Spanglish for the Masses...
Orale. Spanglish 101 comes to you from the urban schools fully cocked & loaded…no, not with bullets ese, but with an ultra-ultra underground arsenal of hybrid rhythms, and sonic sensibilities, laced in thematic angst, accompanied by the ever Latin “presence of death” in all its forms. This disc, compiled and executive produced by Faith No More wunderkind Billy Gould and the always masked and unknown Juan Brujo of Brujeria infamy, shows that even in the nascent and still considered underground Rock en Espanol scene (heretofore called simply RnE), there is an even deeper layer to mine. The disc begins by having you jump off a passing jet with Lil Rudy G & the Chizmosos’ demented old man singing a drunken fuzzed out Ranchero warning us about the coming “Attack of the Chupacabras” (the goat-killing-blood-sucking alien form outer space that terrorized all of Latin America). We then fall and crossfade into the Latin/Jazz/Rap/Thrash of Uruguay’s Peyote Asesino in “U.R. Gay”, (a take on Bart Simpson’s televised insult to that Country). At this point you’ll definitely find that you’re not in Kansas anymore and hate Ricky Martin. Puerto Rican group Puya (Spanish for a jab, stab or a puncture) arrive to prove this point. With Montate (get up ). This group terrorizes Salsa purists (who should be thanking them for bringing that genre back to the young in the streets instead of pop & commercial markets) using thrash and screaming vocals in street dialect then seamlessly transitioning to perfect Salsa and back complete with horns, percussion and outstanding vocals that would do Ruben Blades proud-- an amazing balance of noise and flavor. But Spanglish 101’s synthesized Latin take on traditional American Rock & Roll proves even further that RnE is a vast underworld from the ultra dry recording of Announcing Prediction’s “I Wanna Die” whose female vocalist slowly spins out of control into a frenzied shower of echo and reverb, to the minor chord laden call to resistance of Riot Grrrl group Chicle Atomico’s Pre-Columbian Punkadelic “Generation Mex”. The Classrooms highlights here are Calavera’s Mexabilly “Ojos de una mujer sin alma” (Eyes of a woman with out a soul), and Bay Area whiteboy Spanglish rockers Banana Hammock’s hilarious “Cun~ado”(Brother in-law) using slang learned from a dishwashing stint at a restaurant (Get a Latino to translate, you won’t be sorry). The big boys are here also, Mexican rappero superstars Control Machete are one, along with Brujeria with terror and justice for all in Marcha de Odio (the march of the hated ones) in their humorous take of the Eurodisco hit “Don Quixote”. There’s more to discover here with groups hailing from Spain to Argentina but it all ends up in the ch-ch-chunky garage rap of East L.A’s Aztlan Underground in “Lyrical Drive-By”, done in a 21st century Blade Runneresque “spanglish” of course.
