ARGIES: Himnos de Combate: CD

A collection of singles tracks released domestically to support this long-running Argentine band’s upcoming US tour. Musically, this leans toward the Clash side of the punk equation, right down to the fascination with reggae, yet they manage to retain enough individuality to keep from ending up in the dung heap of bands ripping off days past (cough…Rancid…cough). A damn fine collection and proof that the United States and England aren’t the only hotbeds of punk rock greats.
