Your input is desired for an 80s video.

The Bollock Brothers,

At times known more for their KROQ hit "Harley David (Son of a Bitch)". Radical taboo!

The video above is my favourite song I've yet heard of theirs. Input wanted. Thanks!

Lost in Vide-o-land. [Spanish 80s]

Here is a list of semi-mainstream music I like [Spanish 80's and some early 90's]. I'd like more people to be more fond of the Spanish language. Thus I'm sharing videos with whomever seems to stumble upon my practically-invisible-blog-spec.

*WARNING. Let's face it, some of these videos are bad [quality or just a ball-o-cheese]; music itself goes a far way and with this said.. ENJOY!

Los Prisioneros - Tren al Sur [
Rock en Español, New-Wave] Great vocals, music, I wish there was more Spanish New-Wave, a.k.a. Rock en Español like this]. The lyrics paint a picture about being far from home, taking a Train to the South, long-awaiting the nostalgic return .

UPA! - Ella Llora [
Rock en Español, New-Wave, Pop] Here's an artsy new-romantic well-composed song, even though the lyrics set an atmospheric mood for a lady who cries desperately for losing everything and being utterly alone in the world.

Magazine 60 - Don Quichotte [
Italo-disco] Italo does not often make much sense, here we have a man calling, asking for Don Quixote de la Mancha; whom continues his fight, with the imaginary foes as mentioned in the tome .

Los Iniciados - La Marca de Anubis [
Minimal-electronics, Wave] Aviador Dro members dressed in cult-like cloaks singing about Egyptian mythology god Anubis mark being seen in different places, an experimental low-quality video, entertaining nonetheless .

Caifanes - Perdí mi Ojo de Venado [live] [
Rock en Español, New-Wave]. I wish I'd find the 'videoclip' for this song. It'd sound SO much better, but we'll have to settle for this in the meantime.

I recommend you get the original song version, this live one is of very bad quality, but still great nonetheless.

Los Héroes del Silencio - Entre Dos Tierras [
Rock en Español, New-Wave] This song's lyrics speak about losing faith being smothered in between two lands, and not being able to breathe.

Hombres G - Devuélveme a Mi Chica [
Rock en Español, New-Wave, Pop] A girl left her boyfriend, and he's trying to get her back. Silly lyrics too.. I feel silly just thinking about it.

Tino Casal - Champú de Huevo [
New-Wave, Pop] A girl leaves her boyfriend for another who he describes as a tall Frankenstein. Also criticizes her sudden way of changing completely [her dye, her clothes, her look in general]. The title of this song "Champú de Huevo" directly translates to Egg Shampoo.

Maldita Vecindad - Pachuco [
Punk-Wave, Ska, Reggae] A great sounding song. Talks about people being outraged by this 'punk-wave' that erupted, leaving traditionalism a thing of the past.

Mana - Me Vale [Rock
en Español, Ska-Reggae, Pop] A great ska-influenced rock anthem about being yourself. Ignoring everyone's ignorance and negative opinions about your life or personality. Basically saying "I don't give a shit" in a sarcastic-pop manner.

á - Oyé Mi Amor [Rock en Español, Pop] Here Maná plays/sings about wanting a girl, telling her to leaves her"'deprives, boring" man for him. Romantic and nothing less. Well-composed, the synthesizer adds a great touch.

--- Bad videos for bad people ---

Alejandra Guzmán - Ten Cuidado Con El Corazón [
Rock en Español, Pop-Ballad] Every tough chick has its sad, sad song. Here is Alejandra Guzmán singing her heart out to warn you of the horrible material-lives people lead . A total rock ballad with an attitude!

Gloria Trevi - Pelo Suelto [
Rock en Español, Pop-Rock] Gloria Trevi, notorious for being a rebellious chick. Here she sings about being herself and choosing to wear her hair down and tangled.

[SECOND NOTICE] *WARNING. Let's face it, some of these videos are bad [quality or just a ball-o-cheese]; music itself goes a far way and with this said.. ENJOY!

More to come!!

Flea Market Weekend Treasures

I like to shop for a lot of different 'used' things. I believe everything has a story to tell.

This Sunday I headed down to a flea-market in Valencia I bought a working Atari 2600 with over 12 games in their original box with the 2600 manuals/ads. I also bought a "Music Maker" lap harp and a Yamaha Digital Drum Machine, both are nothing rare but they are something I did not previously own.

The Hawaiian Pups

The Hawaiian Pups, My New Yorker friends! Klett, Terelle, and the lovely Shanahan.

The Hawaiian Pups were an obscure synth-wave group hailing from NYC in the 1980's. Signed by Portrait Records/CBS. Recorded Split Second Precision at Penny Lane studios, and recorded an unreleased music video, which is thought to be a legend, now uncovered, whom I saw with my own eyes at HotHead Studios] video for Young Boys.

Their sound is often quirky and attractive. Sound engineer masters and artists of all trades.

They are highly recommended to fellow collectors of one-of-a-kind bands that leave your mouth drooling for more.

Ironically, they still seem as unique as can be.

Here is their official website along with their official profile and a fanclub:
