Los Strwck: La Doctoriza


For the last 15 years I have been trying to find out what Los Strwck translates to in English to no avail. I suspect it loosely means “Mariachi Fuzz Box”. I found this LP in East L.A. in the early 90’s and it’s dropped many a jaw over the last 15 years. The tunes start innocently enough, sounding like a band that might walk in to the local Mexican Restaurant on any given Friday night, hoping for tips from half drunk patrons. But the guitarist has a surprise in store. He is ELECTRIFIED……and he has a fuzz box, and you can bet he’s gonna use it Amigo. I’d pay big bucks to have seen the faces on those unsuspecting diners as chainsaw sounds lurched out and strangled them mid-enchilada.This band has other LP’s….lots of other LP’s….but none of them sound like this. Grab some chips and the hottest of hot sauce’s and enjoy.

Listen: “La Doctoriza”, “Comunicame Tu Ritmo”, “W-A-Loo”
