So before I could recall that my soapy tina isn’t those same esticky floors, casi casi me rompó la madre.
Pero anyguey, it isn’t your typical compilation or your common live album either. I mean, they’ve only released Vale Callampa and muy commercially friendly Cuatro Caminos since their last compilation and DVD Tiempo Transcurrido.
And at three CDs and a DVD with bonus features, esto es ganga, chamacas y chamaqueros. Not to mention, it was recorded at last October’s Café Tacuba quinceañero show from chilangolandia’s Palacio de los Deportes.
While you do have to listen to annoying crowd singalongs, applause and all the stupid squeals and shit you make when you’re in front of the Tacubos, it’s fine because at the end of this performance your favorite shirt isn’t stretched beyond recognition, your ears won’t ring for the rest of the month, and you won’t have to lament that your boobs might not recover from this squashing.
These aren’t the chafufo pirata recordings where the songs are so distorted by speakers and you get snippets of drunken singing, conversations, and a few: “No mames, PINCHES CULEROS!”
When you play these CDs, you’re almost in between Joselo and Meme in a torta musical con mucho mucho chile. Como los mejores vinos, at 15, the Tacubos are only getting better. I would list more of my favorite songs but why bother, you can look up the track list on Amazon yourself.
