Banda Mochis de Porfirio Amarillas

Artist: Banda Mochis de Porfirio Amarillas
LP: Banda Mochis de Porfirio Amarillas
Song: "El Payasito"
[ listen ]
Song: "Arriba Mochis"
[ listen ]

When I was in high school, my mom used to complain that my music sounded like garbage cans being banged together. I rolled my eyes and informed her that she was wrong, but now it seems I'm turning out just like my mother! It sounds like Banda Mochis de Porfirio Amarillas is banging garbage cans together! I mean that in the best possible way, of course. They're practically punk rock! There's not much info about Porfirio Amarillas or his Banda Mochis on the web, but I'm guessing they're probably from the northwestern Mexican coastal city of Los Mochis, and I bet Porfirio Amarillas is the fellow who got this exuberantly noisy bunch together and gave them their garbage cans. "Arriba Mochis" is the only song on the LP with vocals, and they're sung with gusto by a gentleman named Concepción Cristobal. If anyone has more info about Porfirio Amarillas, Señor Cristobal, or Banda Mochis, let me know!
