the mosh

No, today I am not expounding upon the glories and etiquette of the mosh pit (oh yes, there is etiquette even amongst the rabble) rather the glory of Plastilina Mosh.

The Mexican duo was introduced to me by my friend Guy Magnificent who is much more up on the Latin American music scene than I could hope to be (I mostly only know old Brazilian artists that Mr. IMo? collects). Plastilina Mosh's sound is a catchy bi-lingual blend of Beck and the Beastie Boys, with a nod to Elvis and a noticeable Mexi-flare. Throw out everything you think you know about Mexican music, give a white snake-leather cowboy boot to those visions of Mariachi Men and the Mexican hat dance and get ready for a whole new way to view modern Mexican music.

Beyond the featured trax today I refer you to their songs "Mr. P-Mosh", "Human Disco Ball" & "Millionaire" for a well rounded introduction.

Today's other band, Primus really needs no other introduction than to scream "PRIMUS SUCKS!!"


Today's songs of the day are brought to you...
by the letter "P" : "magic fever" - Plastilina Mosh (link to video here)
and the number "11": "eleven" - Primus (look, another dose of P)
