El Patapsco

El Patapsco play instrumental music influenced by surf, spaghetti westerns, rockabilly, and sixties garage.

Here's a recent review of one our shows from 4/1/06 at Otto's Shrunken Head in NYC (pasted in from Yahoo's NESMA group):

"Next up was a band up from Baltimore, just for our viewing pleasure and it was aural pleasure too. El Patapsco is a unique 5 piece ensemble. What I noticed was 3 unusual choices in instruments: lovely Becky on a Roland Organ, Marc on a hollow body Gibson, and Mike on a hollow body Rickenbacker. There wasn't much reverb from the guitars, the organ provided the reverb instead. This trio was backed up by the rock solid rhythm section of Ted on bass and Mark on drums. Many of the songs such as The Rattler, Huevos Sowebos had a spaghetti twang with an emphasized on good interplay between the guitars and organ. Yamanote Line had slower poppy sound, almost like a love song.” Very nice bowl of spagetti, with meat sauce.
