In Search of Rock and Roll Thrills in Mexico: Part 3

Formed in 1957, Los Locos Del Ritmo were another important group in the early days of Mexican rock. Recorded around 1959, their first album ‘Rock!’ wasn’t released until 1960. It’s an eclectic mix or covers and originals which includes an instrumental rock version of ‘La Cucaracha’. Here is one of their spirited (though undeniably derivative) originals.

YO NO SOY UN REBELDE SIN CAUSA

Yo no soy un rebelde sin causa, 
ni tampoco un desenfrenado, 
yo lo único que quiero es bailar rock & roll, 
y que me dejen vacilar 
sin ton ni son

Vengan los locos 
y formemos en la Fran una sesión
Traigan chamacas que sean de ambiente
y que nos den un buen jalón, 
y con discos de rebeldes 
habrá un gran vacilón

Que se suelten las melenas, 
vengan abajo los copetes, 
Ay, que se quiten las corbatas, 
que se pongan las chamarras, 
las guitarras en las rodillas sin parar 

Que navajas italianas, 
pantalones que sean vaqueros, 
que nos tiemblen nuestras piernas sin cesar, 

Yo no soy un rebelde sin causa, 
ni tampoco un desenfrenado, 
yo lo único que quiero es bailar rock & roll, 
y que me dejen vacilar 
sin ton ni son
I'M NOT A REBEL WITHOUT A CAUSE

I'm not a rebel without a cause
I'm not a wild one either
I just want to dance rock & roll
I want them to let me have a good time
Without rhyme or reason

Come all you crazy people 
And we will get together in La Fran (club)
You will bring girls who fit in with the scene
And they will cheer us on
And with our rebellious jukebox
We'll have a great time

Let them let their long hair down
Let those quiffs hang out (?)
They will take off their ties
They will put on their leather jackets
Guitars hanging right down to their knees

With flick knives 
They'll be wearing jeans
They'll make us shake our legs and never stop

I'm not a rebel without a cause
I'm not a wild one either
I just want to dance rock & roll
I want them to let me have a good time
Without rhyme or reason
