Following from our trip to Sweden last week, the latest episode of Night Trippin’ features songs from Mexico, expect to hear some rare psychedelic gems, OST’s and even some sixties Mexican TV commercials.
Night Trippin’ goes around the world, discovering new and old music from a different country each week with presenter Steven Dove sitting alongside Far Out’s Lee Thomas.
Exploring elements of Mexican rock music, which is more commonly referred to as ‘rock nacional‘ in the country, we look back to some of its early 1950s roots as local musicians became influenced by the rise of Chuck Berry, Elvis Presley, The Everly Brothers and more.
With a little help from Far Out friends in Mexico, we spoke to Alan Ornelas of La Roma records in Mexico City to pick out some of the tracks (you can see the full listing below).
This week includes Kaleidoscope, Antonio Sanchez, Los Dug Dug’s and a whole bunch more, tune in and freak out.
