Basura / Press

“To start: This was the most fun I've had at a show in a long time. Like, hip shaking fist-pumping "Oh-my-God! This-is-amazing!" kind of fun. Like, standing-in-front-of-the-speakers ears-be-damned kind of fun. There was lots of smiling. From everyone. That was the atmosphere for the night. Basura (or Los Basura is you prefer): A five-peice local ska outfit. Th#mce_temp_url#at's third-wave ska (hints of metal/punk/ and surf rock. More Voodoo Glow Skulls than Madness). The whole set was conducted in Spanish, and by the sing/shout along at the end, it was obvious I should have paid more attention in Spanish 2. Basura is a band I wish I saw more.”

“Basura, who were one of the first groups of its kind on the scene, have many influences ranging from English 70s punk, and Spanish rock idols, such as El Tri, Maldita Vecindad, among many others. In addition to that, all of the members (Martin Montes on vocals/guitar; Federico Borjas on vocals/guitar; Jose Moran on bass; John Lancaster on trombone; Marcus Murrietta on trumpet; and Gerardo on drums) each come from different musical backgrounds as well. By incorporating a trombone and a trumpet, Basura seamlessly create a truly original sound, accompanying it with songs about politics, religion, racism, and history pertaining to immigrants. "Nothing [we talk about] is invented, it's not fantasy," said songwriter, Montes.”
