Once upon a time there was a melodic punk/indie/rock band called Explosivo!.
Hailing from the quiet town of Long Island, N.Y., the band featured a group of guys who you can now find in acts like Iron Chic, Wax Phantom and Small Arms Dealer. They were good, they were damn good.
Dead Broke Rekerds described them as a mix of “Piebald & Pantera hanging out at Guns ‘N Wankers house.” Sadly they broke up in 2001 so finding anything by them has been quite the challenge.
Lucky for us Dead Broke Rekerds & Limited Pressing were nice enough to re-release a hidden gem of a DIY album. Released digitally on BandCamp (see below) as well as vinyl, it is almost like Explosivo! has been given a second chance to be heard by anyone who might have missed them long ago.
If you are a vinyl fanatic like I am hurry up and grab onebefore they sellout. Act even faster and you might score yourself a glow-in-the-dark version that is limited to 50. At $10 you can bet your grits I already grabbed one! Plus the rest of the Dead Broke Rekerds store is full of awesome swag and shipping is only $4!
