Flashback Friday: El Extreme, 1990

Poet, actor, playwright, singer-songwriter and one of the most charismatic, manic Nippertown frontmen of the early ’90s, Luis Chaluisan led his sometimes madcap, always marvelous mambo-hip-hop band El Extreme (full name – La Gran Orquesta El Extreme) through many memorable shows back in the day, showcasing such fondly remembered nuggets as “Biscuit Head” and “Why Must You Funk Up My Life?”

Isn’t it about time for an El Extreme reunion?

  1. Well, You Tube shut us down for the seventh time (they found my most recent monologue about “Adult Dating” too much (Regarding your account: mambohiphop The YouTube Community has flagged one or more of your videos as inappropriate. Once a video is flagged, it is reviewed by the YouTube Team against our Community Guidelines. Upon review, we have determined that the following video(s) contain content in violation of these guidelines, and have been disabled.” But dig it, I appreciate the Review and you can join me on The Rocker Roller Rican Blog and reverbnation where all that was deleted by You Tube Community is available. And Yes, I would dig an El Extreme reunion but Ray Sabater is in Miami, Brian Tully touring hard with his rock bad out of NY and I’m in Ohio doing my doctorate. By the way, The El Extreme catalogue is free on Reverbnation where we are doing quite well: MR SALSA’S PLANET LOVETRON IN TOP 40 in National Latin Charts of 2,121 Latino Acts
