Puya is a Progressive Metal band (with inflences from Thrash, Groove, Rap, Funk, Jazz, Salsa and other latin music sounds) from Puerto Rico (yes, there’s also a rapper in Romania called Puya but they have no links between them). For all of you all the rare demo and all the non-album songs I managed to find. Okay, I couldn’t find some (luckily only a couple of alternate edits and a fake remix) plus I didn’t inserted an outtake (because it was officially released later) but I’ve still listed these on this list as reference (I’ve tagged them with __:__).
Whisker Biscuit PR (1994):
00:00 Mire Nino
07:13 La Raza
09:44 Al Palo
Two versions exits on the net, one in lower quality and the other in an higher quality but has 25 seconds cutted off La Raza ending (along small differences in all the album). Here I’ve used the HQ version with the exception of my custom edit of La Raza: the HQ version until it stops then the missing ending from the low quality version.
20:47 Alma En El Mundo Material (Spirits In The Material World)
From Outlandos D’Americas, a tribute album of The Police/Sting songs done by south american artists (who, for the occasion, translated the lyrics in spanish).
24:11 Break It Up (Sal Pa’ Fuera english version)
From the Sal Pa’ Fuera single. Technically the chorus is still in spanish but the rest in english. Furthermore the only version findable online is a youtube upload without the intro riff. I think the uploader cutted it, no idea why. For this video I appended the original intro back into the song.
__:__ Oasis promo single alternate mixes (both unfindable).
Listed on this discogs page: https://www.discogs.com/Puya-Oasis-Radio-Edits/release/12404696
This disc can also have those edits: https://www.discogs.com/Puya-Oasis/release/2468855
27:41 Tirale (from the Heavy Metal 2000 ost. This awful movie, born as the result of the producer’s Trophy Wife Syndrome, surprisingly putted on a good soundtrack)
33:16 Bridge (alternate version)
38:11 Pa’ Ti Pa’ Mi (part 2)
__:__ Hecha El Resto (officially released in the 2010 EP Areyto)
43:15 Ride (drumless)
Base track without drums (only vocals, guitars and percussions). From Vic Firth Artist Series: Eduardo Paniagua special.
• Sessions for an Union follow-up (2001):
47:08 Freedom (Jimi Hendrix cover)
50:42 It’s Like That (Run DMC cover)
As far as I can remember, after the Union album didn’t met the label expectations the label asked the band to put on a cover for the follow-up album. At the end it din’t matter: the label decided to drop them.
• B-Sides from the fake Spirits In The Material World EP:
__:__ Solo (“Pee Wee Herman Remix”) unfindable and for the best: according to those who listened it, this song was remixed with the cacklings of that annoying “comedian” known as Pee Wee Herman.
53:45 A Day In The Strife (song by the almost unknown Memphis thrash metal band Blister Agent, often shared in mp3 sites under the names of other artists like System Of A Down, Hatebreed and Puya of course. But it’s still a good song, plus it’s important to put it here as reference)
