Nuclear Valdez Present From The Past Limited Vinyl LP

The distinct Miami music sound is known the world over. And one of the bands that contributed to putting the rhythms of South Florida on the map, Nuclear Valdez, is about to do just that once again with the release of an album of unreleased tracks, Present from the Past (Sinical Records). Present from the Past is a must-have for fans of this quartet, founded in the mid-1980s. The production, released in the vinyl format that so many collectors cherish, comprises eight never-before-released songs, a true gift to all rock lovers. Four Latino musicians raised in the U.S. - Froilan Sosa, from the Dominican Republic (vocals, guitar, keyboards); Juan Luis Diaz, bass (Cuban); Robert Slade LeMont, drums (Cuban); and Jorge Barcala, lead guitar (Cuban), were discovered as a band by John Tovar, who would go on to become their manager and be instrumental in their success. Nuclear Valdez grew up listening to American rock 'n' roIl as well as the mixture of Latin sounds they heard in their parents' homes. Their soulful passionate vocals, hot edgy guitars, memorable melodies and driving rhythm section are the results of the fusion of these sounds, which made the group so unique and exciting. Contrary to a common assumption, their moniker had nothing to do with the Exxon Valdez oil tanker disaster, but was simply a joking nickname for a former coworker of bass player Juan Diaz's who had an explosive temper. Tovar recently approached the band members about an idea presented to him by an old friend of John and the band, regarding releasing these tracks as an album, which since 2007 has celebrated and spread the word about the unique culture that permeates independent record stores across the country, and the guys agreed.
