    • I am interested in seeing some of the other local acts too here in Sydney like Royal Headache (who I hear played Gonerfest recently and have heard good things about), and the Straight Arrows. Also Frowning Clouds, who I have been remiss in not seeing before.

    • Course they're not coming to Adelaide...

      All the tour agencies are on the east coast and so we don't exist!

      But I having said that........ can't wait to see the Sonics!!!!!!

    • Hehehe yeah it IS pretty big! I am really looking forward to this, have registered for the pre-sale.

      Wow that's a bummer, but there must be more on the bill, or are they not doing the 3 venue thing there?

      So vibed, saw Steve Mcdonald play with Off! here recently - who were amazing BTW.

      I played a show with Hoodoo Gurus and Red Kross in a large venue here back in '94, those two bands alone were a great team-up, I can't wait to see that again ...

    • Jeez! Waddayamean howzat for a 'mini' festival. What's that 11 bands? Not exactly mini. The Fleshtones? Really?

      It's only the Hoodoos and The Sonics listed for Adelaide. Damn.

    • Yeah , I found a similar comp in Mexico , with Garage - era and Psych and Hard Rock bands. All good stuff. I don't have it handy , now....But it was'nt $25 , like a lot of those Love , Peace and Poetry collections tend to be... Los Dig Dugs , I found about several years ago , they have a bit of a cult following in The U.S.

    • Mina , Cool video. It sounds like The Shadows meet The Tijuana Brass!

    • This is a great track. I play it , sometimes , when I play all - Mexican R'n'R DJ sets . It gives you a good idea of how these early bands interpreted the American stuff , adding their own wildness to it.... But , it's not actually an Elvis cover. The intro does sound like "Heartbreak Hotel" , but , it's one of their tunes. Then did do some cool Elvis covers like " Es No Importante" (Baby , I Don't Care.). They were in a few movies like this one. I don't have any of 'em.

      Yes indeed  try ...Alberto Y los Trios Paranoias [ not south american but UK 70's punk ...still v. cool ]  look youtube for 'Kill' 'Gobbing on Life' etc  - maybe someone should complile the definitive list of bands with 'Los' innit ; )

      John Battles said : They (Alberto.) had a great song called "Fuck You" (Such originality.) that I even remember hearing on (Late night.) radio in the 80's. "El Monstruo" by Los Shaynes is kind of a medley of "Out of Limits" and "The Crusher" with the MOST terrifying vocal that makes Black Metal sound like Raffi.

      There was an English translation to "Demolicion" in Ugly Things. You can probably tell , even if you don't speak fluent Spanish , it's about wrecking a train station. And then some.

      MOST Los - bands definitely  kick ass , but , if you're looking for Mexican R'n'R , you will find a lot of Balladeers and guys with big cowboy hats getting in your way (Not That Tigres Del Norte and real stompin' Conjunto music does'nt kick ass.). Still , some of my Mexican friends told me to avoid Los Apson. Too late . But , when they were ON , which was most of the time , they were on. I even went to see them once , an extremely rare U.S. appearance by a 60's - era Mexican Rock'n'Roll band. But , what I did'nt know was , they were wrapping up their last song when I got there.
