SAICOS, LOS - ¡Demolición!
Sello: Munster records
Los Saicos created a raw, wild and visceral sound, the southern hemisphere equivalent of the garage that came from the United States, and their anthem "Demolition" is one of the most delusional 60s punk songs of all time.
Sold out in single format for over a decade, here it is again!
The archeology of rock'n roll is not too different from any other form of excavation. Significant findings require rethinking previous certainties.
Here you can hear direct links to both The Stooges and The Cramps as well as many other fascinating bands. The latter having caused several generations to delve into the bowels of music and other previously (mostly) unknown forms of culture that have since become a daily part of the conventional musical fabric.
When Erwin Flores, leader of Los Saicos, was asked if at the time they were aware of the groups that were coming out in England and the United States, this is what he replied: “We knew the Beatles, they were our idols. We first heard the Rolling Stones after recording 'Demolition', as well as Bob Dylan and others. The primitive nature of our songs is something that came spontaneously out of my head. The band had no problem assimilating it and including it in the arrangements. We thought we were bad boys and that must have had an impact on our music. "
“Primitive to the point of being essential, Los Saicos is an important landmark. They did not go. Who could have imagined that there would be a band in Peru that would make The Sonics look like Simon and Garfunkel by their side? Very probably there is more music out there, somewhere, that could lead us to reconsider this statement, but until then enjoy this Saicotherapy course "
