"Ramsgate Firefly Festival"

4th October 2011
Dear David
Thank you for your wonderful performance at the Firefly Fiesta – the music was fantastic
and the audience loved it! It is a shame that the weather wasn’t more conducive but then the
English weather is not known for it’s reliability.
Funding permitting we would love to have you back next year, so let’s keep fingers crossed..
Kind regards

“There is a dark theatrical edge to the music we play inspired by the romanticised violence and bathos in Latin popular culture - a strong element of what we call ‘Trash Noir’.”

FLAMEXICANO! was formed by David Clark Allen. David conjured magical melodies for Mae West, Tony Visconti, Michelle Phillips, Georgio Moroder and Agnetha Faltskog. He tickled the musical fancies of Bowie and Bolan and - fronting his legendary flamenco/rock band ‘Carmen’ - toured with numerous bands, from Santana, Jethro Tull and ELO, to the Blue Oyster Cult.

From his mother’s Mexican ‘zoot suit’ ghetto roots to the Welsh explorers and artists on his fathers side, ‘Papa’s’ life has been theatrical and extraordinary.

Now, after gathering together the most passionate and powerful musicians he could find, David presents FLAMEXICANO! - a high-kickin’ musical mash-up with a flamenco/latin heart . . .

Mano Felice’s expressive 'Cubano stylee' conga rhythms, funk furious basslines coutesy of 'Jim Dandy' McCallister, beautiful melodies from the magnificent Charlotte’s surf violin and sweet French accordion - all fronted by ‘Papa Tigre’s’ intricate guitar and brutal, soaring vocals . . . they rock hard!!!

FLAMEXICANO! ( ‘the artists formerly known as Widescreen’) have supported the Buena Vista Social Club, Eliades Ochoa and Ojos de Brujo - as well as playing regularly on the UK festival circuit.

The live performances are an impressive mix of the well rehearsed and the devilishly improvised.

We have a lot of fun on stage and it shows!
