Proyecto Jipi – Spanish Punk with a Brass Section

Proyecto Jipi playing live at the premium venue for original, alternative and punk gigs in Javea – Penelope ( Penelopes Facebook ) … these spanish punk rockers include something as unusual as a brass section that is integrated in largely all their energetic hard rock and punk tracks. The coastal town of Javea couldnt produce a huge audience for the night, where Proyecto Jipi was on the ticket with acclaimed punkrockers Discordia and the local upcomers from Cleptomans De Bancal. However, those who did turn out for an evening of headbanging, pogo dance and crazy vibes were blown away by the hyper energetic and crazy vibrant performance from Proyecto Jipi.

Cleptomans De Bancal did a solid job of warming up the crowd as the first act of the 3-band ticket for the night. Theyre performing a speedy rocking style of indierock with a punk slant that pleased the punters having obviously bought the ticket to view the 2 main acts of the day – Discordia and Proyecto Jipi … but Cleptomans De Bancal can be headlining their own tickets soon enough if the up and coming Javea punkrockers manage to develop a more charismatic scene show and build a following around their basis in speedy punk tunes with catchy vocals and some enticing ecquilibrism on the guitar.

The night was concluded by Discordia. A classic old school protest punk band with lyrics inciting all forms of rioting and revolts – just as we like it. It took Discordia a fair long while to get warmed up for real but as soon as they did the crowd joined in with enthusiasm to the heavy vibes of solid punkrock with attitude and skill presented from the stage. Discordia might well have the strongest national following and largest back catalogue of punk tracks to choose from, but on this night at Penelopes they were given a hard run for their money as act of the night by Proyecto Jipis wild and charismatic performance.

Proyecto Jipi is a protest punk band formed in Alicante-Spain influenced by bands like Mano negra, Tonino Caratone and Banda Bassoti.

After belonging to various groups as BANDA JACHÍS, SALTIMPANKIS and his beloved DISIDENCIA. Carlos Jipi for all-decided to do an “in pass” in his musical career, disappeared from the stage and began to compose his own songs with the special stamp that has always accompanied. As a fruit of the season PROYECTO JIPI was born and the studio album “HUMOR, AMOR Y RESPETO” (2006) released, in a style that could be defined as Blood Rock, releasing positive energy from all sides for his strength, and positivism, addressing issues such as immigration, prisons, abuse, … from a new perspective. A total of 11 tracks and a video clip in which collaborates with the Charanga las Tiesas 301, the reduced occupational center for people (APADIS) of Villena. Txus produced it (DISIDENCIA) and was recorded at the Sonic Novelda. The people who worked hard to help were among other OBRINT PAS, GAIA DUB SINDICAT, DISIDENCIA, Maiki from BANDA JACHIS … It was distributed nationally. The album highly accepted and appreciated by the public and the year 2008 presented the work at every possible scenario and music venue in Spain, satisfying the cravings of fans who had not yet been able to enjoy live Proyecto Jipi.

The cover and graphic design have been the work of Maki (Obrint PAS), note that it is a humble tribute to a cover of the Clash. Another tribute this album is dedicated to Federico Garcia Lorca, and a third the Alicante writer Vicente Ramos. Regarding the songs, highlight the theme of a couple. “Como están las cosas” the opening track and title track, is how bad it looks like things are getting and this “crisis” that everyone refers to. “Sueño de paz” talks about a reality that we splashed every day, those wars that spilled so much innocent blood and that their perpetrators appear to be deaf and not hear the rest of the world. In short, an album for everyone, easy to listen and highly recommended in these times.

5 Shots O’ Whiskey

5 Shots O’ Whiskey. Mainland Europe keeps delivering brilliant new takes on punk, and what better example than 5 Shots O’ Whiskey from Holland. They have already released a couple of albums, and are in the process of recording a third, to be released this year. They are wild, aggressive and just fabulously mad – give them a thorough dig.

Mirtazapine Dreams

Mirtazapine Dreams
A new British act from the filthy end of the spectrum. As you probably know,
mirtazapine is the kind of antidepressive that leaves you spaced out and
dribbling, which is rather fitting for this downright dirty round of in your
face filthy rock and punk. Url:

Laurier Tiernan

Laurier Tiernan
The world’s only 6’7″ queer vegan recording artist, as he describes himself, is a completely loony poppunker from Tokyo. The lyrics are hilarious masterpieces (in english), though I have my doubts Arnold Schwarzenegger will ever replace Obama as president ! However, the raw unpolished punk riffs are capable of making any old punk thrash around in mad hysteria whilst laughing uncontrollably at the madness going on. Give Tiernan a good old fashioned kick of a listen ! DJ Grumpy
