DR. LAKRA

[00]

— These records are; cumbia, heavy metal, urban rock, punk, tropical, reggae. I got them in diferent places, I found some in a recent trip to Monterrey, others in London, Mexico City, and Oaxaca. I bought the Motorhead record in Italy, and I got some in exchange of tattoos. Besides the music I am interested in the covers, but sometimes I just get them to remember a period of my life or because they have a visual value for me. They become a graphic object more than a musical product. I like some records for both their music and their covers, as with the GBH record or the Srachleeperry record, which I use as a reference in my work. 15 Joyitas is really a gem, I have followed that label for years.
