Terry Reid - 68 - FrontHello my friends, today i bring you a real rock and roll loser, Terry Reid. Maybe you have already hear about him, maybe not. I don`t knows and I don`t care because I come here only for speak wherever I want. So today I bring you this guy who is contemporary to Jimmy Page and Ritchie Blackmoore.

And what about that, Miguel? Maybe you ask. And I answer you: Because Terry Reid was the musician to say “no” to Jimmy Page when he invited him to play in his new band: Led Zeppelin. The facts where that he was in a very good moment because have an important show with The Rolling Stones and Cream. So, why in the hell he will renounce to that for begin with a band, ah? So he declined.

That band become in Led Zeppelin.

Before that, Ritchie Blackmoore invited Reid to play in his band, Deep Purple. Terry Reid refused again. So he stay out of this two incredible band, but, however, he has builder a career. Good for him. Here I let you his first record, a real good piece of rock and roll. Terry Reid.

Pistola & Los Mugrientos – In black we trust (2011)

Posted in Argentina, Garage, Mendoza, Pistola & Los Mugrientos, Punk, Rock, R`n`R with tags , , , , , , , on 4 enero 2015 by wirtis

TapaPistola & Los Mugrientos fue una banda de la escena underground mendocina. No es esta una historia que destaque, no es esta una banda que descolle. Y por eso merece un lugar en este blog que rescata las historias mínimas, esas que emocionaron a pocos, solo a los actores y alguno que los quiso; no más.

La historia empieza a fines del siglo pasado, cuando un grupo de amigos decide formar una banda de rock. La cosa pinta más o menos fácil, a todos les gusta el rock. Escuchan las mismas bandas y consensuan en que es una forma de diversión excelente. Pronto notan que de los cinco, cinco tocan la guitarra. Plantean un quinteto de cuerdas. No parece muy rockero pero bueno, es lo que hay. No logran encontrar un sonido en tal formación. No entienden cómo construir sendas armonías sin el laborioso bajo o la rítmica batería. Así no se puede, dos tienen que cambiar la guitarra por la batería y el bajo, se dicen más pronto que tarde. Y dos, los más presurosos tal vez, adquieren una batería y un bajo. Al mes ya estaban covereando a Divididos, Los Piojos y La Renga. Tal vez lo crean infructuoso, pero tocar covers es la mejor manera de echar lazos para una sociedad musical. Es decir, tocar versiones permite conocer los modos en que otro toca y, de ese modo, construir el equilibrio armónico y químico tan fundamental para tocar.

Volviendo a lo que nos interesa, aclaro que antes de ser una banda de rock, siempre fue un grupo de amigos, de ahí que pronto surgió el problema medular que, no solo no lograrían resolver exitosamente, sino que los llevaría a la separación como banda: sobraban guitarristas pero no daba para echar a ninguno. Así de simple, así de complejo. ¿Y cómo es que sobraban guitarras si eran cinco nada más? Es decir, Wirtis, pueden dos tocar guitarra y uno cantar o tocar, más mejor, tres guitarras. Si lo importante es tener una base de bajo y batería que allane y aúne  las melodías de guitarra… Y es verdad, coincido con ustedes. Pero estos chicos no supieron (o no quisieron, yo no sé) lidiar con esto. O sí, pero no de un modo que los incluyera a todos y evitara las suspicacias. Fue así que empezaron a alternarse para tocar. De acuerdo a qué tema interpretaban, se alternaban la guitarra. Pero bueno, de seguro el que se quedaba sin guitarra cantaba; dirán ustedes. Y no, en esta banda no. El que pasaba la guitarra se quedaba afuera de la canción. Sin más.

ContratapaAsí las cosas no tardó en aparecer el mentado problema que acarrea la competitiva actividad, y lo digo de este modo porque fue lo que pasó: los guitarristas empezaron a competir entre sí. Luego no tardó en abandonar uno de ellos. Trajo paz, de algún modo, el cambio porque se pudo avanzar, al tener elementos fijos en la banda, hacia un nivel más: el de la composición. Sin embargo, no daba para dejar a uno de los vagos afuera, y así lo confirmó otro de los guitarristas, que, más temprano que tarde, abandonó la banda y les dijo a los tres restantes que eran unos putos, que se habían olvidado de la amistad.

Pistola & Los Mugrientos se convirtió, entonces, en un power trío. No duró mucho la aventura, apenas un par de años (tal vez tuvo razón el que abandonó). Con todo, fue esta formación la que grabó este demito de rock visceral y crudo que les comparto.

En cuanto al disco,  es muy recomendable si sos amigo de los sonidos trogloditas y descarnados del rock and roll vintage. Acá se los dejo, vean ustedes y opinen, qué condena merece esta banda, ya sea por haber abandonado, ya sea por haber grabado. Pistola & Los Mugrientos. Get it!

