"Bits of life cut into pieces with rock, marinated in Rhumba ready to enjoy without complications or complexes..." (dabunker.org 09)
This is a genuine description of the work realized from 2007-2009 by José "El Chatarra", creator and leader of groups like Band del Palo (guitar/voice), Patxi and the Wailers (voice) and a regular collaborator with bands that include A Voces and Game Over Selectors... A life dedicated to performing with more than 300 gigs behind him and with the desire to express his feelings through music, his passion.
Towards the end of 2009 José "El Chatarra" together with Jesús "Chuky" entered Rub Studios to give life to the LP "De chatarra, corazón..." banking on Robert Martínez for production, Calima for sound engineering and on a wide range of experience in the world of music. The disc counts on collaborators like Juanlu "El Canijo", Diego Lezcano (drummer with Calima), Gustavo (electric guitar), Afrika,... and rescues from La Mina neighborhood the punk gypsy, Rafa "El Patrón", who offers a wealth of nuances with a voice that comes close to traditional flamenco.
A new vision of Rhumba, a homogenous blend of rock and funk, musical transgression looking for roots and, at the same time, plotting a course between distortions and flamenco melodies, visual impact, the 21st Century neighborhood, a gypsy with a crest and a singer with a shirt from the "1960s bricklayer" collection... A powerful expression that is presented on this first recording and that is lifted to the stage, where they play their best, and deliver "splinters of funk that cut the veins, blood from the street that flows in the air, bits and pieces of the heart, joy, heat,... fresh air."
