1998 saw the emergence of "rock en español" as a viable part of the contemporary music scene. From the Argentine band Los Fabulosos Cadillacs to Los Angeles' Delinquent Habits, this hybrid of multi-lingual, multi-genre music expanded to include Monterrey, Mexico duo Plastilina Mosh. Their surprisingly enjoyable major-label debut, Aquamosh, blended Latin grooves and plenty of pop/rock/urban swagger with a little de-constructed blues and Rufus Wainwright-like eclectic lounge thrown in for good measure. Classically trained and techno-savvy programming genius Alejandro Rosso fused his skill with that of Jonas, his vocalist/guitarist partner who was weaned on the Clash and Nirvana. Together, Plastilina Mosh unleashed a collection of Spanish, English, French and Japanese singing complemented by expertly produced compositions. This cross-cultural release defied easy categorization, as there's something in it for all tastes.
