Spanish language and punk rock often mix well together and there’s no exception with DISCIPULOS DE DIONISOS. The band plays fast punk rock with teenage vocals. They’re not really an angry punk band though since they seem to be singing only about fun and sex but most songs are up-tempo and less than two minutes. You’ll hear some 90s indie/emo punk influences in “Noches De Amor Y De M.D.M.A.” or in “Un Hombre Lobo Americano En Londres”, some 80s American hardcore (“La Mujer Del Doctor Soler”, “Patinete Loco”) and some street punk touches in “Odia A Los Chavales.” Songs like “Mi Novia Es Fascista” or “Gibson SG” are quite catchy and this album is definitely worth checking out if you need your fun punk rock dose this summer. /Laurent C.
So a few days ago I went to the “John Paul Keith” show here in Valencia. I usually go early to every show, so that I can get to see the opening band, I was surprised when I arrived there and Mr Keith started playing, I thought the opening band had cancelled or something. So after John finished his explosive show I went out for a beer and and some fresh air when suddenly I heard these catchy chords and melodies, I went in and there was this band from Asturias playing a mind blowing set. To make a long story short. I found traces of Cheap Trick, The Beat, The Raspberries, The Replacements, and Husker Du all mixed together. The band’s name was “Pelazo”, they are formed by : Adrián Cadaya : Lead guitar and vocals Vini Serrano: Bass and vocals Pibli Gonzalez Drums and vocals Pablo Alvarez Torre : Rhythm guitar and vocals First of all, they all sing!! Now that’s a weird thing in the year 2022, and they also do it well, which is even weirder. They played that gig like if it was their last, and so I decided to write a few lines about their latest release, a 2 song ep which consists of “Carry On”, a complete Power Pop gem. This is an original cut that sounds like The Who meets The Plimsouls, in your face Rock and Roll with a 70’s twist so this is probably why it is not a strange thing at all that the other song is no other than a cover of Todd Rundgren’s “Couldn’t I just Tell You” I’m in love with this band, I strongly suggest you guys listen to them You can do it here :
