MARCEL DUCHAMP: La Vida de Las Personas: LP

A new band to me. Subsequent investigative work informed me that it hails from Chile, with its first release being back in 2000. Named after the renowned artist Marcel Duchamp, my initial impression was of a straightforward punk rock band, but as the album progressed, it exposed a more angular and noise rock tone, occasionally entering the realm of Coffin Break. La Vida de Las Personas has grown with every play, and I still feel that I haven’t taken it all in yet, as there always seems to be some nuance which I had previously overlooked. How long that will last I don’t know, but I’m certainly going to keep going even when I feel I have reached that point of being totally up to speed with this piece of work. An added bonus is that there is a healthy back catalogue for me to plunder, which I intend to do with relish. –Rich Cocksedge (Inhumano, inhumano.org)
