We couldn’t think of a better band to follow on from our Sex Beet post earlier.
In the words of Michael, our doyen of good taste at Crash-Avenue, “Guadalupe Plata are Spanish dudes doing screamin’, amplified Delta blues by way of chunky, nasty Memphis and Detroit punk.” Think of the Jon Spencer Blues Explosion duelling with The Dirtbombs in the Castilla La Mancha…and, er, you’ll not even be close.
Other than a strong showing at SXSW 2010, they’re totally unknown in the States and over here. If there is justice in the world, however, that won’t be the case for long.
And dig the pyrotechnics by way of Jean-Luc Godard video for Pollo Podria. Bonkers, and brilliant.
