In 1995, the now legendary record shop Wild Mind held a charity concert at the Tutankhanum club in Oslo. The concert was going to help them to continue selling records to friends and acquaintances. But it didn't turn out like that, and soon Wild Mind was unfortunately closed. Los Plantronics played live for the first time at that concert. This is now 22 years ago, and for the first time Los Plantronics' songs will be collected on a 'Best Of' album. No less than 100 musicians have played with the band since that night at Tutankhanum, and many of them are heard in the thirty songs on The Worst Is yet to Come: Best of 1995-2017.
Los Plantronics is a party in many ways, on both musical and aesthetic terms. They have perfected their surf and mariachi rock since their inception in 1995, and no one can claim they're doing it better. Visually, it's hard to avoid noticing their custom-made outfits, their stylish suits and, last but not least, their Mexican wrestling masks. On the cover, which was designed by the artist Johnny Stingray, we see a depiction of how the band are burying their previous albums. It's all done with a humoristic undertone, of course, and it suggests that we will get more music from Los Plantronics in the future. Until then here you go!
