  • The El Vez take, of course, “borrowing” heavily from the bassline of Public Image Ltd’s “Public Image”. El Vez has always been at the very edge!

  • Thanks Pete ….. Somehow i never heard The Smithereens Rudolph and had no idea The Monkees had a Christmas Album ….. I appreciate the musical assistance….Hope you and your family had a Merry Christmas and that i can go to Belmont sometime in 2021.
