My Favorite Song Ever...Once In A While
I was intrigued by the retro artwork of the CD cover when I first saw it. I was told there was some connection to The La's of "There She Goes" fame. (Still not sure what it is) I was blown away by the first song "Weed Bus." Nothing else on 1992's "Mexican R&B" or on their follow-up 16 years later, 2008's "Who Is This Is," (anyone know that reference) ever came close to the raw energy of this opening statement.
From the drums and woodblock intro to that nifty little guitar riff, "Weed Bus" is two mono minutes of British R&B perfection. Almost 20 years later, I still go back to "Mexican R&B" hoping to find one more gem, but it's never there.
