Archetype of the short-life-music-project, if one has ever existed.
Grown out from an alcoholic idea formulated between a New York snowfall and a watering of genitals in the Caribbean seas during the debauch-a-rico fest, The Mofongos are born and die within a day waiting for a return flight from the States to Europe following the causal meeting with Matt Verta-Ray (producer and guitarist with Speedball Baby, heavy Trash, Brooklyn Lafayette and Andre Williams) near by the hotel in the Bowery district.
Hence the idea of trying to record, without any practice before, some tracks as souvenir at NY Hed Studios, run by Matt himeself and his wife Roxy.
The result is two song with Romance languages lyrics: a re-adaptation of a classic bo diddley number and an original tribute to Puerto Rico island. Mastered by Tim Warren.
