Argentinean punk recordings from the years 1982-1986. ALERTA ROJA existed and survived under the nose of a violent and oppressive military dictatorship. The band played gigs in Buenos Aires in the early ’80s, giving a voice to a generation of angry Latin American youth. After so many years, these seventeen tracks are finally getting a proper vinyl release under the name “Something Is Changing…And Very Violently.” Alerta Roja’s influences pulled from music that managed to cross the ocean and fall into the hands of its members—one might hear The Clash, Pistols, or Wire seeping from the groves, but don’t be surprised if you get a small dose of The Cure or Joy Division as you listen to this gem. Alongside as other amazing bands from South America (Peru’s Leuzemia, Zcuela Cerrada, G3, or Uruguay’s Los Invasores), Alerta Roja reaffirms that despite the conditions and lack of resources, these nations produced some amazing punk music/attitude. QUE VIVA EL PUNK LATINO AMERICANO!!!!!! QUE VIVA ALERTA ROJA!!!!
