Born in November 2014 in Barreiro, Portugal, Conan Castro and the Moonshine Piñatas have emerged in the local garage punk-rock scene as the world’s first Vomit Rock band. The name reflects a certain Mexican-American Garage-Rock which lays its roots in the Mexican/US border and in the several musical and cultural elements emerging from there. Their music, however, doesn’t fall under one single genre: they think of themselves as the pioneers of the Vomit-Mexican-American-Garage-Punk-Rock. The drums, the guitars, the bass and the angry vocals embody this feverish tropical rock’n’roll band. It is the perfect soundtrack for all of those who, one day, aim to cross a border illegally. Welcome then to the border-jumping music.
The debut album, “Cataplana America”, edited by Hey! Pachuco Records, is the perfect excuse to have a go at Conan Castro’s music and hopefully get to see one of their live performances, filled with pure adrenaline and the celebration of the rock’n’roll spirit.

Formados em 2014, os Conan Castro and the Moonshine Piñatas emergiram na cena musical barreirense com o único e humilde objectivo de gravar um tema para integrar a compilação anual do blogue garage-punk-rock “Baixa Isso, Olha os Vizinhos”. Compostos por membros de bandas pré-existentes e também por algumas estreias absolutas nestas lides, os Conan Castro atingiram o seu objetivo logo no primeiro ensaio com a música “Cancún”. A química que ali fluiu entre os seus elementos acabou por os aliciar, no entanto, a prosseguir com o projeto sem traçar quaisquer outros objetivos para além da indómita vontade de compor canções e de inebriar audiências pelo mundo fora com o seu rock’n’roll febril e tropical.
Assumindo-se como a primeira banda do género Vomit-Mexican-American-Garage-Punk-Rock, os Conan Castro and the Moonshine Piñatas são compostos por cinco destemidos Castros que vos prometem conduzir até um imaginário de sons hipnotizantes e de elementos musicais cujas raízes nos remetem para a fronteira México/Estados Unidos. A bateria, as guitarras, o baixo e a voz revoltada dão o corpo a uma banda sonora perfeita para todos os que ambicionam um dia cruzar ilegalmente uma fronteira.
O seu álbum de estreia, “Cataplana América”, editado pela Hey! Pachuco Records, constitui o pretexto ideal para assistir ao vivo à atuação de uma banda que promete oferecer um espetáculo de pura adrenalina e de celebração do espírito do rock’n’roll.

Track Name: El Dragón Violador
Alone in the night
Streets are not safe
Mother she warned you
Not to make that mistake

Behind the bushes
On top of the trees
Over your shoulder
And down to your knees

Chorus:
Nowhere to run
Nowhere to hide
An evil creature
Is out there tonight

Nowhere to run
Nowhere to hide
A fiery demon
Is coming tonight

Run baby run
For your life


Fueled by desire
He picks out his prey
Breathing the fire
You won’t get away

As above so below
As within so without
You can’t control it
Just scream and shout

Chorus:

Nowhere to run
Nowhere to hide
An evil creature
Is out there tonight

Nowhere to run
Nowhere to hide
The fiery demon
He wants you tonight

Run baby run
For your life
Track Name: Sanguijuela
You’re a pusher
I’m a flusher
I’ll take you down

You’re a smuggler
I’m a juggler
I’ll spin you round

You’re a dealer
And I’m a healer
You just don’t know


Chorus:
Leech, inside, parasite
The floor is ours to dance tonight


You’re a criminal
Is that intentional
You’re in my way

Troublemaker
Jail-breaker
I’ll let you go

Dust-shaker
Freedom maker
I want your soul


(Chorus)
Track Name: Cancún
We’re gonna go out
Out into these streets
City with a thousand eyes
That never ever fall asleep

Take off your clothes
And the weight of your past
Embrace a new life
And make this one last

Chorus:
In the land of plenty
Daydreamin’ of you
Eatin’ drinks & pissin’ money (2 X)
In the land of Cancún


These streets have no gold
But they’re packed with diggers
Willing to sell their souls
For a thousand shots of Jäger

In a world without clocks
Time is but a frame
And when she leaves the room
I still feel the same

Chorus:

In the land of tequilla
Hangovers are overdue
The puke never hits the toilet (2 X)
In the land of Cancún

Drinkin’ beer & raisin’ hell (3 X)

(Chorus)
Track Name: La Única Chica (I Never Loved)
Chorus 1

Since I’m dead
Life’s not what I expect
In my head
Things I’d rather forget
Don’t be sad
Baby please don’t cry
In your bed
He will hold you tight


Love, a mystery to fools
But I’ve got a new set of rules
I’m sorry, I’m sorry, I’m not interested
Anymore


Chorus 2

Since I’m dead
Life just makes me sad
In my head
Things I now regret
Don’t be sad
He will make it right
In your bed
Morning, noon or night


Love, a mystery to fools
But I’ve got a new set of rules
I’m sorry, I’m sorry, I’m not interested
Anymore


