Cassette released on Genital Production, Mexico, 1992

Mexican band El Experimento de Cuca formed 1991 around the trio of Armando Carrillo, Carmen Quiroga and Manuel Partida, sometimes augmented by members of an other Mexican band, La Función De Repulsa – see this short bio here. All these people, as well as label Genital Productions, were located in Victoria town, in the Tamaulipas area. Their music blends avantgarde with free-jazz, occasionally field recordings or Tuxedomoon-like art-songs on saxophone, bass and drums. The first 3 tracks (from A side) are particularly intense offerings,, featuring nice female vocals courtesy Carmen Quiroga, along more deranged obscure collective vocalizations, as well as found sounds with the typical mexican weirdness. El Experimento De Cuca sometimes sound like a mexican H.N.A.S. A very good tape. [Note: picture on the left from actual cover; yellow & black picture from unrelated mexican papercutting]
