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: 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: 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
