La Revolución de Emiliano Zapata - La Revolución de Emiliano Zapata

Guest post courtesy of Earl...

Influenced by American psychedelic rock broadcast over the airwaves from the other side of the Mexican border La Revolucion de Emiliano Zapata were formed in Guadalajara in the late 60s. The group won a radio competition and earned themselves a record contract. After signing a deal with Polydor in 1969 the band  re-located to Mexico City. In 1970 the group recorded this, their debut album. The opening track Nasty Sex was released as a single and became a worldwide hit, not massive but big enough to get them on the road, touring US and Europe. The follow up single Shit City didn't do too well, I wonder why. They should have gone with At the Foot of the Mountain which is a beatiful tune. Mainly though  LRDEZ play a trippy brand of rock and roll, mixed in with pop hooks and fuzzed up guitars...another overlooked gem...
