Watch Puta Madre Brothers – Cheap Getaway Car (Rookie Records/Bosworth/Baboso Recording Co)


Puta Madre Brothers, Australia’s favourite Mexi-Motown heartbreakers are back after a little break with their third album Amor Y Basura (Rookie Records/Bosworth/Baboso Recording Co). This three piece, made up of three one man bands, all playing twangy south of the border garage guitar, percussion and occasional vocals offer a vision of Mexicallia long since forgotten – because it never existed. You might remember their erstwhile member Anto Macaroni’s recent Cyclic Selects.

This from their label, about their recent hiatus:

“The truth might be that they went to live in Florida without visas, worked as ukulele repair men, acquired terrible drug habits and gave many children a fatherless mother. The truth might live in a forgotten novel. Then in December 2014 they came back to Mexicow, three overweight has-beens, with some urging to get fit, make some more new dance music, and put that stuff in their hair again.”

Enjoy a clip of Cheap Getaway Car from their latest album.
