Bull y Los Bufalos just released a music video for their latest single "Dinero Primero", from their new EP Fury, and to celebrate we asked lead singer & songwriter Diego "Bull" Avello to tell us about track. Here is the story:

"Dinero Primero" (Money first in English), It's not a materialist song. I'm trying to portray the difficulties and the struggles of musicians during their career versus the low payments receive. I'm just asking for our reward. We live the road, and we live the rock and roll, and we want to keep living that, but I also think that every musician deserves a fair payment for their work. It's not that I'm thinking that money is the number one thing but, you get to a point in a musician's career, where you add up the amount of effort and hours worked, where you realize you have to balance and demand a fair wage and reward. Of course without sacrificing your art or your music, a musician should never sell his soul. (continue)

Singled Out: Jay And The Cooks' Poor Everybody

Jay And The Cooks' Jay Ryan tells us about their song "Poor Everybody" from their latest album, "Dried Up Dreams". Here is the story:

I usually come up with a title and write the song back from that. So, I was thinking "this political and social situation we're living through really is dire".

I couldn't read a book, I was obsessed with the impeachments, with proto-fascist groups parading around in military gear, with the feckless opposition in the USA as well as a major political party in the States slipping back to 1933. At that point it was "Poor Me", I was ranting every morning which was practically ruining my marriage and then I thought "Poor Everybody" because if the brownshirts get the power we're all in it together.
