On February 10, 2002, Argentines landed in PR for a full-scale invasion. The invaders consist of a group of 5 young saints and very innocents lads, they call themselves Santos Inocentes. These 5 saints bring on a very powerful, melodic, industrial rock sound. They performed at the Tito Puente Amphitheater in San Juan with the home grown soon-to-be-rock stars Vialterna, the legendary Venezuelan ska/funk band Desorden Publico, and the always amusing, fun to watch boys from Monterey, Mexico, Genitallica.
After their performance the Saints decided to spend more time in the Caribbean Island paradise of PR, where they will stay for a few months performing and doing promotional shows supporting their Megaton release on Maverick Musica. Plus they will film next month an EPK/video of the track that carries their name "Santos Inocentes." They want to capture on film what PR means to them.
Now get ready for the second front of invaders, they have a very peculiar sometimes hard to pronounce name, but when it comes to music and show they're as powerful as a nuclear bomb. They came to demolish your preconceived notions of music. Their name is Catupecu Machu. Catupecu will stay in PR also for a few months and they will perform, supporting "Cuentos Decapitados" (Decapitated Stories) their debut record for EMI Latin. Their name has no translation but their music translates to fun, good all rock n' roll. Cuentos Decapitados have sprung a powerful hit that local radio station
Cosmos 94.7 FM with the track "Y lo que Quiero es que pises sin el suelo" (I want you to step without a floor). In such a short time Catu is becoming one of the favorite bands of the new millennium.
So there you have it two bands from Argentina that will be become the giants of the future. We can now go to sleep safely knowing that the new wave of Latin alternative/rock will be as healthy and as successful as in the past.
