Vesper Public Relations. Los Angeles. March 2015. ¬ The Regent Theater is proud to announce the appearance of Mexrrissey ¬ a band of stalwart Latin musicians who will bring their influence to the music of Morrissey for two nights at the Regent Theater in downtown Los Angeles. May 11 and 12.
The “affair” between Mexico and Morrissey runs deep; the British crooner’s songs of love, loss and longing, with powerful imagery and metaphors have found their way into Latin culture since Morrissey’s seminal 80s band The Smiths.
Mexrrissey will be a revolving collective of musicians including Ceci Bastida (Tijuana No!) , Sergio Mendoza (Orkestra Mendoza/Calexico) Camilo Lara (Mexico Institute Of Sound) Alejandro Flores (Cafe Tacuba) plus more. The renditions will add horns and accordions, borrow from cumbias and rancheras to interpret a new sprit into the songs.
MEXRRISSEY was the brainchild of Andy Wood, Director of the La Linea Festival in London who approached Camilo Lara with the initial idea to put together Mexrrissey. Camilo, the force inside Mexican Institute of Sound, brought Sergio Mendoza (Orkesta Mendoza/Calexico) into the mix to bring together the team of musical gunslingers from Mexico’s finest bands.
Camilo says “I think for the people that know the songs, I’m sure that they will be amazed that the songs can go into these directions of cumbia and boleros and sound actually as if they were written in that style..
Camilo adds “We try to get a glimpse of the poetry in Morrissey’s work and to capture the irony, the anger and the happiness at the same time that has been a challenge.”
