DRUNKEN CHOLOS, THE: Livin La Vida Loco: CD

The Drunken Cholos are the Queers back to their original line up. It sounds a lot like “A Day Late and a Dollar Short” (which I think is the Queers’ first album). It’s real raw like “A Day Late..”, and very snotty—two things that usually make for a good album, but not in this case. The lyrics are inane and the songs are simple and uninspired. I guess this is what happens when you have a record label that will put out any kind of crap you record. It’s too bad, because, when I think back to all the cool Queers albums out there, it pains me to rag this one. But you can’t just put out any shit and expect your fans to worship you. Sooner or later, you have to do something new and interesting. The Drunken Cholos are neither.
