MRR Radio presents: Losing the Human Form — A South American punk special

Here is a special MRR Radio episode which features over an hour of classic punk rock, hardcore and new wave South American bands from the ’80s. Songs from classic albums and compilation to demo versions and live performances. Some photographs, videos, fanzines and posters produced for these groups were shown at an exhibition called Perder la forma humana: Una imagen sísmica de los años ochenta en América Latina (Losing the Human Form: A Seismic Image of the 1980s in Latin America — scroll down to see a video about the exhibit), at the Reina Sofia Museum in Madrid, Spain. Losing the Human Form was curated by a group of Latin American researches called Red Conceptualismos del Sur. Here is their special contribution for MRR Radio!

Huge thanks to Andre and Red Conceptualismos del Sur for putting this special podcast together for us! We owe them a big apology for taking so long to finally get this posted. Please note there are no DJ breaks in this episode — just 100% punk rock! And we’re giving it to you at a higher bit-rate than usual to keep that killer 30-year-old cassette tape sound quality intact.
