In 1996 Robert Rodriguez released a movie starring George Clooney, Quentin Tarantino and Harvey Keitel called From Dusk Till Dawn. It was an action horror thriller and Tarantino made the screenplay. The story is easily told: Two outlaws crossed the Mexican border after robbing a bank and burning down a gas station. On their way to Mexico they kidnap Harvey Keitel and his kids to take them across the border in his RV. After crossing the border they stop at the 'Titty Twister', an all night strip club/brothel in a desolate part of Mexico. Not knowing that almost everyone of the visitors transform into bloody vampires when they see blood. The house band in 'Titty Twister' was Tito and Tarantula. They played an awesome blues in the movie. That's why I watched out for the soundtrack (like many others from Quentin Tarantino). This song was a true follower throughout the last decades and I seldom get bored to it. It's one of these simple songs you make a band maybe only once in a life. The song is stripped to the bones. Just a riff and a few chords added with a good voice - you don't need more to make a classic record.
