Well, since you brought up the "Pachuco" song, then I might as well explain what Pachuco means. Pachuco is what Mexican Americans who wore Zoot Suits wore during the 1940s. I can best illustrate that by presenting a famous Pachuco who returned to his Native Mexico City, after being raised with his two brothers in Ciudad Juárez /El Paso: Germán "Tin Taán" Valdez and his two brothers Ramón and Manuel "El Loco" all became famous entertainment celebrities after returning to Mexico City, but it's Tin Tán who is mostly associated with the Pachuco culture.

Only the first 5 minutes of the video below are relevant. This was the only documentary with subtitles which I could find [/center]

I think I saw a dubbed version of this one back when we lived in Colorado. I've been watching Tin Tan  movies for a long time. Couldn't always figure out exactly what was being said (I only learned a very thin spread of Spanish for talking to the parents of Hispanic students in the late 1990s, and onlyhad a smattering of "street spanish" before that, but he (Tin Tan) and the writers and other actors were talented enough for the language to not be absolutely necessary for the humor and plot to shine through.

He was a fabulous  character . Don't know what they are saying. The great acting though helps you guess.  I was waiting for Lucille Ball to come bumbling in.

It's a bit silly, but how about a Swedish electric jug band?

Von Corax, I couldn't see any electric jugs in that video. Indeed, I saw no kettles of any sort, nor any tea drinking. Are you sure about your description of the group?

The word pagan came from paganus , who mean peasant . Its was a way to significate than christianism was the religion of the elite and paganism the one of the savage worker class.

''Trickster shows us how we trick OURSELVES. Her rampant curiosity backfires, but, then, something NEW is discovered (though usually not what She expected)! This is where creativity comes from—experiment, do something different, maybe even something forbidden, and voila! A breakthrough occurs! Ha! Ha! We are released! The world is created anew! Do something backwards, break your own traditions, the barrier breaks; destroy the world as you know it, let the new in.''

I can't provide a video but last night a local tv channel had League of Extraordinary Gentlemen showing, so I watched that. It is interesting the similarities it has with other stories involving characters like Prof M.
