Unique doesn’t really do it justice, as sounds like the ones on offer from Guadalupe Plata are a rare occurrence, so the chance to see them at The Cluny on Thursday 22nd September should see a healthy clambering for tickets. Hailing from Ubeda (a town famous for Spaghetti Western films), the three-piece are in the UK to tour the warped desert blues of their latest Red album.
With the promise of a full-throttle live performance and weird and wonderful instruments, from cigar box guitars to electrified wash tub basses, there aren’t many that can outshine the utter originality of this trio. It’s a sound rooted in blues and rockabilly sounds, though drawing on Andalusian tradition, there’s a raw authenticity to their dirty, honest music. Spellbinding rock n’ roll in one moment, earnest blue-collar folk are in the next, and with support from garage punk duo The Bonnevilles, you’ll not want to miss this.
