Josh begins by talking about how the first South American rock bands of the 50s and 60s were all cover bands, often singing in English.
The covers that come out now are more Latinized and musically interesting in his opinion. The first song he plays is his favorite cover from last year by a Mexican band called Los Master Plus. They first broke out with a cumbia version of Kings of Leon's "Sex on Fire", but since Josh is a Radiohead fan, he plays their cumbia cover of Creep, "El Extrano".
Josh Norek talks about bilingual Latin rock tracks. Starting off, Josh plays the Santana track "No One To Depend On" and discusses its call and response nature, both musically and lyrically. Moving into the present, Josh spotlights the American pop punk band Los Abandoned.
