Los Pirañas Pay Tribute to Luis Alberto Spinetta in Latest Video ‘Del Sol, A 18 Minutos’

By 07 June, 2017

Colombia’s premier tropical noise trio Los Pirañas are back with a video for one of the standout tracks on recent album La Diversión Que Hacía Falta En Mi País.

“Del Sol, A 18 Minutos” is in fact a cover of legendary Argentine rocker Luis Alberto Spinetta’s “A 18 Minutos del Sol”, the title track from perhaps the jazziest album Spinetta ever made back in 1977. Quite aptly then, the video from Los Pirañas’ version features Spinetta (who passed away in 2012) coming back to life to terrorise the three musicians (who also play in bands such as Ondatropica, Meridian Brothers, Frente Cumbiero and Romperayo) in a video that is part b-movie horror, part Scooby Doo and part The Monkees’ going off the deep end, i.e. Head.
