On the cover, a court jester juggles with three heads cut off. On the inside you can see that they are the Jack of Spades, the Queen of Clubs and the King of Hearts. It's probably called questionable humor. The ten tracks on "Atacames", Pendejo's second album, can also be described as questionably humorous. If you can smile about consistently stereotyped, fast hard rock. Pendejo is a Dutch band with Latin-American roots. After all, the inevitable omnipresent growls are kept in Spanish, which brings a new nuance into play. Another plus point for the band is the folklore interspersed with all the noise: trumpets sound above the guitars and the screaming, as they can be heard in South America during the carnival season. Note: The trumpets drown out and surpass the rest of the sound. How all this fits with the fact that the Spanish word "pendejo" can mean both "pubic hair" and "jerk" in German, may everyone think about it for themselves.
