MP3: "Mean to be Mean" by the Getback, Playing Free Sweat Records Show on Saturday
Earlier this week Crossfade featured an interview with Mr. Flores and in that same interview we debuted a video of the track "Mean to Be Mean." It was recorded this past fall inone take, like a well-oiled machine, with the lineup of Jose Flores (guitar/vocals), Gus Rod (guitar), Danny Palacios (bass), and Juan Manuel Rotulo (drums).
Here they let some of their more straightforward rock influences (read: mellow Guns and Roses) dictate the path, so it might seem a little off-kilter for older fans. Still, the tongue-in-cheek, uh, cheekiness that made them dears to begin with is still there.
