The Codfather’s “Catch of the Week” is Spanish Rockers Guadalupe Plata (Silver Mountain) Check them out on this week’s Alternative Jukebox radio show #29

The Cod Crew had the pleasure of seeing the Spanish blues trio Guadalupe Plata at the Brudenell in Leeds 09.06.2019.

We were soon submerged deep into a demonic Spanish rockabilly set of the highest order. Hypnotic vocals with tribal/ceremonial drum beats captivated the Brudenell crowd. You don’t need to speak Spanish to know that they aren’t singing about rainbows and puppy dogs. Trippy and Fuzzy with an atmospheric hiss, these guys are a must see.

Thanks to Gino Bambino for letting us play his music!!!

This, my friends, is the rock n’ roll you never stopped believing in! If these songs don’t move you to dance, shout in delight, get feisty with your significant other, and perhaps break some minor laws, you are surely beyond helping. No existing band has a better grasp on how to create punk rock n’ roll music that ticks every imaginable box. Fast and louder Blog
