La vida la vida me da palo
Label: Because Music
Mano Negra was Manu Chao's band; if you want to hear where his innovative, international pastiche style developed, this album's the place. The title track is a frenetic masterpiece (can people actually rap that fast?), dub goes Latin on "Senor Me Tanza," and "Super Chango" offers a welcome dose of Valium. A must-have from one of the most innovative Latin rock bands ever.
