueso Records proudly presents never-before published icons of the Santiago punk scene from the early 80’s: Los Pinochet Boys. The record contains the only two studio-quality tracks they ever produced, both from 1984, taken directly from the original tapes, which remained shelved with the band members for 28 years until now, being released to the public for the first time in a 7” mastered by Rodrigo Gomberoff, pressed for Hueso Records in the Czech Republic and with the sleeve printed in the U.S. Jorge González –leader of the legendary Chilean band Los Prisioneros, protagonist and close witness of the 80’s scene events (HR-27)– has written: “The sound of Los Pinochet Boys was a cross between the output of two non-musicians and two virtuosos with a deep knowledge of tradition, so they sounded like nothing else that was around. They came out of nowhere and weren’t aiming for any kind of success, yet the only two songs they made in studio are still brilliant today –especially if contrasted against the pale efforts of their contemporaries. Side A, Botellas Contra el Pavimento, sung by Dani, should have been played over and over on the radio, become a classic and been available to be shared; the B side, Música del General –although more traditional– shines as well as one the greatest examples of Santiago’s hardcore, with all their voices galloping together through the streets”. Published by HR in an edition of 500 copies.
