My First Radio: Atto & the Majestics with "Transistor"

Our random tune for today is by Atto & the Majestics and is called Transistor. Atto Attie is one of Mexico's most recognized rock musicians. Originally starting in a metal band as a teenager in Mexico, he moved to Los Angeles and studied guitar and bass at the Musicians Institute of Technology and then to Boston to study at the Berklee College of Music. He recorded his first disc at this time, 14 Rounds with the Killer Blondes, which is still heard on college radio airplay. He returned to Mexico in 2000 and began hooking up with other musicians there, eventually forming Atto & the Majestics in 2006. Transistor can be heard on the album Bifocal, which was named by Rolling Stone as one of the 10 best Latino albums of 2011.

Just a warning...the video contains some sexual and some violent images.
