FUERA DE SEKTOR come from another era to bring back loud guitars and soft rock. With ILEGALES, LOS VIOLADORES and LOS TRAIDORES from Uruguay as reference bands, they have produced this demo with 4 songs that talk about the traps of love, the drug problem and the struggle for life, among other issues.

Produced and recorded by the group itself at La Cinètika, one of the nerve centers of current Barcelona punk, and released on cassette by LVEUM.


Our take: La Vida Es Un Mus once again dips into the fertile Barcelona punk scene, bringing us the debut release from Fuera De Sektor. Falling on the more melodic end of LVEUM’s spectrum, Fuera De Sektor’s sound is steeped in the powerful and hooky 70s / 80s punk tradition. Tracks like “El Mundo Sigue” and “Viejas Trampas” have a melancholy edge that fans of Rata Negra or Chain Cult will have no problem enjoying, but I like the other two tracks even more. “Necesito Combustible” has a bouncy rhythm and bright guitar hooks that remind me of the Undertones at their very best, while “En La Oscuridad” sounds like a deep cut on an 80s goth / new wave mix tape, the guitar hook pulling it toward rock and roll while the vocals add dark atmosphere. With four tracks that are fairly different from one another, Fuera De Sektor’s sound feels wide open, but despite the stylistic variation, the songwriting is top notch.
