MRR Radio presents: Losing the Human Form — A South American punk special

Here is a special MRR Radio episode which features over an hour of classic punk rock, hardcore and new wave South American bands from the ’80s. Songs from classic albums and compilation to demo versions and live performances. Some photographs, videos, fanzines and posters produced for these groups were shown at an exhibition called Perder la forma humana: Una imagen sísmica de los años ochenta en América Latina (Losing the Human Form: A Seismic Image of the 1980s in Latin America — scroll down to see a video about the exhibit), at the Reina Sofia Museum in Madrid, Spain. Losing the Human Form was curated by a group of Latin American researches called Red Conceptualismos del Sur. Here is their special contribution for MRR Radio!

O Começo do Fim do Mundo (The beginning of the end of world). São Paulo, November of 1982. (Photo by Vitão. Ariel Invasor Archive.)

Huge thanks to Andre and Red Conceptualismos del Sur for putting this special podcast together for us! We owe them a big apology for taking so long to finally get this posted. Please note there are no DJ breaks in this episode — just 100% punk rock! And we’re giving it to you at a higher bit-rate than usual to keep that killer 30-year-old cassette tape sound quality intact.

Monday Photo Blog: Sean DeCory


April 22nd, 2013 by

Sean DeCory from Toronto sent some images of shows at the now defunct Siesta Nouveaux for this Monday Photo Blog. Siesta Nouveaux was a show space in Toronto for the past ten years that was shut down and demolished last year. Perhaps the best way to illustrate the importance of this place is to share an excerpt from the e-mail Sean included with the images:

“So many times I heard out of town bands/people proclaiming how lucky we were to have a place like Siesta. A venue like Siesta is rare and its absence has left a huge gap for the Toronto scene, especially the kids just starting to pick up their instruments and get their rock on. It was place full of interaction fun and creativity that cannot be matched by a bar or even a community center.

As a photographer shooting bands growing up I have grown a bit bored of music photos, but Siesta wasn’t just about having shows it was about everything punk rock. The crowds were crazy, (but respectful) and he only rule seemed to be don’t fuck with anyone, as well as don’t venture into peoples rooms. Once everyone found out Siesta was going to be torn down, spray painting and vandalism were pretty much accepted and sometimes encouraged. The interaction, the energy and the pure community feel of Siesta made me love shooting music again, and it will certainly be missed.”
