DWC1050, Dirty Water Records
Garage Punk, LP, CD, Download
One of the most dynamic groups you could wish to see, this is surely how The Sonics would sound were they were young guys in their twenties today in the early 21st Century . . . if they were from Spain. Faster than a fast food order from a chick on roller skates, this is more a gang than a band, and are here to fuck shit up and die young!
Spain’s garage rock kings make the craziest and noisiest Latino rock’n’roll music ever – a mixture of seventies punk rock and the the most fun sixties garage band sounds. Their live shows are legendary all over Europe – whether they’re new to you or are your favourite band, they are simply irresistable. The songs are fast, loud, cheap, nasty, snotty, catchy, sweaty, simple yet tight tunes that will stick to your head like superglue! And they really know how to translate a rock’n’roll party to a recording. As one reviewer said of their last album, “One gets a straight punch of beer-soaked realism that’s the closest thing to a reproduction of a live show... the band connects with the audience by shooting sonic adrenaline straight to the brainstem.”
Like putting up a good fight or making out in the back seat of a vintage Chevy this is a band that will get your blood pumping, your heart racing, your legs jumping and leave you begging for more.

New release scheduled for April 11 for this ensemble reduced to a trio from the garage punk scene flourishing Spanish, surely one of the most interesting not only at European level. He had already noticed laDirty Water Records that after two years also publishes the work of that other Hollywood Sinners, and from the title is a guarantee.
I’ll keep this review within the style of the album, brief and straight to the point, no filler. A three piece hailing from Toledo, Spain, Hollywood Sinners have produced 12 tracks of garage punk, which take just over 25 minutes of your life in one sitting. New York Dolls influenced, with the majority of the songs in their native Spanish, don’t allow this to detract however.
Disastro Garantito [Dirty Water Rcs., 2011] is the third long duration of this toledano trio that responds to the name of Hollywood Sinners, in whose formation it appears Edu Sinner, the organizer of the Go Sinner Go Fest by which there are past, among others, Reigning Sound, The Lyres, The Standells, The IBRDs,…
Hollywood Sinners is one of the best bands of garage punk of the state. You will not be able to rest still less listening to his discs but if you go to see them in direct. My first time finishes exhausted, the second exhausted one, and third I am wishing that it arrives. With these sinful Hollywood's ones there is no place for the boredom.
What a description... and it is right from the top down. The three Spaniards on their new album give out quickly to one of the strongest garage/punk publications of the year. This mixture of Brachialität and in a good mood is difficult to.
With a foot in the spirit of the youthful wild fun of the old frat-rock and another one in the amphetamine punk of the seventy, those of Edu Sinner offer their better collection of songs. Also the most sharpened and powerful as far as the sound.
Like many record labels that specialise in a specific genre, Dirty Water is pretty much the last word in modern garage rock. So though I’d not heard of the Hollywood Sinners before, when I opened this CD and saw the label informing me it was a Dirty Water records release I felt in safe in hands.
This Spanish trio has been spamming me for years with incomprehensible e-mails in their native tongue advertising their latest show. Their label's sent a promo of their latest album so it's time I got my own back by writing about them, instead of consigning their missives to junk mail or running their text through GoogleTranslate and wondering forever about the output.
Garage-Punk hooligan and without compassion: that what they offer Hollywood to us Sinners in his new one and is waited for LP! After WE WON'T CHANGE OUR STYLE, of which we spoke in 2008 on the occasion of his visit and concert, the group it returns with DISASTRO GARANTITO to offer twelve new pepinazos to us with guitarrazos, bases at full speed rythmical, humor and bad grape published by the sensational British seal Dirty Water Record.
Hailing from Spain, Hollywood Sinners put a big smile across my chops with their 60s Hives-lite frantic garage jamboree and regardless of the fact I can't understand a single word they're singing about doesn't detract from the crazy beats and frantic riffing. It's all shake your head, screamtastic rollocking fun and at the end of the day isn't that what rock 'n' roll is all about?
