Descarados from LA:
Bio
… … … … … … … Descarados one-sided 12” E.P. with etching out now! … Available through Ebullition and other DIY distributors. … … What people are saying: … … “Descarados play solid, fast punk rock with melodic guitar playing that is heavily under the influence of first-wave DC emo, especially Embrace or Rites of Spring, while the throaty vocals (sung in Spanish) keep everything well within punk territory. It’s refreshing to hear those influences on something that doesn’t sound wimpy or watered down. Descarados reclaim those sounds for punk rock, and it’s about time.” … —…Maximum Rocknroll… … … “A band that includes Carlos and Gordo from Sin Orden and offering something different from that band’s rabid hardcore approach. The music is inspired by the more melodic side of the DC hardcore spectrum, especially ‘Subject To Change’-era Faith, along with later 80s progenitors like One Last Wish, Ignition, et al. There’s a warm passion to the sonic content and…you can hear a similar passion in Carlos’ vocals, moving away from the scream ‘n screech into something nuanced yet still forceful.” … —…Suburban Voice… … … … … … … … … … Other bands we are in or have been in:…SIN ORDEN…TRAGATELO…ESPERANZA…MUGRE…

Influences
People, places, ideas. Influenced by moments of creativity banded together with resistance. Influenced by the rage in Nina Simone’s voice, the truth-telling power of border corridos, the chants of the Shoshone which still ring loud today. Influenced by NuYorican salsa of the 1970s, pow wows held on Alcatraz Island in 1969, the clandestine shows of the Nueva Canción generation. The frenetic feet of James Brown, the revolution summer in DC, the labor hymns of Joe Hill, the poems written in Manzanar. The fierce looks of the Brown Berets, of the Black Panthers, the discipline, the courage, their imaginations.
