While 1977’s punk-rock fireball scorched Western pop culture with staggering effect, it also left many of its practitioners stuck in a creative rut out of which only a choice few were able to climb. One of the unlikeliest was The Zeros’ banging rhythm guitarist/singer, Robert Lopez, who transformed himself into the wiggy wild cross-cultural phenom known to the world as El Vez. This jumpsuit-clad, Presley-inspired showstopper is part crusader, part satirist and all-around brilliant entertainer, one who adroitly mixes penetrating social commentary with devilishly clever parodies and deftly crafted original material. Better yet, El Vez is renowned for his delirium inducing Merry MexMas Shows (Bingle-redo “Brown Christmas” must be heard to be believed), so if you crave a really fine, freaky Feliz Navidad, this is it.
