a re-imagining of alejandro jodorowsky's EL TOPO (2009)

A Band. A Brunch. A Movie. An Improvisational Musical Experience. The Mango Wranglers are an improvisational potty mouth jam-n-groove rock and roll band, who envisioned a “re-imagining” of the film “El Topo” by Alejandro Jodorowsky who said “If you are great, El Topo is a great picture. If you are limited, El Topo is limited”. Sunday February 22, 2009: Gathered together for a brunch at Studio Fifty Three Four, some of us had never seen the film before (let alone even heard of it), and others had previously witnessed the beauty. Armed with instruments, noise makers, and the will to musically improvise what would be seen on screen, no one in the room could have foreseen what was about to happen. It actually feels that by listening to these 30 songs (24 El Topo songs and some bonus tracks! Included at the end of discs one and two are beginning ‘pre-film’ outtakes; at the end of disc three, there are three songs from “The Mango Wranglers 2/14/09 Limited Attended Anti-V-D Party”, as well as the end of the outtakes), that you are in the room with us. Please enjoy with caution as some language and musical imagery might not be appropriate for everyone, and do not chastise those involved as the words and views do not reflect all in attendance. Thanks and keep on rockin’! The Mango Wranglers RPM Challenge 2009 El Topo The gunfighter El Topo ("The Mole") and his young son ride through a desert to a village, whose inhabitants have been massacred. Bandits are nearby, torturing and killing the survivors. El Topo rescues a woman (Mara), who leads him on a mission to find and defeat the four master gunmen of the desert. Leaving his son with a group of monks, El Topo and Mara complete the mission, accompanied by a mysterious woman in black. The women leave El Topo wounded in the desert, where he is found by a clan of deformed people who take him to the remote cavern where they live. Awakening years later, he goes with a dwarf woman to a nearby town, promising to dig a tunnel through which the cave-dwellers can escape. They find the town run by a vicious sheriff and home to a bizarre religious cult. El Topo's son, now a man, is a monk in the town. The completion of the tunnel leads El Topo, the townspeople, and the cave-dwellers to a bloody and tragic end.
