Mexrrissey en el Barbican de Londres

Después de presentar su primer show en el Pasagüero en la Ciudad de México, Mexrrissey tocó en el Barbican de Londres con un gran éxito. Camilo Lara, parte de Mexrrissey, explica el proyecto como un viaje por mucho ritmos mexicanos como mariachi, danzón y cha cha cha que caben muy bien con las canciones de Morrissey. Se realizó una adaptación de la líricas en donde lejos de ser una banda de covers o una banda tributo, se apropiaron de cada canción para expresarlas a su propia manera, comentó Camilo en entrevista para la BBC de Londres.

Después del concierto algunos diarios ingleses dieron su reseña:


The Guardian 1 er nota

The Guardian 2nd nota

"The seven-piece band is led by musical director Camilo Lara and it is palpably evident that this earnest tribute is a labour of love, not a postmodern snigger. The musicianship zings with joie de vivre, while vibrant mariachi rhythms supplant Johnny Marr’s fluid guitar beautifully on The Boy With the Thorn in His Side, imbuing Morrissey’s typically solipsistic alienation lament with warmth and humanity."





The Upcoming 

"Camilo Lara, the producer and remixer responsible for assembling the blend of alternative and traditional musicians that comprise Mexrrissey, puts the attraction down to “The Pope of Mope” and his mastery of melodrama: “Mexico is a very melodramatic country”, he says. At once both grand of scale and tightly intimate, the Barbican’s main hall provides the perfect space for the collective’s debut on their idol’s shores, and for a mutual love of Morrissey to be explored with an enthusiastic sell-out crowd."

 Camden Review

" WHAT a revelation Mexrrissey was. The Mexican supergoup playing their own interpretation of Morrissey and Smiths songs in Spanish at The Barbican on Saturday night was an inspiration.This was not a covers band, each song was thoughtfully reimagined by talented musicians in their own right. The audience was a strange mix of Barbican culture vultures, a delighted Mexican presence, young hipsters, Moz-a-likes and a considerable gay crowd, all dancing together in the aisles by the end."

Mancunian Matters

"At the last stop of their six-date UK tour, Mexrrissey – a band of seven Mexican ‘musical gunslingers’ – will find themselves up against a tough crowd in the city where Morrissey began. It might seem a bizarre combination – the fast-paced colour of Mexico against the bleak picture of Manchester life painted by Morrissey – but Latin Americans love him, with his lines on love, loss and longing resonating with our fellow fans across the pond."
