So this extremely late piece will also dig into the obscure of my music catalog. It is the title of a piece by “El Combochorno Express”, the house band for Sunshine’s Café, a sketch comedy show locally produced in PR during the late 80s (and, if memory serves me, into the early 90s). “Batutera” is a term used in Spanish for band or drum majorette (“batuta” being the Spanish for the baton used in majoring, or whatever the term is). “Batutera Asesina” translates into “murderous majorette”.
A quick-fire of the #daily365 pieces that would correspond to 3/14-16…
March 14: Elton John’s “Goodbye Yellow Brick Road”
March 15: Alice in Chains’ “Man in the Box”
March 16: Ruben Blades’ “Decisiones”
This entry was inspired by one of Urban Dance Squad’s songs. UDS is a Dutch band from whose music I’ve dug for quite a while, starting with “Deeper Shade of Soul”, their only US hit (to my knowledge). “Duck Ska” is a track off their second album, Life n’ Perspectives of a Genuine Crossover. Not their best by any stretch, but the title’s catchy enough.
Enjoy, and please feel free to drop me any feedback or comments below.
