VARIOUS ARTISTS Rodrigo D. No Futuro LP (Restock)
Medellin, Colombia. Middle of 80s era. The city was immersed in an everyday war ritual: police, narcos, gangs, pandilleros… All they rules the streets without fear to die. Young people have very few chances to live free of this stuff, most of them fell in this war against everything, it was the easy thing to do. A massive exodus from landscapes and small villages make the cities be full of this easy people to deceive.
In this absolute chaos and destruction time is where the first punk and metal bands started to try to make something different. Everything is against them: society, family, police, governments…but they have the power of the young people trying to break the rules one more time. Handmade guitars, amplifiers, drums…anything was ok to start this big change. First bands as Pestes, Mutantex, P-Ne, Amén, Ekrion, Agressor, Parabellum, Blasfemia, Profanación or Mierda just to name a few, appeared in the city and built this first scene.
Rodrido D, No Futuro is a film with this same people, the ones who made this things happens, the real players of this real life matter.
