Los Nuggetz: Best Of Volume Uno - Various Artists on LP
Los Nuggetz: Best Of Volume Uno is a collection of hyperkinetic fuzz, punk, garage and psychedelic music from Mexico, Spain and Latin American countries. Vinyl junkies who dig that basic “four on the floor” raw power, one take, stripped down, go for broke hedonism are always looking under the surface, on the hunt - not just in record stores but on trips to Spanish speaking countries, Ebay and various outlets online.
When psychedelic music edged into the mainstream, bands like Los Apson, Los Saicos, Los Cheyenes, Los Salvajes, Los Yorks were now inspired and not just knocking off American or British songs. Most of the bands were only around for a short time. Los Saicos from Peru made music that predated the punk movement by a good 10 years. With other bands, you hear not just competent musicianship but an unabashed love for the music. Some of it is raw and some extremely melodic. The key was lack of production and basic instinct for melody, angst and attitude.
Los Nuggetz: Best Of Volume Uno tales a nice look at these bands from a historical and musical viewpoint. This isn't necessarily the definitive collection of this music, but more a portal to inspire fans to discover more from these talented artists. Here’s hoping you dig it. Viva la musica de garage y psychodelico conjuntos!
