Someone asked for more rockabilly. This is a song written by some friends, Los Esquizitos, performed and recorded here by us, with a drum track laid by their drummer.

Wow, rockabilly with a jazz bent and crazy bass! I love it!
Way to go Mica and friends!

Hey, mica, that's cool. I like that rollicking, ragged energy, like it's about to fall apart at any minute. Or like something tumbling down the stairs very fast. Actually I'd say stylistically it falls a little more into the 'surf' category than rockabilly. (Heck, literally the sound of actual surf in there too, it sounds like. You know, like the oceanic type.) But the energy and the sound of the whole thing, to me those are the filters that cast a rockabilly light over the whole thing.

Also checked out the Esquizitos MySpace page. They're a big whalloping barrel of fun! A bit of Los Lobos influence in there (which in my book is far from a bad thing). I wish they had a bilingual page, though, I'd love to read about them. (I know, I know, I oughtta get a little Spanish under my belt, but it's all I can do to keep up with Japanese...)
