Latin rockers Maldita Vecindad y Los Hijos del Quinto Patio formed in Mexico City in 1985; comprising vocalist Roco, guitarists El Pato and Sax, bassist Aldo and drummer Pacho, the group debuted in 1988 with a self-titled LP which earned acclaim for its fusion of rock, ska and Mexican folk sounds. El Circo, widely considered a classic in "rock en Espanol" circles, followed in 1991, selling an astounding 600,000 in Maldita Vecindad's native land; around the same time, they appeared in Gift, a film directed by Jane's Addiction's Perry Farrell. After a live LP, Gira Pata de Perro, the group recorded a 1994 LP with producer Bill Laswell which remains unreleased; instead, they resurfaced two years later with Baile de Mascaras, followed in 1998 by Mostros.
