PREORDERS WELCOME!!! UPCOMING!!! In times of selling only small quantities only it's more and more important for small mailorders like mine to have a good calculation. For this reason I list these "upcoming" items on a reservation base only, means, you can reserve it and I know already vague how many of a title I have to order. Thank you!!!
FLAMINGO TOURS from Spain play their very own mixture of rhythm'n'blues, rock'n'roll, exotica and a touch of soul, surf and garage music. You can hear rockin' guitars, a rhythmic beat, an incredible soulful female voice \\'e0 la Etta James, Gizelle or Derriere - elements like a dreamy steel guitar here and a groovy hammond organ there, and naturally you can also feel the wild Spanish temperament. After their debut album 'Right On Time' on A-WAMBA RECORDS and two 7's, their second LP is released on SOUNDFLAT RECORDS in co-production with LA CUPULA MUSIC.
'Lucha Libre' starts off with the rockin', wild 'Guerrero', introducing singer Myriam Swanson's powerful voice, which is absolutely breathtaking. The off-beat vocal-surf-tune 'Mexican Dogfight' fits in well among the cool bar-tune 'Sangrita' with its jazzy hammond-organ and beautiful Spanish ballads such as 'Si Me Abrasas' and 'Agarrame'. The dramatic rhythm'n'blues-tune 'It's Cheaper' instantly gives you goosebumps and charming singer Myriam Swanson almost sounds like Amy Winehouse.
'Dance To The Devil' opens up the B-side as a fun rok'n'roll dancin' tune and with 'Dia De Muertos' follows a slower, smooth exotica-tune. Finally the band even adds some country-elements like steel guitar and accordeon, to the Mexican/American-sounding 'Rosita Went To Jail'.
So make sure to save yourselves a copy of 'Lucha Libre', the simply fantastic second album by Barcelona's highly talented FLAMINGO TOURS!
