Airplay: Live In-Studio with Los Perros Cubanos by WNUR-FM on Mixcloud

Los Perros Cubanos stopped by in February to play an Airplay set, and—though the set isn’t on the Airplay website at present—we still wanted to share the results. LPC will be playing at Zocalo tomorrow night at 8 PM, so check them out if you like what you hear.

Identical twins Bill and Bob Alessi put out five LPs between 1976 and 1982. Today’s track, “Seabird,” comes off their 1976 self-titled debut, released on A&M Records. The group is probably best-known for their single “Oh, Lori,” released in that same year; eight years later, they contributed a track to the Ghostbusters soundtrack (“Savin’ The Day”) that most people who’ve seen the movie will probably recognize. Your mileage may vary when it comes to the rest of their material, depending mostly on how strong your taste for late-’70s AM pop is—but that first album’s pretty darn good.
