Just when you think you know a band they go all mariachi on you. Rumors are abound that The Bronx's 2009 release will be a mariachi album.
The New York borough of the Bronx was named after a patsy. Captain Jonas Joanssen Bronck owned a 500 acre farm in the area below 150th street. He only lived there 4 years. In retribution for a series of Dutch East Indian Company raids on the Lenape, the indigenous people killed Broncks for being blonde in the wrong place at the wrong time. By my measure that makes the Bronx, mariachi or not, the one true Bronx.
