Molotov Cocktail Party at the Korova

Molotov for a while. We are just kind of waiting for the red tape, the whole politics of the record business, to be able to release them.”

The first of those albums should come out as early as November or as late as March 2014. They’ll include songs like “Crazy Chola Loca,” “Goner,” and “La Necesidad es Cabrona” (“necessity is a bitch”), which has a line that says “No me llamo Johnny Cash/porque yo ni cash tengo” (meaning “My name is not Johnny Cash/because I don’t even have cash.”)

I asked him about whether they’ll include Latin sounds as they did in songs like “Voto Latino” and “Frijolero.”

“The Latino stuff is in our blood, but we’re not going to do a salsa song, if that’s what you’re asking,” he said.

The band is going through a sort of renaissance, and will play at the Korova on Tuesday after “cleaning the house” and co-managing themselves with a team of friends.

“We got rid of a lot of the old dinosaur bones that were holding the band down,” Ebright said.

The San Antonio show will be opened by Crown at 7:30 p.m., Los De Esta Noche at 8:15 p.m., and Piñata Protest at 9:15 p.m. For the latter, the gig is a particularly sweet one.

“The band is undoubtedly very excited to be sharing the stage with them,” said Álvaro del Norte, Piñata Protest’s singer/accordionist. “We’ve been compared to them a number of times and, although we’re quite different in our sounds, there are certainly parallels: both bands play diverse musical styles, we both do the blending of genres, sing bilingually, and of course there’s the tongue-in-cheek attitude. I’m not too sure what to expect from this show but I’m certain it’ll be a wild one.”

It’ll be wild, alright, especially considering the Jägermeister sponsorship (Molotov is the first Latino band to headline the tour). At least in the early days, the Molotov members were notorious party animals and, even though Ebright feels more “mature,” things could easily get out of hand on Tuesday.

“You may want to do before-and-after pictures,” said Ebright. “We might be getting a little looped here. I’m nervous about all the alcohol, but we’ll see.”
