13/10/15 – La Revolucion De Emiliano Zapata – Nasty Sex – 1971

Song Of The Day

la-revolucion-de-emiliano-zapata-ep-nasty-nex-todavia-nada-3726-MLM66797217_5884-OMexican Rock/Pop music in the late sixties and early seventies became heavily influenced by the English and American Rock and Pop scenes. Here’s Guadalajara’s, La Revolucion De Emiliano Zapata singing in English and sounding like a cross between, Creedence, The Stones, Eric Burdon, Ten Years After and various other groups of the day – finally reaching into some Blue Cheer.

Nasty Sex is their most well known song and appeared on their debut album released in 1971. One might imagine that Sexo Sucio isn’t translating as accurately as one might wish – ‘dirty’ might be closer but the language barrier has a nasty habit of not expressing the context exactly. There is little information about them in English but they do have a Spanish language Wikipedia page if you wish to find out more and learn Spanish at the same time.
