The Underdogs

"The Underdogs" is the literal translation of Los De Abajo, the Mexican band who first became known outside Mexico when David Byrne signed them to his Luaka Bop label in the late 1990s. Their music contains what Dana might call all kinds of everything (don't panic, that is not a clue to the identity of today's YouTube clip).

"Si Existe Ese Lugar" - Los De Abajo

"La Sonidera" comes from their album "LDA V The Lunatics" which also contains a rather natty version of this old favourite. They even managed to get Neville Staples to join them.
