LP version. Mean Disposition presents the long-awaited debut album by Spain's top instrumental R'n'R group. Killer packaging. Produced by Mike Mariconda. In these times of copious record releases, it was sort of strange that the Born Losers -- a well-liked and already veteran band, with three excellent singles with successful sales -- had still not waxed an album. It was not a matter of indolence, since their members were involved in all sorts of side projects, and their first LP confirms that the Losers were getting ripe for top-rank R'n'R. The results are exceptional, indeed. Far from their early influences -- namely, the sound of Davie Allan & The Arrows -- the band retains its peculiar '60s flavor, but their references have increased. The clear Arrows influence from their beginnings has now been replaced by ideas from The Challengers or the sound of The Ventures in their late Dolton Records/early Liberty waxings: raw rock 'n' roll, allied with pop melodies, jazzy touches and film music, without ever falling into corniness. In short, the music of the Born Losers is as intense and impressive as the image they project. We are fairly certain that this album is bound to be a commercial success, particularly overseas, where instrumental rock 'n' roll is traditionally appreciated. The Losers are emerging as clear winners with this offering.