Hasil Adkins – Santa Claus boogie/ Blue Christmas

Posted in EEUU, Garage, Hasil Adkins, Raw, Rock, Rockabilly with tags , , , , , , , on 24 diciembre 2014 by wirtis

Portada AI am not in the mood of feel sad about this time of the year. I don`t feel glad either. It just sucks my dick. However, I find this beautiful simple of this great rock and roll looser how sound dirty and raw, I mind Hasil Adkins. I don`t know much about him. I just had listened some old recording and this simple today share with you.

There are two songs, one boogie and one blue. The sound is very dirty and raw, appropriated for this blog; but main thing is that both speaks about Christmas, so there are more appropriated for today. So this is my way to say fuck you Santa, fuck you everybody. Let gets stoned and runaway out.

I would love speak about the way market steal our life making us thing we need stuff. I would love to speak, too, about loneliness and how it so deep and blue this days in the year.  I think it would be great if I was spoken  about me and my pain.

But no, the words are stocked there, deep inside of my hearth. So I just have to go on, drink a little drop of poison, just one more, enough to not fail.

Here I let you Hasil Adkins, a great rock and roll looser. A friend of Wirtis.

Los Yetis con Jeans – Los cuates del ritmo (2014)

Posted in Garage, Los Yetis con Jeans, Mendoza, Punk, Surf with tags , , , , on 22 septiembre 2014 by wirtis

Mi nena está hiponeándola con uno grupo chicos autoproclamados “Zona sísmica”. No quiero me mal interpreten, nada de peyorativo tienen ni el verbo ni el sustantivo usado en la frase anterior, muy al contrario: Los pibes son unos capos ilustradores que se juntan a concretar proyectos editoriales  o talleres gráficos, entre otras travesuras artísticas.

10561718_753900171335400_5389741698374799345_nPor suerte, y como ejemplo de salubre vitalidad, también existen otros que hacen cosas. En este caso puntual que reseño, cito a los chicos de Bazofia que organizaron una feria de Fanzinnes.

El evento se llevó a cabo en Pájaros, librería independiente. Un reducto que apareció a fines del 2013 acá en la provincia y que se dedicá a promocionar y promover a los autores independientes de la provincia. (Aplaudo su iniciativa, elevo mi copa en honor a Diego Bustamante, el idealista propietario, porque, y no lo pueden negar, es todo una quijotada lo que este pibe hace)

Como en todo evento para que funcione es necesario tener algún número convocante o, mejor aún, interesante; los organizadores de la Feria invitaron a Los Yetis con Jeans a tocar.

Hacía un buen rato que no veía a estos muchachos en vivo. La verdad que quedé pasmado. Y en el mejor de los sentidos. La banda ha seguido transitando los caminos de ese surf western que practican, radicalizando más aun su concepto hasta constituir “su” estilo. Los Yetis con Jean tienen un sonido propio. Pletórico de reminiscencias al surf más prototípico pero referenciado en el contexto socio histórico que los gesta. Es decir, la banda practica un “género músical”, en todo lo amplio que el término implica pero la forma, los modos en que lo hacen es particular, propio de la idiosincrasia de los integrantes y de la situación socio histórica que los cobija. De este modo encontramos en esta, su última producción, un tema como “Una pena de Vairoletto” que es un western de rigor que tributa al legendario bandido muerto a escasos kilómetros de acá, en el distrito de Alvear. Claro que no se cierra ahí el álbum, tiene piezas excelentes como “Ruido del mundo”, “Balada del perro viejo” o “Ríos de nostalgia”, solo por nombrar las que más presente tengo.

12524_768248099900607_2913867972399534502_nMe parece interesante destacar lo del párrafo anterior porque considero que Los Yetis con Jean, por un lado hablan con toda una larga tradición de rockers que practicaron el género antes; pero, por el otro, también hablan con los coterráneos (Vairoletto, por ejemplo, es un personaje nuestro). En esta línea de pensamiento, también me interesa destacar que se conectan directamente con la otrora famosa y ahora legendaria banda Los 4 Planetas. Grupo de surf poderoso y potente que actuó en la Mendoza de los años sesenta (algo de ellos está publicado en Garagelatino.blogspot).

Bueno, Los Yetis con Jeans realmente fueron el número justo y necesario para terminar de hacer de esa muestra de Fanzines un lugar lleno de arte y creatividad. La banda tocando del otro lado de la vidriera, del lado de adentro de la librería Pájaros, nosotros afuera, en los stands de revistas y fanzines saltando y bailando sin parar. Y el público consumiendo y disfrutando al tope.  Como debe ser una feria de  rigor.

Fue esa noche que adquirí este disco que hoy les comparto. Acá se los dejo. Es el último material a la fecha, aunque, según me contaron los chicos de Los Yetis, van a sacar otro prontamente. Y la alegría y ansiedad que nos provoca tamaña noticia es indescriptible, aunque también sana y motivadora. Acá está, entonces, Los cuates del  ritmo. Y no se pierdan a estos pibes en vivo porque son impresionantes. Tampoco dejen de ir a comprar a Pájaros o asistir a los eventos de Zona sísmica.

