the tampicos : that torrid tampico sound

Just one of many fine objects I received from M and C for my birthday last week – That Torrid Tampico Sound! From the liner notes…

“If you like your Latin music torrid, with a strong, inviting dance beat – and who doesn’t? – you’ll love the sizzling sound of The Tampicos…The Tampicos take their name from the combination seaport town and seashore resort on Mexico’s gulf coast, where tourists delight in deep-sea fishing and bathing off the beautiful three-mile-long Playa de Miramar or, for the more adventurous, indulge in the rugged sport of aligator shooting. All of Tampico’s unusual colour and atmosphere is communicated in the exciting arrangements of THAT TORRID TAMPICO SOUND!”


About Vetti

I love good coffee, street art, tiki bars and kitsch. Adore roller derby and quiffs and vintage Hawaiian shirts. Enjoy a slice of my northside life!
