    If the Manolo is enamored of the music of Sinaloa, the jj heartilly recommends the book “Narcocorrido, A Journey into the Music of Drugs, Guns, and Guerrillas” by Elijah Wald. It’s a facinating history of the whole mexican drug-folk music scene.

    Ay, Los Tigres. Que la fantastica, si? I like that the Emilio and the Gloria, until the very recently artibers of All The Things Latino and rulers of the Latin Grammys, ignored Mexican regional music despite the fact that the genre makes up something like 60% of the market. Los Tigres were victims of the TalibEstefan. There’ room for Che *and* Subcommandante Marcos, mis hermanos . . .

    Seems as though the Manolo is delving into the deep blackness of the human conditions…

    Manolo, do you also like El Gran Silencio?

    They make me smile, laugh and dance around doin’ a sort of Mex polka/frug/ska thing.

    Deep blackness is overrated — especially the faux-blackness pedaled by Cormac McCarthy. See Owen “Butterscotch Stallion” Wilson’s send-up of McCarthy and his “friscalating dusklight” in The Royal Tenenbaums.
