Los Valientes Del Mundo Nuevo
Posted in Contemporary,Honey on 03.30.07

I’m pretty out of touch of what the new blues punk kids are doing, which is a shame because from what do hear it sounds pretty awesome. Atlanta’s Black Lips have been doing this blues punk thing for a few years now, and just released their first live album recorded in a Mexican bar – and it’s fantastic. The bar gives the record a feel that in moments recalls the best of Etta James’ live album from 1953 in front of a rowdy Memphis bar crowd. This track Boone doesn’t capture the feel of the bar as much some of the other ones, but it is such a fantastic in your face blues punk performance it doesn’t really matter.

Really Cool!

But it’s ‘Mundo’ instead of ‘Mondo’, meaning ‘world’

Thanks, keep it going!! ^^

Sorry, not my cup of tea. Etta James it is not.

This is an April Fool’s, right?

I mean, it’s not the blues, in lyrics or structure or chord sequence… there aren’t even any blue notes. It’s straight-ahead US post-punk, circa 1982.

I’m taking this too seriously. It’s an April Fool’s
Isn’t it?
