Los Ladrones Del Amor Short Info

Los Ladrones. Songs that are heartfelt, some soulful, some enraged, but all with a beauty bruised but not beaten by a lifetime of hard knocks. Words with a sort of wisdom that’s come with age but refuses to become world-weary or cynical… that get their spinal cord and heartbeat from a band that doesn’t need to show off; but which sometimes blows you away with a little explosion of off-the-cuff virtuosity that says ‘fuck you’.

Someone called this ‘Latin Noir’, which halfway covers it… but it runs deeper than that. Its roots go right back to the true, proper spirit of punk – which is why there’s some jazz in there, some bossa nova, even a bit of hard rock and a lot of soul…

One song in particular sums it up: I Wear Black. Rueful, truthful and defiant, it mourns lost youth while refusing to grow up and give in.

They’ve all got previous:
Kev Saunders as singer/writer with 80s punk funkers Helium Brothers, Acid jazz/trip hop pioneers Marden Hill, blunted beat specialists Sly, Big Beat instigators Beamish & Fly, HedKandi Chill Out groovers Spacehoppa and Japanese guitar hero Takashi O’Hashi among many others.
Jonathan Miller as platinum disc-winning producer of Portuguese bands such as Madre Deus, The Delfins, Resistencia and The Underground Sound of Lisbon (Rui Da Silva) and original bassist with Toyah. Most recent production project: mixing the new album by Blunder.
Ed Brown with Gothic harp and guitar outfit Schrodinger’s Strings and agit-punk band The Blissetts.
Arup Ghosh in The Blissetts and Jesus Hooligan and loads more.
Gary Hughes with History of Guns, Goldliner, Iva Mendez and Marillion among many others.
Rob Clydesdale with 3D Echo and Perfect Distortion, David Bowie, David Richards, Nick Tauber, Dennis Bovell and Sinitta to name but a few.
