Manu Chao La Radiolina on Import 2LP + CD

A musical globalista with a rebel rock 'n' roll heart, there's nobody quite like Manu Chao. Multilingual and multicultural, Manu has been called the natural heir to Joe Strummer and Bob Marley and serves as an inspiration to the world's downtrodden and dispossessed. A huge star in Latin America and elsewhere, he draws audiences in excess of 100,000 strong around the globe. 

2007's La Radiolina - his fifth full-length overall - finds all Manu Chao's maverick trademarks present in abundance - the Latin melodies and world rhythms, the surreal samples and sense of fun, the street-punk sloganizing and the unerring pop sensibility. Yet La Radiolina also presents a more expansive sound from Chao than we've heard before with the guitars and rock beats very much to the fore.

Recorded in Barcelona, where he and his band Radio Bemba live,  La Radiolina stands as the most diverse record Chao has recorded to date ranging from the galloping rockabilly-blues of "13 Dias" to the frenetic urgency of "Panik Pank" to the catchy, grown-up pop of "Bleedin' Clown" and the lovely ballad "La Vida Tombola," dedicated to Diego Mardona and written for a film about the footballer. The radical politics at the core of Chao's creative philosophy are also out in force on songs such as "Politik Kills," "Tristeza Maleza" and the charged up single "Rainin' In Paradize."

As with Clandestino and its 2001 follow-up Proxima Estacion: Esperanza, La Radiolina was created layer by layer by Chao on his laptop. Parts of the album were then mixed by Mario Caldato (Beastie Boys, Beck) with further mixing done by Chao himself. Radiolina was issued exactly 20 years after Chao first came to prominence with Mano Negra. 

"One of the most important musicians in the world." - Chris Blackwell (Founder of Island Records)
