From the middle of riots that stormed their home country, Chile, comes Pesadilla. Long overdue flexi from these young punks.  Screaming about the raw and violent reality that is behind the "Chilean miracle." The music and the lyrics are raw and urgent punk influenced by 80’s Japanese classics. Deadless Muss, Kuro, Gas, Gas Mask etc. Wrapped in a blanket of very dirty Latinoamerican sound.

Our take: When I picked up this record, the first thing I noticed was its packaging design, a pitch-perfect homage to early 80s Japanese punk. This shit is detail oriented, with elements like the paper stock and center label layout feeling like they were beamed in from another place and time. Those are records that are very close to our hearts at Sorry State. When I stopped by our office / practice space earlier tonight, I heard a band practicing who was drawing from the same well, and several of the people whose staff picks you read in our newsletter spend our time and money chasing down original pressings of this stuff. Pesadilla clearly loves that whole world of 80s Japanese punk just as much as we do. The music lives up to the packaging too, capturing the exciting, underground feel of those records without feeling stiff or labored over. If you have a youtube play history littered with names like L.S.D., Gai, Execute, the Clay, and Mobs, you will love everything about this. Like the Sirkka demo from 2020, this record wears its influences on its sleeve yet still sounds vital and relevant.
