Reaccion Direkta Bio:
Paraphrased from the band's website:
Reaccion Direkta are a punk rock band from Costa Rica. They started in 2002 as a project between friends. Through the years, their musical style and lyrical focus became more defined. The music of the band is a mix of California style and Latin American passion. The lyrics are based on personal experiences and social conscience, the ideology as a band is always looking to improve every day through effort and dedication.
Reacción Direkta is the mix of 4 guys who see each other first as
friends then as musicians, Rolando Borel (vocals, guitar),
Alfonso "Funky" Pacheco (guitar, chorus), Jorge "Pocho" Barrientos
(drums) and Salvador Noguera (bass, chorus).
The Band in November 2010 released their first studio material, an EP with 7 songs recorded and mixed at Audio Bushido Productions, San José, Costa Rica by Juan Pablo Calvo and mastered by Jason Livermore
in Blasting Room Studio, Fort Collins, USA.
The title of the EP is "¿Cuál Democracia?" which serves as a sarcastic means of asking ourselves whether the system in which we live is truly a "democracy," or if it favors only a few.
Reacción Direkta has been lucky to share the stage with bands
like The Misfits, NOFX, The Casualties, Bouncing Souls, SNFU, After the Fall, A Wilhelm Scream, and Millencolin.
