Editor’s note: this story is linked to Bonetti’s EP, Dos Mescal para vamanos, out now on The Audacious Art Experiment. Order here. I came in to the west, riding buses from state to town as far east as Tulum, Quintana Roo. The depot was filled with local hermanos, flamboyant sombreros and a blazing sun so wretched my eye was leaking, and a permanent squint ached … Continue reading Short Story: Restock in Oaxaca.
Aquí No Hubo Escena (ANHE) no planeaba llegar a cinco ediciones. Ni siquiera a dos. Si cuando estábamos resanando y decorando la pared del local en Azcapotzalco donde se llevó a cabo la primera edición algún profeta de las calles nos hubiera dicho a Fabro, Vampi, Moy, Chazz y a mí que llegaríamos a trabajar con Bobby Bray (The Locust) o montar el show de … Continue reading Aquí no hubo escena, pero sí amigos
“But I don’t even like metal” I said before seeing it was a free ticket. Then I donned a Wet Nuns tee and hoped for the best. In this case, the best case scenario was the festival actually taking place and not getting surreptitiously cancelled by some government prick.

A funny thing happened on the way to pop stardom. At least it did for Mexico’s Turbina, a band whose first album, Panamerica,was a sweet collection of radio friendly songs. Continue reading “Band of the week: Turbina”
Exactly a month ago, I had the pleasure of reviewing Yokozuna’s rather excellent Quiero Venganza. I quite enjoyed the album and got in contact with Arturo & Antonio Tranquilino, the brothers who make up this band. Quick email exchange and away the questions went, which got answered in less than 24 hours.

Back in September, we reviewed the album Lonesome water, lonely sea by Joe Volume, who we’ve been following for a while (both on twitter and music terms). The last few months seemed to have been a rollercoaster in the life of this musician and we wanted to drop him a couple of questions by email. Without any further ado, this is how it went down:
