I love moody guitar music with a bit of dust and twang. In an earlier mix, Mysterioso, I included a cut by Dead Combo.  Their music was new to me.  I was interested to learn from a listener that they are from Portugal and have achieved cult status there. 

That listener directed me to a mix he'd done with a Dead Combo track.  I love the mix, you find it here...   His other mixes are excellent as well.

After hearing that mix I just knew I had to create a guitar based mix that was a bit spaghetti western and dusty, moody, twangy with a little Latin feel.  The result is this new mix - Guitarissimo.  I stole that title from an album by Roxy Music guitarist, Phil Manzanera, who also has a track in the mix.  I tried not to steal too much from the "Here It Begins" mix but I just had to use the Yo La Tengo song from that mix in this one too.

I really like how this turned out and I hope to do a follow up sometime.

Did you know that Anthony Bourdain did a complete episode of Parts Unknown in Portugal with Dead Combo as guests and music providers? I miss AB. Still haven't forgiven him for checking out so soon. Coolest man on the planet. Alas.
