Ubeda, Spain. June 2006. Two young swamp blues worshippers - Pedro de Dios Barcelo and Carlos Jimena - perform a chemical experiment by mixing the rusty-water-wheel chant of Hound Dog Taylor, the darkness of Skip James, the hypnotic rhythm of John Lee Hooker and R.L.Burnside, the madness of Screamin' Jay Hawkins, the sweet sound of Tampa Red, the killer slide of Elmore James and the essence of Son House. The combustion was immediate, but the flames soared completely out of control when Paco Luis Martos, the world grand Master of hand-carved coffered ceilings, appeared in the laboratory accompanied by a primitive bass, handmade with a zinc washtub, a wooden stick and a chainsaw string. Rising up out of this fire, a diabolically addictive substance shaped by a snake-like, raw and dirty blues, zombie-love lyrics and an original and electrifying performance was born - GUADALUPE PLATA. "Brilliant blues and a washtub bass, how much more authentic do you want it be? As a Spanish act, we may not get the chance to see too much of Guadalupe Plata but if you like the old fashioned blues played by modern acts, this band should be on your list". http://coldbloodedclarity.co.uk/guadalupe-plata-had-the-primavera-blues "Dig Guadalupe Plata. Straight outta Ubeda, Spain.Creepy Hi-LO-Fi swampy espanafied punkass monster blues.Jeffrey Lee Pierce would be Proud. Damn proud. As will you". http://realdeepblues.blogspot.com/2010/04/guadalupe-plata.html "Guadalupe Plata: I got this from a gent at the booth promoting new music from Spain in the trade show in the convention center. Guadalupe Plata are a 3 piece playing big, heavy blues ala Black Keys, R.L. Burnside and John Lee Hooker, played w/drastic fire and amazing chops, especially on the slide guitar. Who knew the Spanish had the dirty blues gene? Amazing stuff" http://www.blurt-online.com/news/view/3528/
