GENERACION SUICIDA: Con La Muerte a Tu Lado: LP

Nov 13, 2013

This is some pretty great punk rock hailing from the belly of the beast, South Central L.A. When you come from a place like that and look at life through a second generation immigrant’s eyes, the world can feel like a really fucked up place. This is because the world, or at least many of the isolated worlds that exist within L.A., are truly fucked. Isolation, boredom, racism, poverty, desperation, and madness—it’s all on this slab of plastic. The noise made to vent these emotions is what keeps the insanity at bay. Musically, it’s very much in the vein of Masshysteri if you ask me, “the Mexican version of The Vicious” if you ask others. You get the idea if you’re a fan of either. Eleven tracks that keep it short and sweet on white vinyl with sick artwork. The dual male/female vocals really give it that extra pop. It’s so simple, melodic, and well-played you really can’t help digging this record. Get ready to move your hips and learn some Spanglish.
