ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Nohayquepreocuparsepornada is a collection of original songs by Marcelo Radulovich deeply rooted in the much treaded soil of rock’n’roll. Rock, yes, but of the 21st century kind, heavily influenced by a deft use of samples, mangled keyboards, field recordings, toy instruments and lush production. Recorded at Titicacaman Studio in Cardiff, CA, between 2004 and 2013, Nohayquepreocuparsepornada features the great talents of Enrique "Bugs" Gonzalez (Los Lobos, Jumbo, Plastilina Mosh) on drums and Marcelo on all other instruments and voices.

The music is vibrant and creative, a healthy blend of many genres and styles, the result of percolated years of slow grinding. The songs come across as offerings to the great gods of rock'n'roll, to the deities, the muses of art, to the surreal poetry of latin america, to strobe lights in a disco, to seeing the glass as half full, to an existential approach to ascension... little offerings of funky love pie baked by latinos. The album rolls on through 13 tunes, 7 in english, 4 in spanish and 2 instrumentals. Driving music, rich and colorful, a little dissonant at times, a tarty sweet at others, a strong pulse and drumming galore always present. Word plays in lyrics add a lack of coherence, stories told through symbolism, gibberish and myth... some manic dude yelling at you in spanish, you don't have to worry about anything, while he himself frets and bangs thrift store instruments in a small bathroom. Across the street, a blind beggar with a noisy speaker outside a church in San Jose, Costa Rica, wah wah leads, I am the good shepherd who tends to your daily needs, and we all wonder, what would come from a rat having intercourse with a snake? Mas Alla time stands still, speeds up and reverses, we are glad gluttons, and glad of it! Trying to make Fred rise through the sad wails of a lapsteel, lunching intricate, sultry salads en el pueblo, talking about how deep runs the water as it enters the throat, delivered by the queen. Now calling volunteers, calling citizens who took out machine while adding flux at the end of the day, all yell Nohayquepreocuparsepornada!

Production Notes
I initially pieced Nohayquepreocuparsepornada together with drum machines, recorded one instrument at a time, putting my years as a multi-instrumentalist to test, having fun. I wanted to make a rock record, I wanted it to sound as if a band was playing the music in the same room, at the same time, to an audience... the challenge was, how to do that while sitting in front of a computer by myself with a bunch of instruments around me and headphones on. In 2006, after a couple of years of working the tunes, writing and recording in my home studio, I sent a copy of a rough mix of the album to my friend and old band mate in Merry Go Down (rock band in San Diego in the late 80's - early 90's) Frank Gaeta, to get his take on it... what is missing, what needs to change, the obvious thing to me was: dump the drum machine, these songs need a live drummer. Frank was enthusiastic about the tunes and agreed about the need for drums. In comes Bugs. Frank heard from a friend about a new drummer in town (LA), freshly arrived from Mexico, ready to play... gotta check him out! Frank called me up, told me Bugs would be playing at a bar and that I should go meet him, so I drove to LA and we went to see Bugs play. I was very impressed, more by him than the band he was playing with, and as I watched him play I had no doubt he could do a great job on Nohayquepreocuparsepornada. We talked, I sent him the tunes, he liked them, learned them, then he and Frank came down to my studio and we laid down some tracks. I loved it! He nailed the parts and added a great deal of his personality, he shot adrenaline into the tunes, the drum machine tracks I had spent hours on programming could be put to rest.

Bugs laid down some fantastic drumming, which changed the whole nature of the music for the better, but, it became a new animal. Several instruments had to be re-recorded, a few songs had to be re-interpreted to match the energy and feel of the live drums... the album went through growing pains. I had already spent so much time on it, was so close to it, I could not bring myself to really finish it, I needed to flush it out of my system in order to finish it, so I did. I put it aside and worked on a bunch of new music for the following 6 years. I kept it in mind though, the thought of it coiling up like a serpent ready to eat, all I needed was a chunk of time, like the month of December of 2013. Long story short, Titicacaman Records and myself are proud to present Nohayquepreocuparsepornada!
