This week Polyglot Party makes its return to Stronger Than Dirt. I’ll be featuring fun tunes from 24 different countries and six continents. Expect a variety of languages but one common theme: Saturday Nite Party Sounds. It’s also the first Saturday of KOOP’s spring membership drive. It is through the generous support of listeners like you that keep programs like STD on the air. Thank you!

COVER ART OF THE WEEK: Davila 666 are a garage rock band from San Juan, Puerto Rico. They have been around since the mid 00s and have released several singles and albums. Their second single, “Primero Muerta” b/w “Sabes Quiero” was released in 2009 on Hozac Records in four separate editions. Three of the editions featured the same artwork (shown here) by Nemyr (AKA once23) and came on different colored vinyl, black, red, and green. The fourth edition had different artwork and came on gold vinyl. (Click on image to enlarge)

DUSTY DIAMOND OF THE WEEK (a vintage gem from the STD vaults): Servotron were a collective of musical robots whose music combined fun with themes of robot domination of humankind. They were assembled in Athens, Georgia on Planet Earth and were fully functional from 1995 to 1999. “Red Robot Refund (Ballad of R5-D4)” is a solid circuit robot rocker programmed for maximum mechanized dance moves. It appeared in 1996 on a single on Goldenrod Records as well as the “No Room for Humans” album on Amphetamine Reptile Records. Listen to it here:
