Los Pirañas’ Greatest Hits, with an added brass section, in a disused kerosene tank, what else! The Colombian trio return with an echo blast after their last delivery Historian Natural (2019, Glitterbeat) to make their own way through the psychedelic tunnel visions of cumbia, champeta, psych surf rock and everything else in between.
Made up of Bogota natives, Eblis Alvarez (Meridian Brothers, Chupame El Dedo), Pedro Ojeda (Romperayo, Chupame El Dedo) and Mario Galeano (Frente Cumbiero, Ondatropica), the trio have been playing their own brand of tropical music together for over two decades now. ‘Infame Golpazo en Keroxen’ reunites the trio’s subversive way of making music as they re-configure and re-record their sound live in a disused gasoline tank situated in the port of Santa Cruz de Tenerife, Canary Islands. As that wasn’t enough they meet with local brass players Pablo Arocha on Trumpet, Pablo González on Trombone and Eduardo Martín on Tuba to mash up the already mucho tropical humid vibe into a unique gasoline implosion of tropical fervour.
After three unique albums showcasing their trajectory as a trio through the South American music ethos the Colombian powerhouse return to the scene of the crime with a solid set of high energy reversions of their most memorable tunes.
Featuring tracks from their last three albums:
1. Toma Tu Jabón Kapax (Lambada de Oceania, Africa y America, Champeta de la corrupcion y la desgana, Monstruo Prometedor)
2. La Diversion que Hacia Falta en mi País (Dragones Chinos, Sir De Gusano),
3. Historia Natural (Infame Golpazo, Espíritu de los seres humanos, Todos tenemos hogar).
Part of a new collaboration between Discrepant and Keroxen labels, firing up the less obvious island-made music into the wide world.
