This is one of many projects by Julio Rey of The Lead and Frank’s Enemy. You could download the first side free online. This is really all over the map stylistically – from the punk opening song, to rockers, to various other styles and experimentation. Seems like Julio agrees as well:

“Musical styles in order of appearance are punk, reggae with a touch of mariachi, old school hardcore when it wasn’t old school with a touch of eastern dissonance, 70s style funk, classic rock when it wasn’t classic drenched in Neil Young guitar strangulation, country with a touch of spoken word, and Gregorian chant with no detectable intelligible actual words.”

The second side is really a collection of remixes of the first side, in the same order as the first side. Some are pretty similar to their original versions, others are more out there. I’m not sure who is who on the list of people above, but from what I have found online the band members are:

Julio Rey – Vocals, lead guitar, bass
Al Valdes – Rhythm guitar, drums
