The fertile Angeleno independent hip-hop scene, populated by the likes of Beck and Sukia, was crashed in 1998 by the two Mexicans from Monterrey who record as Plastilina Mosh. Programmer Alejandro Rosso and vocalist/guitarist Jonaz, who have also been compared to the Beastie Boys, debuted to the American public at the South by Southwest music conference in Austin, TX. Party- pumpin' numbers like "Monster Truck" is edgy but not humorless, keeping one foot on the dance floor and one in the mosh pit.
Perhaps there is no singular word to describe the unique sound of Plastilina Mosh. In many words, their sound is a combo meal of '60s sleazy-listening, '70s disco/funk, '80s punk/new wave, and '90s hip hop all microwaved to perfection. Mixing English and Spanish lyrics, their songs perfectly reflect a kind of bordertown internationalism - like some hip cantina with CNN and MTV satellite-dished in.
