MARTIN SORRONDEGUY

July 25 Flyer

For ONE DAY ONLY, Martin Sorrondeguy (singer of Needles, Los Crudos and Limp Wrist) will have on display photos from his book “Get Shot: A Visual Diary, 1985-2012,” in which he documents 27 years of punk music and culture. His book, prints, and other merchandize will be available for purchase.

FREE!! / ALL AGES / 5PM – 9PM

+ DJ Iniciales B.B. (from Buenos Aires, Argentina)

*****************************************************************

Martin Sorrondeguy was born in Montevideo, Uruguay, grew up in Chicago, Illinois, USA. He sang about many issues facing Spanish speaking minorities in the U.S. as the vocalist for Los Crudos. The band recorded in both Spanish and English, releasing many recordings, and toured in South America and Mexico, as well as the U.S. and Canada. At the same time, Sorrondeguy started his independent record label, Lengua Armada Discos. While in Los Crudos, Sorrondeguy began making his documentary film Beyond The Screams: A U.S. Latino Hardcore Punk Documentary. The film was released in 2004.

It was during the time he was vocalist for Los Crudos that Sorrondeguy made his sexuality public and began to speak out about it. In 1997, he appeared in Scott Treleaven’s documentary film Queercore: A Punk-U-Mentary and spoke about being gay in the hardcore punk scene. In the 2000s, Sorrondeguy put together a new band called Limp Wrist, a straight edge queercore band. In 2001, he was featured in the Punk Planet publication We Owe You Nothing. In 2002, he appeared in the “Queer Punk” issue of the long running San Francisco-based punk zine Maximum Rock n Roll speaking with musicians such as Aaron Detroit of The Little Deaths, Cookie Tuff of Subtonix and members of Sta-Prest. In 2006, Limp Wrist toured the U.S. and began recording for a new album, to be released in 2007
