Senior Coconut Fiesta Songs
- Words: Rob Geary
- Label: Emperor Norton
Uwe Schmidt a.k.a. Atom Heart is getting the baile started quickly with his latest Latin adventure. Now a full band enhanced by Schmidt's trusty G4, Se?or Coconut tears through meringues, cha-cha-chas and mambos. But wait, what's that riff on the timbales and vibraphone? It's every new guitar player's favorite-Deep Purple's "Smoke on the Water." Then it's "Riders on the Storm" gone merengue under a hot sunset, "Oxygene (Part II)" for the epic backyard volleyball game, and a percussive, superheated version of the Gloved One's "Beat It"-seriously! By now, we don't question Atom, we just let him grab the band and get to swingin', as they do on the raucous original closer "Electrolatino."
