2 Minutos – Amigos de lo ajeno – album cover

2 Minutos are coming from Buenos Aires, Argentina and they have formed somewhere in 1987. One of the best punk rock acts and a band that you need to listen. With more than 10 LP’s and a lot of EP’s and compilations the band in back in 2019 with Amigos de Lo Ajeno, that is a 7 tracks EP with covers from: Nirvana, Los Fabulosos Cadillacs, El Chapo de Sinaloa, Andrés Calamaro, José Luis Perales, Sumo and Sui Generis. With more than 25 years on the road the band was the first punk band in Argentina to have a gig in the legendary CBGB in New York in 1995. The lyrics of 2 Minutos are talking about police violence, politics, football, alchool and of course various problems of the working class. Another fact about 2 Minutos is that they have been the opening act for The Ramones in 1996, during their Farewell Tour in Argentina.

This is a pure 90’s punk made in Argentina, honest and with attitude.

Black Skull Radio-interview in Spanish.

bsr4

This is our first interview in Spanish with Erick (drummer) from Black Skull Radio (punk rock from Mexico City). You can read the interview also in our new number 43 coming up soon. Stay rude,stay rebel!

 

MirceONE (MPTYZINE): Hola Erik, que tal carnal?
Erick (Black Skull Radio): todo bien hermano, ensayando mucho y dando el rol bro

Que novedades hay?
Pues estamos en una fase de desarrollo de las últimas ideas para detallar nuestras canciones nuevas y darle un refresh al acto en vivo. Ahora contamos al fin con dos guitarristas y pues emocionados con el sonido que va madurando dentro de la banda.

Vi que tuvieron algunos conciertos y cosas nuevas.Saldra algun album pronto?
Si, efectivamente tuvimos una gira por el bajío y norte del país, se llamó Sensacional De Punkeros, compartimos kilómetros de carretera con dos muy buenas bandas Mexicanas que se llaman Rotten(CDMX)y Hollywood Babilonia(GDL, Méx). Fue una gran experiencia que tuvo todo tipo de matices que nos acercaron mucho como amigos y como parte la escena punk rock mexicana, es siempre muy emocionante conocer personas nuevas y también conocer su visión de la música y de la realidad que se vive en este país. . Estuvimos en la ciudad de Aguascalientes, Monterrey y Guadalajara. Ciudades históricas y ricas en su contenido cultural y por supuesto contracultural. Y si, todo esto se verá reflejado en el nuevo trabajo de Black Skull Radio. Es necesario compartir el sonido y energía que percibimos en este tiempo desde que salió Mala Suerte Y Días Grises. Es retroalimentar el cariño que nos tiene la gente y el que nosotros le tenemos a este sentimiento punkrocker que llevamos en el pecho.

Para los que todavia no los conocen, podrian compartir algo de su historia con nosotros?
Claro que si, somos seis sujetos de la Ciudad de México que afortunadamente coincidimos en el camino dentro de la escena hardcore punk y punk oí! Nos conocimos y nació una amistad antes que la idea de ser una banda. Hace casi cinco años iniciamos Con Black Skull Radio, una banda que lleva acabo un sonido punk rock “californiano”, siempre de la mano de la música rebelde, música para darle voz a la gente del barrio, del pueblo, de los sentimientos urbanos y de historias que merecen ser escuchadas. BSR es una banda que pone el corazón en la tarima.

Cuales son sus influencias? Nombren 10 bandas.
Esta siempre es una de nuestras preguntas favoritas, a nombre de toda la banda podríamos nombrar a Rancid, GBH, Maldita Vecindad, The Suicide Machines, Ilegales, Cock Sparrer, Social Distortion, The Clash, Misfits y Kortatu.

Si necesitaran llevar con ustedes tres cosas a una isla que seria?
Jejejeje buena esa, obviamente un stereo, el disco The History of The Clash y un buen encendedor.

Nombren con que banda les gustaria tocar (nueva o vieja)
Tocar con una banda nueva? Pues no tenemos problema con los géneros, si nos gustaría un show con Cypress Hill, con Rancid, Con The Adicts, con Toxic Holocaust, con Wolfbrigade, por supuesto con Fermín Muguruza. Uno siempre quiere dar un show con bandas que de alguna forma influencian al sonido propio.

Saben algo de la corriente punk de Europa del este?
El intercambio de material y el DIY ha funcionado después de todo en cuanto al tráfico de ideas y música. Conocemos algunas bandas sobre todo por recopilaciones y acoplados que hemos recibido por parte de punx que viajan de Mexico hacia Europa, y de mismos europeos que también dejan discos con mucho gusto. Gogol Bordello goza de cierta popularidad pero también nos gustan los sonidos más underground, por ejemplo Leukimia de Hungría, Trottel igualmente de Hungría suena por aca, Hopes es una banda República Checa con sonido hardcore que en lo personal nos gusta mucho.

bsr3

Que mas haces aparte de la banda?
Pues lo común, trabajar, ver a nuestras familias, ir a shows, ejercitarse un poco y por supuesto jugar con nuestros perros. Todos en Black Skull Radio tenemos proyectos alternos a la banda, tenemos otras bandas. Eskirt (bajo)tiene un proyecto de oí! Llamado Los Villanos, Txop (guitarra) toca en Working Class, una banda punk oí!, Tío (vocal) está en Los Frankys, banda de garage Terror. Yo me preparo para salir de gira por Europa con Excluded banda de street punk. Son cosas que llenan nuestros días y que alimentan al BSR.

Podrias compartir un mensaje con nuestros pocos lectores en linea?
Un mensaje que le daría a la gente sería: nunca dejen de escuchar música, nunca, no tengan prejuicio por los géneros que la música rebelde siempre viene en infinitos sabores, hay música regional de todas partes que tiene letras caravanas de mensaje y sentimiento puro. Manténgase jóvenes en el ánimo y ganas de divertirse, que se joda la apatía y que se joda el Real Madrid.

Donde te pueden encontrar en linea y escuchar la musica?
Nos encuentran en plataformas digitales como Spotify, YouTube y en nuestra Fanpage como Black Skull Radio, estamos en Instagram igualmente y podemos enviarles un link de descarga de nuestro primer trabajo Mala Suerte Y Días Grises con una calidad de sonido bastante buena.

Gracias hermano por tu tiempo, algun ultimo mensaje que quieras compartir?
Muchas gracias por el tiempo suyo y por darle voz a la escena punk rock de la mera ciudad de los muertos, del DF para todos nuestros amigos de Europa.

Scandal – on a roll

For the ones that want to know a bit of Romanian punk history, you must listen and check to Scandal. They have been around since ’97 under the name: Speedy Freak (long time ago in a galaxy far, far away), and change the name later on in Scandal. They have released for our „scene” two materials (Live in Beci in 2001 and Resturi Din Punkomat in 2003), with drink along anthems like „Patrula” and „Bauta”. They moved in UK and with help from Spirit Of The Street Records they have a new LP: „On A Roll”, in vinyl (3 colors) digital and of course on CD. 10 tracks in the old punk rock, young and classic with a rebelious sounds and some sing along parts. Themes about working class, against media brainwash and nostalgia about old hometown plus the sincere sound of a real punk rock, is something to look for on this album. Good for sharing a beer with your mates in a pub cause…it’s just punk rock!!!. Always when i am listening to Scandal i am thinking back to my friends and back to those long summer nights, we all grew up and we will always remember the good times.

Ok, enough this is a split EP out on January 2015 on Altercation Records and promo in Europe by Flix Agency with The Svetlanas (from Mother Russia originaly but now they are livin in Italy).
