''BACK TO PERU Vol.II''
(PERU, 2010) @
Vampisoul es un prestigioso sello discográfico de culto, creado y dirigido por Iñigo Pastor, que también es Director del famoso sello discográfico español Munster Records.
Cada disco que saca Vampisoul es siempre muy bien recibido por un público muy especial, que no es el tradicional acostumbrado a los artistas descartables. Los que saben de música dicen que el catálogo de este sello es impecable.
Pues bien ¿saben con qué material se lanzó Vampisoul a ese mercado tan especial? adivinen. Pues nada menos que con Back To Perú, recopilatorio del rock peruano de los años sesenta y setenta. Desde ese año, el 2003, grupos como Los Saicos, Los Termits, Los Yorks, Los Shains, Los 007, Los Holys, El Polen, etc. etc. empezaron a ser conocidos y apreciados fuera de nuestro país.
Ahora Vampisoul nos sorprende con otra maravilla, la segunda parte de Back to Perú. Back To Perú Vol.2.
"The best of this stuff is as unhinged as any US psychedelic gem: Tormenta en el Mar de la Tranquilidad by Los Jaguar's is a berserk cross between Link Wray and the 13th Floor Elevators. You'll be pleasurably surprised."
"The second trawl through the Peruvian underground '60s/'70s scene unearths another choice mix of groovy freakbeat and Santana-inspired vibes, especially Pax's Sittin' On My Head."
THE GUARDIAN (UK), MOJO (UK)
"This is an exhilarating selection of Peruvian rock groups in the golden era between 1964 and 74, absorbing surf, beat and other 60s subgenres, singing in innovative Spanish lyrics, while throwing a delirious experimentalism into the mix.- A must for all rock historians, or anyone curious to hear some unusual sounds."
"If you were enlightened and fortunate enough to have picked up the first volume of this collection of Peruvian underground sweetmeats from 1964-1974, you'll know the kind of unfettered â€“ often unhinged â€“ delights to expect from Volume II. " "This compilation mines pure gold. 5 stars".
SONGLINES (UK), RECORD COLLECTOR (UK)
"I'd have killed for a few tracks like Los Gatos Negros' hyper-charged 'Hey Hey Bunny' and Chus Martinez's crowd-pleasing, Booker T-style instrumental 'Soul 2' to go along with the chalk-dust and casual suits in my Northern Soul dancing days."
"Vampi Soul return with an extremely well documented and generously timed second
Volume two of this collection of the rarest grooves from Peru, including garage stompers, psych-pop, raunchy funk, Latin rock and anything in between.
The journey continues. Treasures keep turning up and surprises don't stop. The shards of the tremendous musical explosion that took place in Peru between 1965 and 1975 are still scattered, and those who are lucky to find them remain hypnotised by their charm forever.
During that magical decade Peruvian rock bands fed from all possible influences. The original surf, rock and beat sounds were joined by psychedelic experimentation and the cult of the acid. Some bands went even further and explored the field of music fusion as well as the most remote confines of their mind. And most of it is here! We welcome you, then, to a new overview of a scene whose diversity mirrors a society based on a powerful mix of races and cultures.
One of the great sources of inspiration was the rock, psychedelic pop and soul music that came from the United States and England. The songs by artists like The Jimi Hendrix Experience, Iron Butterfly, The Beatles or Mitch Ryder & The Detroit Wheels had such a great impact that they ended up merging with traditional Tropical rhythms, giving birth to new and surprising music styles such as "psychedelic guajira".
Some bands, like Los Holy's, Los Comandos, Los Jaguars or Los Siderals, chose to turn up the reverb on their amps and do without lyrics for their fantastic surf instrumentals, which sometimes incorporated arrangements in the style of Joe Meek.
Other groups went for a rougher approach. Los Saicos, Los Shain's or Los Drag's represent the wildest type of teenage abandon with their beat rhythms and garage energy. Hallucinogenic plants and the consumption of other illegal substances brought about total experimentation to Peruvian music, both in terms of composition and arrangements. Songs such as the bluesy 'Efectos' by Los Teddy's and 'Cuarto oscuro' by Los Zheros reflect this new psychedelic scene.
After the lysergic effects came hard and acid rock, full of heavy riffs and plenty of fuzz and wah-wah pedals, surprisingly adopted and practiced by bands like Pax, Telegraph Ave and Traffic Sound.
Traditional folklore also suffered the effects of the foreign rock invasion. Native styles such as cumbia incorporated elements from rock, which resulted in curious tracks such as 'Onstá la yerbita' by Los Destellos, featured here.
Sit down, relax and enjoy this journey "Back To Peru"!
