Speak Catalan? Other than day to day pleasantries (bon dia, bona nit, adéu), neither do we. Might be time to learn a bit more so that you can understand what the boys from Power Burkas have to say for themselves. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AS15bE-SyXQ Lyrics aside though they put out some pretty rip roaring punk / rock sounds. … Continue reading Power Burkas – Llarga vida al tarannà

It's 5 years now since we got Django Django's self titled opener. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DDjpOrlfh0Y&ab_channel=DjangoDjango The remix album 'Hi Djinx!
