Joe King Carrasco & The Crowns

Texas native Joe "King" Carrasco has devoted his career to re-creating the Tex-Mex, Farfisa organ rock & roll sound of such '60s groups as the Sir Douglas Quintet and Sam the Sham & the Pharoahs. After playing in a succession of bands around Texas in the late '60s and early '70s, Carrasco founded his band El Molino in 1976 and recorded Tex-Mex Rock-Roll in 1978.

By 1979, he had formed the Crowns and was calling his music "nuevo wavo," playing especially in New York, where he appeared on-stage in a cape and crown. He was signed to the U.K. Stiff label and Joe Boyd's Hannibal label in the U.S., and released Joe "King" Carrasco and the Crowns in 1980. By 1982, he had moved up to major label MCA for Synapse Gap, followed by Party Weekend (1983). He moved to Rounder for 1987's Bandido Rock, credited to Joe "King" Carrasco y las Coronas. During the '90s and 2000s, he added reggae and cumbia to his Tex-Mex stew, with releases on Royal Texacali and Anaconda. ~ William Ruhlmann, Rovi

I remember seeing Joe King with my Dad as a youth. Music that always makes the hair on your neck stand up. That beat though.!!

Saw JKC and the Crowns many times at Club Foot, at least once at Fiesta Gardens, at Rockefellers in Houston, and who knows how many other forgotten venues here in Austin. Every show was a great show. I ran into Joe King one day on the UT Austin campus in early 80s and he autographed my brand-new Kaepas (which were on my feet at the time and danced me through many a show for years afterward).

I sure miss Club Foot!
