Our song “Satan” used in episode of One Lungers

Our song “Satan” from our self titled LP has been used in an episode of One Lungers: Stories of Vintage Snowmobiling in Minnesota. The series documents snowmobilers who customize their sleds much like rat rodders did with their hot rods. Interesting and definitely fitting subject matter as Old Man Winter rears his ugly head.

That release was more than 4 years ago and thereafter CORTEZ vanished from the scene. Or I just lost sight of them. Such as pity, because I liked their bluesy, groove-laden hard rock and […]
