Los Monjo - la Vida Que Todos Envidian
Very excited to have scored a copy of this awesome LP! I first heard Los Monjo on the Brutales Matanzas comp along with other contemporary Mexican hardcore hard hitters Crimen, Ratas De Vaticano, Margaritos etc. etc. Their two tracks on the comp really stood out to me. These brothers deliver that rockin' edge with almost a hint of French Oi. This LP doesn't disappoint and is in a similar vein. Somewhat like a stripped down Eskorbuto, tracks like "Rock Basura" will have you redefining the term punk rock. Pick up this dystopian hardcore punk while it's still available in the US.
