Los Illegals

Vinyl Records and Rare LPs:

Los Illegals - Internal Exile Internal Exile
Pop New - LP SP 4925 A&M
Sealed 1983 Original, Saw-Cut. Los Illegals Struck A Deal With The Local Order Of Radical Catholic Nuns To Open & Run The Legendary Club Vex At The Catholic Youth Building (Now Self Help Graphics) Where They Booked & Introduced Eastside To Westside Groups (I.E. The Brat & X, Bad Religion & Thee Undertakers), To Open Up New Horizons And Enable Themselves & Others To Play And Tour With Other Major 1980s Groups Including The Clash, Bauhaus, The Motels And Berlin. A Visit To The Club By Los Lobos (Then An Acoustic Traditionalist Mexican Folk Group) Convinced The Band To Rethink Itself, Return Electric And Follow The Path Set By Club Vex. The Group Was The First Of The Club Vex Groups To Sign With A Major Label Releasing Internal Exile Produced By Mick Ronson On A&M Records. The Song “El Lay” Off The Album Then Became A Raza Anthem As Herron Sang About His Stepfather’s Arrest For Washing Dishes In L.A. Bringing The Group’s Rising Notoriety To Europe And Japan. But The Relationship Soon Soured After The Label Rejected Their Next LP (Burning Youth) And Partnership With UK’s Stiff Record’s Producer Wally Brill (999, Elvis Costello) For Its Experimentation With Mexican Instrumentation Coupled With The Band’s Unwillingness To Use Stereotypical Icons (Velvet Elvis Paintings Etc.) For Publicity. Tied To A Label Unwilling To Release It, And In Debt For The LP’s Recording Costs, They Then Illegally Distributed It On Cassette Only In Mexico--For Free. - Wikipeida.... more details
