Boom Boom Kid

A song about beaten, murdered and disappeared women from one of Argentine’s most prolific alternative artists.

Perhaps, Nekro is one of the most iconic indie musicians of Argentina: he founded the hardcore group Fun People at the endings of the 80s, which turned to be a cult band in the 90s. He also founded the label Ugly Records, intended to publish Fun People albums and his next projects.

The band disintegrated in 2001 and Carlos Rodríguez (his actual name) founded Boom Boom Kid. With this new group he published many albums, singles, 7”, vinyls, zines and books. In this prolific spirit, he planned to publish 4 albums just in 2017: one for each season.

The first of it is the autumn one (“El disco de otoño”), and the first track we listened in advance is “Flores rotas”, a song about beaten, murdered and disappeared women, right on time for the March Women and the Argentinean massive feminist movement #NiUnaMenos.

Boom Boom Kid is a fervent militant for women, LGBT and animals rights since the very beginning of his career. This is a recurrent theme in his vast work, definitely a very important voice in Argentinean culture.
