""There are many things that keep this world turning. But certainly one of them is music. Alvaro has exposed here some of his very private collection of songs that does not only make the world turn, but will turn your heart and soul around to the rhythm of mums milk and other human capacities.
Wishing you all the best. This is an excellent cassette in excellent technical efficiency and will surely make an excellent present to your Chinese New Year, year of the horse." -- Alvaro the Chilean with the Singing Nose
Watching the pre-Pinochet r'n'r fridge defrost with Los Challengers/Los Bumerangs, sax'ing up Strummer's pub and pube brawls while claiming to have invented punk, spilling the unswallowed residues of his Buddhist masturbatory techniques all over the nifty NWW list : Alvaro always delivers the real people deal with his "incursions into a lo-fi Latin Andean folk fragment-rock-avant garde implosion-dorky ingenuity-cheery party tune-foggy introspection vortex remarkable for it's sheer audacity" (Mutant Sounds). Despite all the crypto-boogaboo, this cassette comp of "Mums Milk Not Powder" and "Four Sad Songs" is hardly recommendable for the middle-aged preppy falling into the dreadlock disneyland tourist trap called salsa lessons. Ltd. to 60 copies and comes in a cute pluche boob that's firm enough to serve any isolation purpose."
