The Black Angels' Death Song

Los Angeles Negros "El Rey Y Yo"

I know very little about Los Angeles Negros except for that it means "The Black Angels", but I don't think they're a motorcycle gang nor do I think they are very big Velvet Underground fans. I do know that "El Rey Y Yo" was once sampled by the Beastie Boys on their 'Hello Nasty' record, and I think that's what led me to them. Despite what you may think, this song is NOT about the kid from the Jetsons.

From what i've gathered from the internets, Los Angeles Negros got the chance to record their first album from winning a a contest organized by a Chilean radio station. I believe the call letters were CBASS. They topped charts throughout Latin America during the 70s and after their original singer left they became Germain y sus Angeles Negros. No word on whether that was Jermaine Jackson or Jermaine Dye, but i'm thinking it was neither.
