Guadalupe Plata is a rockin' and rollin' dirty blues trio that hails from Ubeda, Spain. Pedro de Dios Barcelo handles the guitar and vocals, Paco Luis Martos wields the washtub bass, and Carlos Jimena keeps time on the drums. Their devilish, rhythmic rock and roll draws inspiration from legendary American blues artists such as John Lee Hooker and R.L.Burnside, with the madness of Screamin' Jay Hawkins, the sweet sound of Tampa Red, the killer slide guitar of Elmore James, and the essence of Son House. The band kicks out on instrumental blues chock full of slide guitar. The vocals are lo-fi, distorted, and hypnotizing, sounding like Spanish voo-doo chants.
