Total Disorder - Condenados A Luchar
First off, I'd like to dedicate this post to the memory of Erwin Infante who sadly passed away last month in an accident. I know we didn't kick it all that much or even know each other too well, but right from the moment we met, you were cool as shit to me and super nice. It almost seemed as if we went way back. R.I.P.
Total Disorder was a street punk band from South Central that Erwin played guitar for. They mainly played backyard shows and were around at the time when the South Central backyard scene was at it's highest point with bands like LA's Moral Decay, All Out Attak, SCRS amongst many more. Total Disorder always stuck out and as cheesy as it sounds have now reached a semi legendary status around here. They are among a handful of bands that have been long gone but never forgotten in the backyard scene. I never got to see them play but man the stories I've heard and the way people speak so highly of them as one of those memorable bands really makes me wish that the reunion Erwin was trying to make happen had actually happened. I know that some people on here won't 'get' it and maybe see this band as just another street punk band but that's not the case over here in LA. They were a big part of our scene and one of those bands you looked up to. You just don't even know....
