5 de Copas is the seventh studio album by the Argentine punk band Flema , and the last with Ricky Espinosa , released in 2002. The five of glasses in the tarot, can suggest not only a disappointment about oneself, but also often represents a strong disappointment in someone or other people. [ 1 ]


Last musical production with the participation of Ricky Espinosa , singer and leader of the band, until 2002, better known as "Ricky the Kill" who died on May 30, 2002 , in the Buenos Aires neighborhood of Avellaneda . [ 2 ] [ 3 ]

Unlike other albums of the band, the production of 5 cups has a more melodic sound, although it maintains the aggressive and Anarcopunk style that characterized the band.

The song "LAMINA" is the anagram of ANIMAL , an Argentinian heavy metal and nu metal band , while "Fan people" is a reference to the group Fun People , and also bears a lot of resemblance to the song "The Beautiful People" by the singer Marilyn Manson .
