"San Felipe Es Punk" is an anomaly in the history of punk. Overlooked at the time it was released by the international scene, this object contains the essence of Mexican underground rock in a couple of songs..

Polo Pepo came from the 60s hippie movement, survived the government repression of the youth during the 70's and 80s, and finally found in punk the true spirit of rock and roll.

Embracing punk, he developed a unique sound with all the limitations an inhabitant of a third world country had.

"San Felipe Es Punk" is an ode to a poor neighbourhood in North DF where a strong music scene flourished alongside gang violence, alcoholism and drug addiction.

Self-released in 1988 by Polo Pepo and Merced Belén Valdéz, co-author of the lyrics, the record became legendary among the collector and music-freak circles.

And now finally sees the light again as a licensed reissue by Polo Pepo himself thanks to La Vida Es Un Mus.

The record comes with an 8-page booklet, a recent interview with Polo Pepo and two archive pictures of the man himself.
