To celebrate 300 entries on this blog, today I'm going to talk about one of my favourite bands formed by people I love very much. Fresh from the centre of the earth and eating it all up.... LAS CARCOMAS!!!!
The band was founded around 1998 in Valencia by Manolo Borbone (Los Fartones, Royal Canin, Ulan Bator Trio and Borbones) on drums, Vanne Tocabajos (Tracy Turbo) on bass, Virgi Carcomaturbo (Tracy Turbo) on guitar and another Vane on vocals. After a while Satu (Wau Y Los Arrrghs!!!) joined on guitar. For a few years they neglected the band a bit until 2001 when Manolo, Virgi and Vanne Tocabajos got back together and a couple of years later they recruited Dora Carcoma as the singer. Also for a while they had Claudia Tocaórganos (De Nadies, Los Loosers, Pissmakers, the first line-up of Wau Y Los Arrrghs!!! and Wild Savages).
In 2003 they recorded Bizarre Rock n Roll, 5 tracks, all equally dirty and low-fi, pure punk-garage-trash-old school, of which "Zorri" is a cover of "Sorry" by the Easybeats and "Bésame El Culo" is another cover of "Kiss My Ass" by the Cramps.
In the third deformation of the band they were joined by Carmen on drums and Alex on guitar and they have played with bands such as Demented Are Go, and at festivals like Pipeline Fest and Funtastic Dracula Carnival.
