Cuban Surf Rock Band
Just when I thought I'd heard it all, my friend Jeff Angus sends me this link to the MySpace page of a Cuban Surf Rock Band. Yea, uh huh. Dick Dale & Los Habaneros? Turns out, I was impressed. The Cuban Cowboys are smart, and you've gotta love the fluid, Costa Mesa Beach-style guitar. I'm talking the Rendezvous Ballroom here. In my personal version of music history, that's where surf guitar was invented. Now set that all to a background Mambo, and you've got something going on. Check out their official website. And as Jeff would say, Vaya con Carne.
