One Question Interviews: Ojo Por Ojo

Ojo Por Ojo

SPB: How likely are you to pick up a record based off its cover with no knowledge of the band or music? 

Ojo Por Ojo: I have done it several times with good and bad results but it's always entertaining and fun. As a kid and before the world paid so much attention to old Mexican punk, I remember I saw at a flea market this weird looking record with an eye on the cover, very German expressionist looking and it mesmerized me. The back cover had a bat and some guys looking very late ‘80s new wave and almost goth then somewhere you could read it was made in México. The guy in charge of the stand didn't care much for the record and he sold it to me for less than 50 pesos. Playing it at home was one of the most incredible musical experiences I ever had. Back in those days Mexican music was overlooked by Mexicans thinking it wasn't as good as stuff from USA or Europe and here you had a band challenging that stupid conception. That was the first Las Animas Del Cuarto Oscuro LP.
