ABOUT POLKA MADRE:
Hailing from Mexico City, these ragged but righteous internationalist weirdos blend Romanian dance music, Klezmer (listen to that punky clarinet!), Brahms dances, with strong rocking beats and ironically nihilist lyrics in at least three languages. During live shows, their sinister music can cause crowd nakedness, the breaking of bottles and liberal dabs of alcohol-scented sweat. They have toured extensively in Mexico, Europe and the USA, playing in the punk scene, bars, jails, schools, festivals and everywhere they are allowed to take out their instruments (if they are not allowed, they will play anyway, until police arrives!).
