PERRA VIDA

  1. Date & location formed:

    José: We formed in January of this year in Lima, Perú.

  2. How did your band come to be?

    José: Alejandro (guitar) and I (drums) started jamming together for a while; neither of us played our instruments at 100% but we kept going. We wrote a few songs, called up Diana (vocals) and Tina (bass) who play in other Lima punk bands… we’re one of the few punk bands in Lima that isn’t just all boys.

  3. What are your lyrics about?

    José: Diana sings about things that piss her off… and about being a woman in Perú. We live in a fucked up country for women and the government doesn’t give a fuck. It’s fucked up in every single possible way, so there are endless things to shout about.

  4. How would you describe your sound?

    José: Modern day Peruvian rock subterraneo with some gringo hardcore here and there.

  5. List something or someone you think folks need to listen to right now.

    José: Us! And listen to our other bands: Venganza!, Alias la Gringa, and Desakuerdo.

    Fuck the old guard, they are not around anymore- we have new exciting bands doing it right, right now.

  6. What’s in the future for this band?

    José: We just released an EP and hope to record a video, and then do a full length and keep playing shows.

    Raging, spitting, dirty, but done seriously.
