Is it fair to assume that each of us at least once in our lives, has been somewhere, a club or a party, the mall, heard a song that we did not immediately recognize, and loved it so much that for at least a few of the immediate hours that followed, nothing else seemed to matter?
No? Not once? Come on kids, I thought you were all crazy like me.
Yesterday afternoon, I was at a party in a club, and heard a tune. I had to have it. There was a DJ, so you'd think the mystery would have been solved right then. But alas, the most information I could get from the elusive spinner was "You know, it's that Portuguese band that does the Shadows Of Knight covers."
"NO, I don't know."
"OKAY! Great. Thanks!
Well, it didn't take long, thanks to the internets.
The band is from Argentina. (That's near Portugal, right?) They are Pintura Fresca, and their version of the Shadows Of Knight nugget "Shake" hit me in the right place at the right time.
Even better, I found this.
It was a good day.
It's HERE, if you're interested.
