Charly García

Charly García is an Argentine singer-songwriter and record producer. With a vast and renowned career, he formed and headlined two of the most popular bands in Argentina's rock history: Sui Generis in the 1970s and Serú Girán in the 1980s, plus cult status groups like progressive-rock act La Máquina de Hacer Pájaros and folk rock supergroup PorSuiGieco, both in the 1970s. Since the 1980s García has worked as a solo musician, his main instrument is the piano, followed by guitar and keyboards. García is considered by critics as one of the most influential rock artists in all the world, as "The Father of Argentinian Rock". García is well known for his bicolor moustache, with one side white, due to vitiligo, he is the firstborn of a Buenos Aires family of good economic position, in the neighborhood of Caballito. Son of Carmen Moreno and Carlos Jaime García-Lange, an engineer who owns the first formica factory in the country, he was a descendant of Spaniards and Germans by his father side and Spaniards and Dutch by his mother side.

He has three brothers: Enrique and Josi. Although his mother Carmen was dedicated to the care and education of her children, she wanted everyone to have a professional babysitter, for greater order and control, she arranged for everyone to sleep in a separate room. Charly began to show musical talent at an early age. At three, he received a toy piano as a gift, soon he surprised his mother with his ability to compose and play coherent melodies, leading her to enlist him in a prestigious conservatory, the Thibaud Piazzini. At age twelve, he graduated as a Music Professor. Charly developed absolute pitch as a child; the Beatles appeared in Charly's life. Having only been exposed to classical music and folk, he would describe the Beatles as "classical music from Mars". In high school he met Carlos Alberto "Nito" Mestre and the two fused their bands to give birth to Sui Generis; the band at first experimented with psychedelic rock, but its style would be established as folk-rock with a certain influence from the symphonic rock of the day.

At their first big gig, the band's bassist and drummer all failed to appear. Only Charlie and Nito showed up, playing flute respectively, they were forced to play on their own, were a hit with the audience despite the other musicians' absence. The band's strength lay in the songs' musical simplicity and romantic lyrics, which appealed to teenagers. In 1972, Sui Generis released its first LP, which became popular among Argentine teenagers. Confesiones de invierno, their second LP, was released in 1973; this album showcased higher production values and better studio equipment, was successful commercially. 1974 was a year of changes. Charlie lost interest in "the piano and flute" sound that Sui Generis had been developing, decided that Sui Generis needed a change. To that end, Rinaldo Rafanelli and Juan Rodríguez joined the band. In many live shows, Sui Generis brought in a gifted guitar player, David Lebón, whom Charly admired much. With a new line-up and style, the band was ready to launch its new album.

Titled Instituciones, its name was changed to Pequeñas anécdotas de las instituciones at the producer's suggestion. The album was intended as a reflection on the unstable nature of Argentine social and political institutions at the time. Charlie's initial concept was to write a song for every traditional institution: the Roman Catholic Church, the government, the family, the judicial system, the police, the army, so on. However, two songs, "Juan Represión", about the police, "Botas locas", about the army, were eliminated from the album by the censors. Two more, which referred to censorship itself, had to be modified. While Sui Generis achieved a different, more mature sound with Instituciones, the public did not embrace it, preferring the band's previous style, so the album sold poorly. Around this time Charlie met his future wife, María Rosa Yorio, a singer-songwriter who became the mother of his first son, Migue García. Charly García continued composing, during 1975, he prepared what would be Sui Generis's fourth album, Ha sido.

However, growing frictions between Charly and Nito and a wearying public prevented the album's release, the decision was made to dissolve the band. Many songs from that ill-fated album were included in other García's LPs, such as Bubulina and Eiti Leda. On September 9, 1975, Sui Generis scenified its farewell at the Luna Park Stadium, giving two shows for 20 thousand people — the largest audience in the history of Argentine rock at the time; the shows have been recalled as adrenaline-fueled delivery of great music. Two LPs recorded at the live shows were released that year, Adiós Sui Generis volumes I and II. In 1976, Sui Generis recorded a long player with Argentine musicians León Gieco, Raúl Porchetto, María Rosa Yorio; the LP was called Porsuigieco. After Sui Generis, certain things changed in Charly's life. From now on, he would be "Charly" instead of Charlie. Right after his son's birth, he broke up with María Rosa Yorio. Charly met Marisa Pederneiras, from Brazil, they became lovers. Charly continued working on musical projects.

