LAS MALAS AMISTADES

Las Malas Amistades - 'the bad friends' - formed in 1994 when several arts students in Bogota, Colombia, began meeting up to play music together (though none of them were musicians). From the start their method has been to make up songs there at the session, sometimes whilst their four-track is already running, moving straight on when something is caught on the tape. The music is fresh, spontaneous, intimate, spare. It's lovely, heartfelt, a bit wrong, full of poppy wit and beauty. There are six members of the band at present. They use a hulking charity-shop synth and a Casiotone, electronic drums, an acoustic guitar and a cuatro, various small percussion gadgets. Sometimes songs are acoustic, sometimes electronic, usually both. This album was recorded in March 2006, but keep an eye out for "La Musica De Las Malas Amistades", a collection of songs from the first five or six years of the band, which Honest Jon's have in the pipeline.