(Chorus 1)
Track Name: Isla del Gran Canalha
He’s gonna rule with an iron fist
And make you all drink his piss

You’re gonna live your lives in fear
While he’s in charge over here

You’ll never leave this place alive
You’re gonna feel the edge of his knife


Chorus:
No, I won’t let you go
I will make you see
What’s inside, what’s inside, what’s inside of me
I will make you stay
Bleed until you pay
You will die, you will die, you will die today


He’s gonna kill an exorcist
And make love to a feminist

He’s gonna climb the Matterhorn
And declare nuclear war

He’s gonna stab you in the back
Just to sell your organs for crack

(Chorus)
Track Name: I Got a Problem
Yes I do, I do have a problem
I got a problem with law & order
I got a problem with this fuckin’ border
Afflicts me, consumes me, drives me insane
I got a problem and it won’t go away
I got a problem and it won’t go away


God is coming
God is coming
God is coming
In my mouth!

God is coming
God is coming
God is coming
In my mouth!
Track Name: Puerto Anapra
Beyond Sunland Park
In a city by the sea
Streets filled with the blood
From the victims of greed

Fear and remorse
Sometimes taste the same
Ignorance and violence
Are a part of the game


Chorus:
Puerto Anapra
Land of no hope
Gangbangs and sirens
Are part of the show


Extortion and murder
Are the devil’s game
Graft and trafficking
Compose a lethal frame

Crimes with no punishment
Will make you start runnin’
When you put out a fire
The ashes keep on burning


Chorus:
Puerto Anapra
Crime and warfare
Thugs and cartels
Will claim their share
Track Name: Valverde
Covered your tracks today
Another night another day
For you to run away
Hide away

When the moon is high
A mist of green takes you on
He’s coming for your life
He’s gaining on

Don’t you fall asleep
Cos’ he will grab both your feet
Throw you up in the air
Nothing is fair

He’s your truest friend
See you through the very end
Use your head as a check
The prize on your neck


(Chorus):

Lookout lookout
Here he comes
The patron demon
Of those who run

Lookout lookout
Make no mistake
Valverde is coming
To seal your fate
Track Name: Horny as Camandro
This party has gone to hell
I’m breaking out of jail
I’m coming over to get you baby

Just point me in the right direction
I wanna feed my new addiction
Be my little baby slave
(Bridge)

Chorus 1:

I don't care if it's love
And I don’t care if it’s hate
Just give me something (anything) to masturbate


I’m gonna take you home
You’re gonna make me moan
Screamin’ from the top of my lungs

We will be all alone together
Lubed and dressed in fake leather
No one cares about a sick man’s dream

(Bridge)

(Chorus1)

(Solo)

Chorus 2:

I don't care if it's love
And I don’t care if it’s hate
Just give me something (anything) to masturbate

We both know that it’s real
And we both know that it’s great
I just wanna masturbate
Track Name: Guantanamierda
Guantanamierda
Es un clamor
Guantanamierda
Es un terror
Guantanamierda
Una ilusión
Guantanamierda
Chingate cabrón!


Guantanamierda
Es un horror
Guantanamierda
Es un tumor
Guantanamierda
Una infección
Guantanamierda
Chingate cabrón!


Guantanamierda (X 8)
Track Name: I Will Not Be Purified
Chorus:
Purified, purified
I will not be purified
Purified, you and I
We will not be purified


The more I see, the less I know
The less I know, the more I hate
The more I hate, the more I live
The more I live, the more I get


Write your truth on every wall
Settle for less ‘til you got it all
I refuse to run and hide
I will not be purified


Chorus:
Purified, purified
I will not be purified
Purified, you and I
We will not be purified


In the vacuum of my heart
All hope just falls apart
It’s my destiny it’s my truth
I will never give in to you

Look alive cos you’re not here
What I love is what I fear
I refuse to swallow my pride
So I won’t be purified


(Chorus)
Track Name: Guitarrero
I’ve travelled through empty roads
Across a sea of time
Climbed the highest mountains
Became a desert’s child

I’ve lied, cheated and stolen
I’ve gambled my whole life
Killed women and children
Tasted the sweetest wine

Oh those days are behind me
Oh forgotten and left behind
Rotting in manmade prisons
Inside a tired and lonesome mind

I’ve travelled through empty roads
Across a sea of time
Climbed the highest mountains
Became a desert’s child

Oh I feel I’m growing older
And oh the sun no longer shines
A thousand lives have died
Inside my empty broken heart

Chorus:
Forgotten and left behind
Lost in the sands of time
Just me and my old guitar

I’ve lied, cheated and stolen
I’ve gambled my whole life
Killed women and children
Tasted the sweetest wine

Oh but those days are behind me
Oh forgotten and left behind
Rotting in manmade prisons
Inside a tired and lonesome mind

Chorus:
Forgotten and left behind
Lost in the sands of time
Just me and my old guitar
