San Juan, Puerto Rico's Davila 666 brought their fierce Spanish-language garage-pop -- with gang vocals, tambourines, pop hooks, guitar licks, and all the fixins -- to the WFMU live room for a set that aired on Talk's Cheap this past Tuesday.
Chatting with lead singer Carlito, he mentioned that -- prior to Davila 666 -- he and bassist AJ made "nasty gangsta rap" (in what I'm pretty sure is this group Ciencia Fixión). He also recommended some local PR punk contemporaries like Los Vigilantes and LopoDrido.
This is Davila 666's second cross-country tour. The first led to their signing to In The Red for their self-titled debut, released last year and chock-full-o-hits. They've also got new 7''s on HoZac and Douchemaster. They played the A-side of the Douchemaster 7'', "Pingarocha y la Diva Rockera", some new songs, and some jams from the In The Red release (like "Nueva Localizión", below).
