Los Peyotes Garaje o Muerte

Added 29/1/2011

Dirty Water Records,sixties,Garaje,punk,sudamericano,Garaje o muerte,los peyotes,

Dear Garage Punk music lovers,

Does the name Los Peyotes ring any bell to your ears ? No, really ?
Too bad, but never mind, you will be able to catch up right now, lucky you :
Los Peyotes are a quintett of Argentinian & Peruvian boys in which
- Oscar Hechomierda plays Bass
- Pablo Bam Bam plays the Bam Bam thing
- David Peyote : Voz y maracas
- Rolando Bruno plays FuzZz Guitars
- Jr Lemons plays the Farfisa organ

Los Peyotes made their official debut in 2005 with "Cavernicola", on which they recorded songs by some of the most important bands of Argentina and Uruguayan rock of the 6ts.
Their influences include Los Walkers, Los Shakers, Los Mockers, Los Gatos Salvajes and Los Saicos (I will need to find an Argentinian on-line record dealer to learn more about these...).
The music Los Peyotes produce sometimes feels like its being spat out from a machine-gun during some southamerican war against the gringos 2 centuries ago !
Los Peyotes moslty sing in Spanish but they also sing in English.
On their latest release "Garaje o Muerte", you will find covers among which
The Sparkles' No Friend of Mine (Vos No Sos Mi Amigo) or
? & the Mysterians' 96 Tears (96 Lagrimas).
Out of Garaje o Muerte, Bdaaa!!! (pronounce Bdaaa!!!), their 2nd UK single, was following El Umo Te Hace Mal, which was taken from their 1rst LP in Europe : "Introducing..."
This second album from Dirty Water Records was recorded by Jorge Explosion @ Circo Perrotti in Gijon, Spain. The band toured a few European countries soon after.

Los Peyotes is a must-have in any good garaje record collection.
You could start by listenig to their music here :
And then go there to buy it :

The Vanjas

Added 22/1/2011

swedish roll,swedish rock,vanja lo venus,THE VANJAS,stockholm,

Dear Music Explorers,

Sweden's Rock book was missing a page.
I found it in a cave nearby. Strangely, it is signed Flint... ;o)
Let's be 'serious' :

The Vanjas is a 4 piece band from Stockhlom, composed of :
Vanja Lo Venus - Singer
Mr Magnatone - Guitar
Bon Ton Jeanneau - Bass
Mr Hank - Drums

The Vanjas play a garage like Rythm & Blues with some drops of Soul that makes a very enjoyable & catchy sound.
From the very little I could find about the band on the internet, they played in England or Spain for instance, not talking of the obvious Nordics.
Unfortunately, they have not invaded France yet.
Mrs Vanja Lo Venus advised she would love to in a recent mail and that Paris might possibly be one of their future targets. Let's hope so !
Yet no physical material was released, though the band holds enough stuff (16 songs) to do so.
Maybe an EP &/or CD might see the red light in the coming year.
C'mon producers & record makers, you'd better urge before one of your wiser competitors makes the first move !
For the time being, you can go & discover their music on their Myspace page :
Have no fears, open your ears !

I will soon add some of The Vanjas videos in my Music-O-Rama, which I haven't done for ages.
@+/bis bald/bye (listening to The Vanjas - Cool Jerk)

PS 2 : Enlarge your music
