Mixtape 65 - Generacion Suicida

Here is the 65th installment of the Dreams of Consciousness podcast, featuring an interview with LA punk rockers Generacion Suicida.
"We're like the B-side of every good record," is the self-deprecating way Genaracion Suicida describe themselves.  A throwback to the genre's earliest years, the band draw from the raw simplicity of Seventies punk, as well as their own Latin heritage.

I caught up with the band downstairs from Rumah Api on the first night of their South East Asian tour. We spoke about their recent South East Asian tour, the band's history, and their reasons for singing all their songs in Spanish. I was especially eager to ask them about the nature of the punk scene in South Central L.A. - an area that's usually associated with gangsta rap, and often overshadowed by the neighbouring Orange County and Bay Area punk scenes. It was an enlightening conversation, to say the least.

My thanks to the members of Genaracion Suicida for speaking with me, and to you for listening.
