The Lost Gem: The Sundays – Reading, Writing & Arithmetic

  Reading, Writing & Arithmetic came out in January of 1990. I wasn’t into any popular music back in those days, I mostly listened to classical music or Crí Crí (obviously) while scrambling to finish homework. I wouldn’t find about The Sundays until 1994, during what I call The Perfect Summer. A trip to Great Britain and Ireland, fantastic films (The Crow, True Lies, The … Continue reading The Lost Gem: The Sundays – Reading, Writing & Arithmetic

Review: Vast Robot Armies – Little Creatures

A few years ago, Goodnight Myopia landed on my lap. It was a spacey and overtly catchy one man army effort. It also felt like staggering back home after a particularly bad day: emotions are raw, the sun has gone back to its den far too fast and you are seeing red, almost blinded by the dark ocher lampposts guiding you home. Whatever shortcomings Goodnight … Continue reading Review: Vast Robot Armies – Little Creatures

I’ve been a fan of American Analog Set since that fateful day I came across The Golden Band. Living in Mexico meant that I never really had much chance to see them, until their show at Polyforum Siqueiros back in 2007.

This interview was originally posted in Spanish at México’s La Pop Life, a cool website I write in Spanish for and the editor kindly agreed to let me post it here, unedited, in its original form.  Continue reading “Interview – American Analog Set”

Radio Chaneque : Bandas infravaloradas de los 90s

Nuevo especial de Radio Chaneque, esta vez con Claudia Ramírez y su servilleta, Sam Valdés. En esta primera parte hablamos un montón de los 90s, nos sentimos como Homero en ese capítulo que dice que va a rockear forever (forever….forever…) y nos planteamos si el rock alcanzó su plenitud en el 94. Por desgracia, todavía no es un hecho comprobado científicamente. Introducción: Stone Temple Pilots … Continue reading Radio Chaneque : Bandas infravaloradas de los 90s

Why do you need new bands? Everyone knows rock attained perfection in 1974. It’s a scientific fact.
