Folklives #9: Los Mex Pistols del Norte
Monday, Nov 19, 2007
This week on Folklives, we interview Bruce Hartnell, the man behind Eugene, Oregon's Los Mex Pistols del Norte. Bruce talks about similarities between Mexican dance music and punk rock, and explains how Los Mex Pistol's signature surf guitar conjunto groove is a marriage of traditional Mexican paso dobles and epic Ennio Morricone spaghetti western film scores.
