I first heard about these guys when I downloaded a version of a Goldfrappe song (Human) that Calexico had provided Spanish vocals for. I thought they were a Spanish group – understandably enough – and was a little disappointed to discover they were actually a couple of Anglos from California. But, the music won out, and I recently got a copy of their Hot Rail album, and it’s great stuff. This song is from it.
I’ve always loved western movies, so I’m a sucker for this sort of music. It reminds me of those great ‘spaghetti’ westerns from the 1970s featuring Clint Eastwood as ‘The Man With No Name’.
