MirceONE (MPTYZINE) Hola amigos, soy MirceONE de MPTYZINE, ¿cómo están?

LMS: Muy bien muchas gracias, contentos de compartir contigo un poco de lo que somos.

En primer lugar felicidades por sus 13 años, ¿cómo lo celebraste?

Gracias por la felicitación hermano, la pasamos increíble en un concierto que realizamos en una de las plataformas de difusión cultural más grande de nuestra ciudad “el tianguis cultural Guadalajara”; de llevó a cabo el 23 de noviembre, nos acompañaron bandas hermanas como Reset, reviviendo raíces y unos camaradas de Perú llamados “X dinero”, en nuestras redes sociales puedes encontrar un poco del registro de ese concierto.

Para aquellos que no conocen a la banda, ¿puedes darnos una breve introducción?

Claro, LMS (La Mugrosa Ska) somos una banda de rock fusión con toques característicos entre el Ska, punk rock, hardcore punk melódico, emo, ritmos latinos etc. Creemos que la música es un universo inmenso como para cerrarse a experimentar, nuestras letras van desde temas de interés social, conciencia ambiental, superación personal, protesta social, etc. La banda surgió en noviembre de 2006.

Vi que tienes algunos conciertos próximos para finales de 2019, ¿cuáles son los planes para 2020?

Sí, el cierre de 2019 fue muy enriquecedor con nuestro concierto del 13 aniversario y nuestra participación en la clausura del festival de las artes “Sucede”; para 2020 empezaremos el año presentando un nuevo sencillo producido por Odín Parada, saldremos de nuevo a países como Colombia, Argentina, Perú y si todo sigue en pie nos vamos para Europa a hacer una gira como de 20 días, terminaremos de producir nuestro 4 disco titulado “identidad”.

¿Cuál es el mensaje que la banda intenta transmitir?

Principalmente la toma de conciencia de nuestras acciones, el cómo repercuten tanto personal, social, ambiental y el hacer algo con ellos, protestar ante las injusticias, luchar por los ideales, cuidar el medio ambiente, etc.

Cuéntanos algunas cosas sobre sus influencias, ¿cuáles son las bandas que los influenciaron a lo largo del tiempo?

Es una pregunta muy interesante, como te comenté creemos que la música es magnífica por ellos nos han influenciado bandas de muchísimos géneros desde bandas de rock clásico y progresivo como Yes, Pink Floyd, Radiohead, Oasis, Frank Zappa, bandas de hardcore punk como terror, Comeback Kid, stick to your guns, your demise, Alex is on fire, close your eyes, bandas de punk como Ramones, Joy Division, Rancid, NOXF, MXPX etc. Bandas de Ska que van desde Ska jazz, rockseady como the Skatalites, New York Ska jazz, Rotterdam Ska jazz, the shake it ups hasta bandas de ska punk hardcore como RX Bandits, Streetlight manifesto, link 80, sublime, flaming tsumanis entre otras.

¿Dónde puede el público escuchar LMS a través de Internet, en las redes sociales?

En la página oficial http://www.lamugrosaska.com en Facebook como La Mugrosa Ska Oficial, Instagram, Twitter, Spotify, ITunes Music y todas las plataformas digitales.

¿Qué sabes sobre la escena underground de Europa del Este?

Muy poco, sé que es un movimiento fuerte que han logrado dar de que hablar en varias partes del mundo, las bandas que lo conforman son muy buenas y entre todos se da un apoyo muy interesante.

Sin Google, dime qué sabes sobre Rumania.

Prácticamente nada, es un país de Europa, específicamente de la zona sureste, es conocida por sus bosque de Transilvania, lugar asociado con la leyenda de Drácula.

Si tuvieras que elegir una banda (vieja escuela, nueva escuela) para hacer un EP dividido, ¿qué banda sería?

Que pregunta tan interesante; si se trata de elegir a una no sabría si entre una banda hermana o alguna de nuestras influencias, pero poniendo los pies sobre la  tierra sería interesante hacer un split con La Plebe de San Pancho California.

Sé que en Guadalajara hay una buena escena underground, cuéntanos algunas palabras sobre las bandas de allí.

La escena underground de Guadalajara está muy dividida, es fuerte por el apoyo del público a las bandas sin embargo entre bandas existe una especie de división por género musical que se da de una forma natural, la escena del Ska es fuerte, sin embargo, la mayoría del público son menores de edad que están cursando el bachillerato y los primeros semestres de licenciatura, por tal motivo no cuentan no un poder adquisitivo suficiente para pagar boletos de conciertos de precios generosos ni mercancía de las bandas, cosa que limita un poco el desarrollo de las bandas en cuanto a generar recursos para su proyección, pero hablando de la pasión y la entrega de los públicos a las bandas es magnífica, sin ellos no seríamos nada.

