Review by Mellotron Storm
4 stars I love this band. FULANO are from Chile and they play an Avant / Jazz style of music with lots of horns.Vocalist Arlette Jequier is one of the best female singers I have ever heard. She now sings with MEDIABANDA another amazing band that arose from the ashes of this band after Jaime Vivanco(keyboards) passed away in 2003. In fact I refer to FULANO as MEDIABANDA's crazy and unpredictable older sister. This would be FULANO's final studio album. We have 6 bold and experimental players plus an amazing singer. FULANO gained cult status in their native Chile.

"Huevito" is a short intro track with keyboards, sax, drums and flute standing out before we get to "Godzilla". I like when this settles with vocal melodies, bass and horns.Vocals before 2 minutes then it turns experimental a minute later. She gets theatrical then the music picks back up. Some scat vocals then flute and sax end it. "Nadie Nos Conose" is dedicated to Frank Zappa. We get horns to start and some crazy vocal expressions before 2 minutes that would make Frank proud. "Cancion Formal" is in 7/8. We get a beat with reserved vocals as other instruments join in.This is catchy stuff. Some Rhodes and Hammond on this one too. Passionate vocals end it. "Rrope Cochi Loma" opens with piano then it slowly builds. Soft vocals arrive as it calms back down. Check her out after 2 minutes. Man she can sing ! Some nice bass work here too.

"Mas Alla Del Deber" has a groovy sound and this is about as normal as this band gets.Vocals come in just before a minute. "Senor Gorro Capucho" opens with vibes? then flute and synths take over.This is so moving. "Krikalev" has an ethnic vibe with congas and djembe. Arlette is putting on a show vocally. It changes 2 minutes in as a low key but catchy soundscape takes over. Back to the ethnic vibe as contrasts continue. "Aranas De Tribunal" opens with solo piano then it kicks in before a minute. Prominant bass before 2 minutes.Vocals after 3 minutes and the piano and drums also stand out here. Piano only ends it.

Just a fantastic album, and this is a band more people need to check out who are into adventerous music.
