La Plebe - Been Drinking & Mexican Lotería Shaped Picture Disk
Known during their heyday as one of the hardest working bands in the Bay Area, LA PLEBE teamed up with Pirates Press Records to release this gem into the world. As these two songs are sung in English (most of LA PLEBE’s aren’t), this release undoubtedly attracted new fans to this incredible band — especially some JOE STRUMMER diehards, as the cover of “Silver & Gold” is simply brilliant; adding the horns, aggro and chaos that this band is so well known for. The title track “Been Drinkin’ Again” is a re-recorded and re-worked uptempo version of the final track on their 2010 album Brazo En Brazo, hands-down a crowd favorite at their countless sold-out Bay Area shows. It exudes the energy, passion and talent that this band embodies, and is a perfect track for such a standout release. With some killer artwork by the almighty Johnny Peebucks (of SWINGIN’ UTTERS fame), this amazing package certainly turns heads at the local record store. Made to look like a Mexican loteria card, the rectangular picture disc and accompanying loteria game (direct from Mexico!) are a totally unique and fun pairing. And don’t worry, it comes with instructions...
This release includes a digital download card AND a Mexican lotería (card) game.
