Surrender, you must." Los Pirata was born in San Pablo after 9/11. In 2003 they released their debutEn Una Onda Neo-Punque,which included stand-out tracks like "Nada," "Paloma," and"No Se," among others. In 2006, after three years spent riding bikes, looking for UFOs and having babies, they were back with La Re-Vuelta,a more polished album with a concept: "Warning! Perception requires involvement"--borrowed from multimedia artist Antoni Muntadas. The album features tracks such as "Pancho," "Sur," "Lospi Gospel," "Blackbird" (indeed, a Beatles cover) and a special "wake-up call" for the Brazilian people, "Republica de los Bananas" (didn't work). Plans for thethird CD are in order, while the band's guitar player/ lead singer Paco Garcia has relocated to New York City.
Making location matters even more complicated, Los Piratawill start recording in Los Angeles in March. The "spreading-the-word" plan has already begun. Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
