Song of the Week 2: Mink Deville – Spanish Stroll

Howdy folks,

Heard this song in the Dice Bar a couple of weeks ago. The band is
Mink Deville. They were one of the house bands in CBGBs, along with
Talking Heads, Blondie, Television and the Ramones, but they were more R&B than punk. Back when R&B used to be more Be Bop than Hip Hop. I like it. Hope you like it.

The lead singer, Willy Deville, is an eclectic cat. Shades of Lou Reed’s Velvets in there. Great mullet too.

Fans of the Princess Bride may remember the Mark Knopfler produced,
Storybook Love. That was him.
