12 Days ’til LOUIE LOUIE 2020 Christmas – Day 6

On the 6th day of the 12 days ’til LOUIE LOUIE 2020 Christmas, and someone gave to me…

Los Rebeldes

Los Rebeldes is another great rock band from Spain that I recently found out about. This band was formed in Barcelona in 1979 by Carlos Segarra on vocals+ guitar, Aurelio Morata on bass and Moisés Sorolla on drums. They’ve been playing for over 40 years and are considered to be one of the most important rockabilly bands to emerge from the Spanish music scene.

Their version of LOUIE LOUIE is a very powerful live rendition that seems to borrow some signature elements from versions by Paul Revere & the Raiders, Richard Berry & the Pharaohs, the Fabulous Wailers, the Kingsmen, and the Sonics.

From what I can tell, this version is only available on Corazón de Rock And Roll – a commemorative 8-CD compilation released by Sony Music in 2019 to celebrate the band’s 40th anniversary.

I do like this one a lot!

Still haven’t found evidence of partridges, pear trees, turtle doves, or French hens involved with any LOUIE recordings…but still looking…
