The Chicago, IL trio Muchacha -- Alex Acevedo (guitar and vocals), Mike Ronek (bass), and Trent Anderson (drums) is a self-described "rock band with really loud guitars and super-fast drums." And if you're a fan of such reckless punk-pop as Foo Fighters and Superchunk, chances are you'll dig the energetic rock of Muchacha. Although the band lists such 70's acts as Blondie, the Ramones, and the Damned as their chief influences, the music on their self-titled debut album (released on the Slipdisc label in 1997) is much similar to their 90's contemporaries. Still, the band has the talent and know-how to come up with some very catchy and strong material - - a combination of precise bashing with (thankfully) underproduced sounds.
