15th March 2018: Las Ultrasónicas – Descocada

Artist: Las Ultrasónicas
Title: Descocada
Language: Spanish (the band are from Mexico)

Another great tune from Mexico today, with a fantastic 60s Garage-rock flavour. The video nods to Quentin Tarantino, David Lynch *and*, of course, Russ Meyer, with four women on a road trip to meet a man being released from prison who they all claim to be married to! Of course, drama ensues…

I love all-girl Garage groups, but sadly they are few and far between these days. There is a raw energy with Las Ultrasónicas that is really infectious, along with a great sense of humour combined with an excellent knowledge of retro cultural references. What’s not to like? FYI, Jessy Bulbo had been in the band as bass player, but does not appear in this video.

This song is from the band’s 2002 album ‘Ohh Síí, Más… Más !!!’. I am off to download their back catalogue 🙂
