EUTANASIA – “Sentimiento de Agitación” LP
Here is the first vinyl rendition of a classic Peruvian punk tape recorded in 1990. Somewhere at the intersection of the RAMONES and RIP, EUTANASIA distills punk into its raw rock material essentials: catchy, pogo-friendly, yet serious and angry punk. Their commitment to carrying the torch of local underground rock is demonstrated by the covers of both LOS SAICOS “Demolición” and LEUSEMIA. Informative insert made for English speakers outlines the challenges of playing underground music during turbulent times. While your country is busy waging a bloody war between Maoists and a brutal state, one option is to go on creating something amidst the wreckage. This record is that plebian answer to the senseless violence. Forming in 1986, those members who stuck it out in Lima recorded this record in 1990, and then they too fled the country. Crucial recording for Peruvian punk history and a must have for anyone even remotely interested in Latin American punk. (Lena T)
