From John Henry Calvinist's liner notes for The Dead Set: ...And, of course, we can’t forget Mexico.

The border station era was inaugurated in 1930, when Dr JR Brinkley’s XER began operations in Villa Acuna, Mexico. Brinkley had formerly operated a station at Milford, Kansas, where he had pushed his goat-gland operation, designed to restore sexual potency to men.

The tragic explosion in Brinkley’s Tijuana Goat-Gland Extraction Planet, in the year following his relocation to Mexico was, of course, hushed-up - a process that was aided by the drift of mutagenic fumes away from the town itself, finally settling on the isolated village of El Bastardo. The five women in that ill-fated hamlet who were pregnant all bore prematurely... and their strange offspring grew stranger with the passage of time.

Rumoured to be the instigators of Los Angeles’ infamous Mexican ‘Zoot Suit Riots’ in 1943 (prior to their teenage years) when heckling of local white thugs prompted massive violence, they early showed signs of musical talent, only to be kicked out of every mariachi band they managed to infiltrate; mostly due to heavy drinking, fighting on the bandstand, and insulting everyone within earshot. This version of “Tijuana”, the Link Wray classic, is an unreleased acetate dating from their pachuco punk days of the early 60s, just pior to their flight to Australia after jumping bond from a series of armed robbery charges. And no, I don’t know where they live...