He now wanted to form a symphonic rock band. With Gustavo Bazterrica, Carlo

One Life Crew

One Life Crew is a straight-edge hardcore punk band. They formed in Cleveland, Ohio in 1994. Though the band has had numerous members, the most notable line-up consisted of "Mean" Steve Murad, Blaze Tishko, John "Lockjaw" Tole, Tony "Chubby Fresh" Pines; the band formed out of the ashes of Murad's former bands Mean Streak. After releasing a series of demo tapes, the band was picked up by Victory Records and released their debut LP Crime Ridden Society on the label. OLC's songs attacked political correctness with controversial lyrics, notably on the track "Pure Disgust". OLC compared the track to anti-racist skinhead band, Agnostic Front's "Public Assistance". However, Crime Ridden Society's lyrics and liner notes expressed overtly anti-immigrant sentiments deemed by many in the scene to be racist. Pure Disgust lyrics: Don't come over here, We don't need or want you, A country for Americans, Vultures won't rule, In your rat land you belong and rot, D. P. worthless scums, Should all die enraged, Dirty fucking leaches, You must GET OUT, Don't use this country for free HAND OUTS, Bringing your infections, Don't infect our people, We pay out of our pockets not for your fucking free rides.

The band was dropped from Victory Records after a fight broke out during their surprise set at the 1996 Cleveland Hardcore Festival. Though many claims have been made as to the actual reason, OLC was dropped from the label. Victory's stance remains. Victory Records had 1,000 post cards printed explaining their decision, mailed out to their customers. All remaining copies of Crime Ridden Society on cassette, CD, vinyl were destroyed, making it a sought-after album in collectors' circles. In 1997, the band released their follow-up LP, entitled American Justice, on Too Damn Hype Records domestically, with Lost and Found Records having European distribution rights. Attempting to capitalize on their anti-PC image, the lyrical content was taken to the next level. Targets of the lyrics included corrupt law enforcement, Princess Diana, Jesse Jackson, Louis Farrakhan, David Duke and the Ku Klux Klan chastising illegal immigrants, the unemployed. Aside from One Life Crew's songs, the album included various skits, rap songs from Cleveland rapper Shady Shade, four songs from the militant straight-edge band Pitboss 2000.

Writing and recording of the album was hectic and disorganized, with several of the songs written and/or played by people other than those who were credited for them. It was produced for shock value, with the intentions of making a "white N. W. A album"; the band played a few shows regionally to promote the album went on hiatus. After only playing one show in 2001 in Youngstown, with Pitboss 2000, the band returned in 2003, with only Steve Murad and Tony "Chubby Fresh" Pines remaining as original members; the band played under a half dozen shows, released a greatest hits CD entitled 9-1-1, which included songs from Crime Ridden Society, American Justice, a song by Pitboss 2000. Once more, the band went on hiatus. With the moderate success of the 2003 reunions, Prophecy Records obtained rights to and re-released the OLC demo tapes on both vinyl and CD. One demo was released under its original title, Reality Check, the other was a split 7" with North Carolina right wing hardcore band, Empire Falls.

Around this time, Tony Chubby Fresh Pines reformed a band with the name One Life Crew without any other original members. This, however fell apart. In 2008, an album was released under the name of One Life Crew entitled 2KH8, which in actuality was just a demo of Chubby Fresh's other band, Heavyweight featuring Big Tyson, former lead guitarist of In Cold Blood, after Blaze and Popson left. In 2009, Double Or Nothing Records announced that they would be releasing an anthology on CD titled It Is What It Is. One Life Crew once again reunited, this time with Murad and Pines being accompanied by Blaze Tishko, Big Tyson, to the delight of few fans; the band played two small shows to support the release, one in Cleveland, the other in Philadelphia. The show in Philadelphia was met with much controversy, with Anti-Racist Action voicing concerns to the venue about the racially prejudiced lyrical content of OLC. Rather than risk losing the venue for future events, the promoter, Joe Hardcore, the band moved the show from the original venue to an undisclosed location within the city.

Word of the show was spread via text messaging and emails to avoid any further controversy. Double or Nothing Records is rumored to be releasing a new One Life Crew album in future; the majority of the material has been written by the band. In 2012 and 2013, OLC played East Coast Tsunami Fest each year, they have raised a Facebook page and are printing new merchandise. They headlined the "Summer of Hate" show at The Grog Shop in Cleveland Heights, Ohio back in July 2013; the band members said they supported Joe Biden in the 2012 election.
