365 Days, 365 Files: Café Tacuba – Pinche Juan

So far, "Pinche Juan" is the shortest offering of all the files I’ve loaded to this site.

Clocking at 33 seconds, the track is a punchy punk song without actually employing very many punk conventions. There’s the double-time tempo, the shouted vocals and the concise length. That could be considered punk.

The rest of the song is propelled by accordion, bass and keyboards.

It could be argued the song isn’t really punk at all — just very hopped up traditional Mexican music. Perhaps some aspect of that remains.

But pogo-ing to this song wouldn’t be inappropriate.
