Collection: Mexican Rock And Roll Rumbledotdotdot
artworkThis CD is a bootleg from vinyl sources, as are most of the Mexican sixties rock CD's (unfortunately). It contains some squirrely gems, some raucous rants, and two fine instrumentals for tickling your imagination about how they might have approached surf.
Picks: El Mongol, El Hombre Frio

Track by Track Review


El Mongol dotdotdot
Mexican Chinese Takeout (Instrumental)

A stereotypical Chinese intro and melody line are supported by a simple trite format. Both fun and cool, because that's the only way LLDR can do it.

El Hombre Frio dotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

This instro is a relatively trad variation of the Mexican standard, with guitar lead, Mariachi screams, and raw instrumentation. Fun and infectious. This band's version of "Louie Louie" is grand, and worth a listen if you encounter it.
