Yeah, you probably know by now that MRR has a boner for the LA Raw Ponx scene, and you’ve heard us tell you a million times about raging bands like TUBERCULOSIS, LA VOZ, and RAYOS X — who all, by the way, have new records out on Lengua Armada that totally rule. You may have even seen the name POLISKITZO in amongst the aforementioned bands, but I’m here to tell you that this is the band to watch out for.
At any given Raw Ponx show here in LA, there’s bound to be at least six bands on the bill, and up to ten will actually play, and only if you know the bands personally do know who the hell you’re watching. So for like three or four shows there was this one band that always blew me away, but I could never figure out what they were called. That band, of course, is POLISKITZO. They’ve got a demo out on the Raw Ponx official Silenzio Statico label that’s great, but doesn’t quite capture the band’s live sound. They’ve talked about actually putting out a live recording, which would be sweet. For a glimpse of what I’m talking about, here’s a live video from a typical LA show. (Sorry, this video went “private” for reasons unknown… bummer.)