Por favor dinos algunas palabras para nuestros amigos en línea

Primero saludarlos y agradecido por tomarse el tiempo de leer, les invito a que busquen un poco de nosotros en las redes sociales y hagan suyas las canciones que con tanto amor ofrecemos sin ninguna pretensión más que con honestidad y sinceridad proyectar un poco de lo que sentimos, pensamos y somos y que les compartimos con amor por medio de la linda música.

Gracias por tu tiempo, si deseas agregar algo, adelante.

Gracias por la entrevistas hermano, siempre es un placer compartir unas cuantas palabras de lo que somos, decirle a todo mundo que no dejen de luchar por sus ideales, por sus sueños, por un mundo mejor, por la injusticia de los distintos gobiernos y países, decirles que somos una patria, somos una manada de pájaros volando al horizonte y todas las especies somos bienvenidas.

MirceONE vs LMS – December 2019

Lexington Field-Christmas At The Pub (single 2019)

lfxmas
Lexington Field – Christmas At The Pub cover

Lexington Field are back from the pub, with a new single for this Holiday. Christmas At The Pub is coming fresh from the press for a IrishPunk fiesta. We did promote them few years back and we like them, they formed back in 2009 in San Diego and play a mix of fiddle punk rock that will remind you of Flogging Molly or The Ramshackle Army. So after all the Christmas shopping and media brainwash of course the perfect time to be for Chrsitmas is at the pub with your loved ones, raise a glass and cheers to them!.
You can listen to the new single on Bandcamp and download. Energic and honest to the bone, fiddle and friends. Merry Xmas, raise your drink!!!

Lyrics:

Christmas Vacation on every station
Online shopping across the nation
Another season of pointless presents
I guess it’s time for Christmas at the pub

You’ll shoot your eye out
You better not pout
A double eggnog and light up your house
Another season of waiting in line
I guess it’s time for Christmas at the pub

I will be thankful for this drink
To numb my loneliness away
Maybe next year will be my year
To fall in love on Christmas Day

„Christmas Eve babe in the drunk tank”
A sad reminder of when my heart sank
Another season stuck without you
I guess it’s time for Christmas at the pub

I will be thankful for this drink
To numb my loneliness away
Maybe next year will be my year
To fall in love on Christmas Day

And then I saw her across the bar
Singing along with the band
A beauty who rivals the brightest North Star
I think I might have a chance
To make this year finally my last year
Of whiskey and flat beer and fake holiday cheer
And be in love on Christmas Day

Kaos Urbano – Suburbiales – promo

KAOS URBANO – band photo

Kaos Urbano are back with their new material called Suburbiales, out at Potencial Hardcore and Canibal Producciones. Is the new LP since the one from 2016, La Hora Del Baile and it follows the same path of streetpunk/oi with hardcore elements. They formed at the end of 1995 in Madrid and soon become one of the best acts in streetpunk out there. Suburbiales is a manifest of the band against the artificial glamour of society, and a message for the workig class all in the raw, angry sound and attitude direct from the suburbs. This is something real, that comes from the heart with a lot of pride and a smile on the face. This is the soundtrack of their life for more than 20 years and many to come. Streetpunk/oi at the finest, made in Madrid. A strong message anti-racist and anti-fascist, for the nice memories, for your friends and any Friday night.

Off Beat promo

MptyZine presents for Romania:

offbeat2

offbeat1

Off Beat are coming from Italy, and formed somewhere in 1994. Their sound is raw with various influences from 60’s, surf rock, and of course the energetic rock’n’roll and rockabilly era. To be honest i am not listen to a lot of bands like Off Beat, and they have surprised me as i leave the album in the background and started to move:). This is something to look is you like the old school elements from British punk invasion and any kind of „proto-punk” and psychedelic elements. My personal favorite: Sunshine and That’s I Know. Good mood, good vibes, good music to dance. Cheers.

Thanks to Daniele Boretto.

Stoj Snak – 1000 Daisies EP

MPTY ZINE promo for Romania.

Stoj Snak is back with a new piece of EP with 3 tracks, 1000 Daisies. The EP was released on 19 September 2018 and is a fund raiser to save the venue 1000Fryd in Aalborg in Denmark. About his music we did write a few years ago when materials like: ScreamerSongwriter (LP) and Happitalism (EP) were released. This EP keeps the same sincerity and simplicity like the previous materials, the same folk-punk, acoustic package, the same open heart for who ever is there to listen. Has the same energy and screams, the same punk DIY attitude and goes to tell the things in your face. It’s political, it’s about world, it’s true and goes to your heart. A really good job from Niels and we are expecting the LP. My favorite on this EP: Bitter Place. More infos here: https://stojsnak.bandcamp.com/

Tracklist:
1. 1000 Daisies
2. Election Night
3. Bitter Place
