Ariel Aparicio w/The Hired Guns - Frolic & Fuck
by J-Sin


Ariel is here to prove that Gay Cubans don’t have to succumb to the stereotype of drag Latin pop nonsense. Instead he concentrates along with his live band The Hired Guns to rock out with a total punk attitude. He takes time to thank Paul Westerberg not just in the liner notes but also with complementary tunes that show Paul’s influence over his sound. After forming his own label Bully Records, Ariel has completely concentrated on his dynamic and snazzy rock-n-roll sound. This is the type of guy you don’t say “good luck” to—he’s already got plenty with talent to boot.
