flamenco glam and kraut rumba

via Marcos Gendre of Rockdelux magazine in Spain, word reaches me of the phenomenon of glam flamenco!



also rumba glam



not sure where the glam is in this



this is postpunk flamenco (says Marcos)




acid rock flamenco (although to me it sounds more blues-rock - good drumming though)




also rated by Marcos, although I'm not sure if there's much flamenco or any glam here (again neat drumming)




and a contemporary band he rates highly - purveying "post-punk kraut-rumba"






bonus suggestion from Fernando Ramirez Ruiz in the comments - "a song to glam, "The King of Glam", who is forever in 73 with Bowie and T-Rex according to lyrics"

  1. This is also from Spain (although the singer was born in Mexico), a song to glam, "The King of Glam", who is forever in 73 with Bowie and T-Rex according to lyrics. A very popular group this one.

  2. Just remembered something: In an interview with one of the Auserón brothers from Radio Futura, widely regarded as one of the best spanish rock bands, he said the watershed musical moment for them was when they heard a fusion of some traditional spanish music I can´t remember (maybe flamenco or rumba or something like that) with Brian Eno.

    I can´t tell if there´s really something Enoesque in there but Radio Futura made some great songs:

  3. Great band, great lyrics, and always looking for new directions, their second and fourth albums are awesome. This one is like a latin Talking Heads' version, without Eno...
