Eskorbuto – “Maldito Pais” 12″

This is pretty bad ass hardcore rock n’ roll from the Basque country. Their name comes from “escorbuto” which means scurvy en??espanol. Formed in 1980. Real and true punks. After being arrested in Spain and accused of being Basque militants, they received no support and subsequently gave their own country the finger. Much of their large catalog of hits was lost to time until now. Sort of a sad story about an under appreciated band that kicks ass. Like too many American 70′s 80′s??punkers, two of the 3 members were lost to heroin in the 90′s. They were one of the first Latin punk bands to sing in Spanish and have influenced countless Latino??punkers. A label owner who put out “radical Basque rock” eventually tried to recruit them. Their response, “Rock has no country, not even Basque.”
