RULETA RUSA: La Ley: 7”

The title track is an attack on asshole cops told in the first-person. The flip, “Psoriasis,” is both about how fun suffering from that particular malady can be and a comment on the state of America’s healthcare system. This one’s a bit of a departure from the usual Modern Action fodder, in both delivery (both songs are in Spanish, which is no surprise considering a member or two were in Peligro Social) and sound (less reliant on late’70s/early ‘80s West Coast punk conventions and a bit more hardcore welded into their DNA), but it’s no less crucial. It’s limited to 450 copies, but act especially quick ‘n’ order direct from the label and you may be lucky enough to get one of the one hundred copies that has a bullet casing wedged into the record’s center hole.
