“Kicking off with the boisterous, Farfisa-filled “Drug Thru The Mud,” then the title cut, “Que Wow” romps through party songs like ‘Havin’ A Ball,’ pays tribute to the Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, club where Carrasco leads the house band with ‘Nacho Daddy,’ and tosses in lots of references to frijoles and tamales as it bounces through Caribbean-influenced tunes and, of course, some hopped-up polkas.
‘Que Wow’ isn’t as over-the-top wild as the Crowns’ 1980s records, but it’s a more musically accomplished effort. Carrasco has become a very good guitarist over the years, and this is nothing but fun, fun, fun.’”
We especially like the intro to the Nacho Daddy cut on the “Que Wow” CD with its barking dogs. It reminds us of the noises our motley crew of middle-aged ex-pat American, Brit, Aussie, Mexican and Canadian regulars make when their beers or margaritas run low. Una cerveza mas! Arf!!!
Don’t believe me? Listen to the Nacho Daddy song and you’ll find yourself packing your swimsuit, flip-flops and sunglasses and and grabbing your passport and heading down Old Mexico Way. Come down to Puerto Vallarta’s best and friendliest beach bar, just two blocks from La Playa de Muertos, in the heart of Mexico’s friendliest resort town.
