NYC-based experimental, Latin-infused jazz/noise outfit MAC GOLLEHON & THE HISPANIC MECHANICS has issued a politically-charged new video for "What Could Possibly Go Wrong," which was directed by Michael Baumann.
The band is fronted by world-renowned trumpet assassin MAC GOLLEHON, who has performed with an endless roster of rock, pop, and jazz artists since the 1970s, appearing on over two-hundred gold and platinum albums from the likes of David Bowie, Duran Duran, Miles Davis, Onyx, Madonna, Blondie, Billy Ocean, Hall & Oates, Chaka Khan, Buddy Rich, Al Jarreau, Buddy Morrow, Sheena Easton, Nile Rodgers, Patrick Adams, Mick Jagger, Grace Jones, Hector Lavoe, and hundreds of others. Besides holding down such an incredible roster of session work, GOLLEHON has released eight varied solo albums since the late 1990s, the latest being 2016's Mac Gollehon & The Hispanic Mechanics, which merges intense salsa and jazz elements with electronic/EDM in a brutally bombastic hybrid of sounds.
MAC GOLLEHON has since been navigating further into the realms of noise and harsh experimentation, including new live performances with THE HISPANIC MECHANICS, whose personnel also includes percussionists Miguel Valdes, Anthony Carrillo (Batacumbelle), and Ronnie Roc, along with Eric Klaastad (James Chance And The Contortions, Ozzy Osbourne, Squadron), and noise artist Jackson, which is represented in the new video-only track, "What Could Possibly Go Wrong."
Recorded live at Trans-Pecos in Queens in March of this year, the "What Could Possibly Go Wrong" video was directed and assembled by renowned scene photographer/visual artist Michael Baumann, who infuses the performance with random footage from around New York City and a barrage of intense clips lifted from our current US news cycle and the ridiculous political climate we find ourselves immersed in.
