Porno for the Pyre

Some guy asked me what was the deal behind the name Porno Para Ricardo, whether it was a name copied from Porn for Pyros.
Well -I answered- I don't think so. Porno Para Ricardo's name comes from them defending the right of someone who is a friend of Gorki, Ricardo, to get all the porn he wants.... Let's say that Ricardo is a sui generis character, a black guy always sportig a straw hat and combat boots. Nice guy, a little out there, and with an addiction to porn.

Let me get back to the title of this post....

Porno is getting ready for the lightiing of the funerary pyre down in Havana.
Since I published the interview "El Inxilio de Gorki" a lot of our readers have asked about Porno Para Ricardo's new album, the new tracks, and the new video clips. A lot of people offered to donate equipment and music related materials for them, which they appreciate and for which I thank everybody.

This is the update, right from the source:

A number of tracks are finished.
Some other tracks are being mixed, and still a few more are being arranged and retouched.
They started doing the visual design for some clips.
Of course, being the conditions what they are, they don't know when the album will be ready, but they'll keep us posted.

We will certainly keep up with the news, and will let you know when the album is available.
Big thanks!
