Listen: Los Porcos – “Disco Gangster”

25 February 2014, 12:45 | Written by Alex Flood

“Disco house pigs”, Los Porcos, have released their fourth track following the demise of original band, Wu Lyf, in late 2012. “Disco Gangster”, released on Caledonia Records, is a welcome burst of tropical summer fun to banish any winter blues.

Continuing the breezy funk feel of previous tracks, the faux-Spanish pork lovers combine bunny-hopping bass lines and surf-rock guitar janglings to produce a real epidemic of disco fever. Initial whiffs of Prince’s “I Wanna Be Your Lover”, serve to provide the backdrop to some wonderfully poppy vocals, which fade in and out of focus in a wave of sublime, yacht-rock ecstasy.

The Story of “Italian American Tony Travolini, a young hustler on the mean streets of New Pork City” and his “struggle to rise to the top in the glittery underworld”, “Disco Gangster” is the best offering from the former-Manchester residents since their days of Go Tell Fire To The Mountain. It follows debut AA-side release “C.F.W” from September 2013.
