Mariachi El Bronx - (II) Cover

Mariachi outfits at the ready...

When The Bronx made the transition from punk behemoths to mariachi aficionados two years ago, the only thing more surprising than the decision itself was the quality with which they carried out such a bold and (to some) ridiculous move. As soulful and finely crafted as their debut of sorts, 'II' is a glorious record. Trumpets, violins and gracefully plucked guitarrĂ³n once more provide the perfect canvas for Matt Caughthran's bittersweet tales of love, lust and loss; all of which are delivered with a passion and sincerity that only daytime punks could truly muster.