Sumo – Raw & Live (2014)

Posted in 2014, Argentina, En vivo, Garage, Punk, Raw, Rock, Sumo with tags , , , , , , , , on 7 julio 2014 by wirtis

Front-1 copyHello my beloved friends. Here i come again. And I come with the very first anthology specially made for this blog. Because always I have done for another one, the famous and well know Garagelatino.blogspot.com.

However this time I decided publish something here. Not for give notoriously to this blog, no friends. The reason is that I need to speak and Sumo shows it like a way to make contact. So I took my old Sumo compilation – the one I made with the song rawest from the band – do it a front cover and bring here. Only for speak friends.

Because, from time to time, I think about you. I know life goes on, we both are in different places, in different moments. I accept reality. You know that.

But I can get out of my mind the “How it would have been” between you and me. Last day I saw you out there. You were laughing so happy that I feel eager to run to hug you. And realized I don`t dare to do it. Still dream with your voice but I know we are losing our “world” (for say it somehow) because we don’t share nothing. It`s sad.

Every time I see you I feel nervously because still i`m looking for your eyes, I still searching you. How I wish could hug you in my arms, how I wish could be me with you.

But it can`t be.

We are so far, so separated that we don`t know each other.

So, fuck off.

Life sucks everyday but not for that I will kill myself. Life took you far away from me and that’s it`s inevitable. Like the fact that someday, some morning or night perhaps we will find and we won`t recognize our self. So old or so different that our days seen a fiction.

Here let you this beautiful anthology. I know you like this band. And I know you never stop by that`s why I spoke freely. Here you have: SUMORaw & Live.

 

The Misfits – Project 1950 (2003)

Posted in Garage, Punk, Rock, The Misfits with tags , , , , , on 17 abril 2014 by wirtis

Misfits_Project_1950_FrontThe Misfits is a rock and roll legendary band. Everybody knows them. The most important records in their career were in Glen Danzig`s time. When he goes away the things weren’t the same.   However the band continues playing and punking. They sound good, they are real musicians, you know like those who practice all day and speak singing. But something is missing, something sound different. I suppose, maybe is Danzig missed, but I not so sure.

This record I bring today is in a “cover way” but the clever aspect is that are fifties’ cover. I like the topic, I have to said it but I find too much punk mood whiteout soul. Maybe is to roof my adjective, I know – and who you thing you are, Wirtis? Only a poor mama`s boy speaking from behind a desk, hiding your face, faking your identity –   but is the only  I know in English. Well, like I was saying this record didn`t like me at all.

Dreamlover was only song I enjoy. But not too much for convert “Project fifty” in one of my top list. Because I have a top list, have I ever told you, brothers? No? Well, know it.

 

 

Hablan por la Espalda – Macumba (2009)

Posted in 2009, Candombe, Garage, Hablan por la Espalda, Hard Rock, R&B, Rioplatenses, Rock, Uruguay with tags , , , , , on 27 marzo 2014 by wirtis

Hablan por la espaldaHello my brothers, here I’m again with more music, with more words and more pain. Yes because today I bring you one of this latin band that used to cry smiling. Have you hear someone of these groups, brother?? Maybe you do, if you like to looking in American continent, in south and middle part, far away from north American peace, far away from that shit. Ands close of this land where we learn to cry moving our bodies, smiling our pain.

It`s a fact that we people have to learn to crypt pain behind mask of smiling because we always have been submitted. Also quick rhythm configured genres like cumbia, guaracha y camdombe.  After came rock and roll and youngness rich music and everything began to be more crazy – I mind popularly way because art always have been crazy and tell you more, artist must be “crazy” people – and began to mix everything. Like youngness always does.

Well Hablan por la Espalda (Spoke from behind) is a perfect example of that mix: a punch of young kids rocking all over the place but playing their typical genre: camdombe. Yes sucker. Hablan por la Espalda plays camdombe but, in the same way of Chicha peruana; does with rock and roll instrumentation.

Good, a real good band is this. Have pass a long time since a brother from the web – like you or you – stop by and told me: Hey Wirtis, Bufón was a real good band but much better is this one! And send me this record.

I let the time goes, I spend a few years earing another stuff. Because i`m a human been, because was in other fly. But one day, one good day y remember this band and I was looking something powerful, so thought: maybe Miguel, give Hablan por la Espalda a chance and made it. Thanks god made it because is a great band with personality. They sound raw, they sound honestly and they sound latinos. So here I let you this beautifull disc for you: Hablan por la Espalda – Macumba.

The Cramps – Flamejob (1994)

Posted in 1994, Blues, EEUU, Garage, Psicobilly, Punk, R&B, Raw, Rock, Rockabilly, Surf, The Cramps with tags , , , , , , , , , on 27 enero 2014 by wirtis

Good night brothers. Today i bring you something classic, something you have to know if you are a really rock and roll fan. Yes, you sucker, today I bring you The Cramps ¿Have you listen this band, boy?

ImagenOk, I’ll tell you a little about The Cramps. The history began in 1972, in Sacramento (California) when Poison Ivy (Kristy Wallace) meets Lux Interior (Erick Purkhiser). They were two kids fascinated by obscure 50 noise rock and roll and free mind theory’s. So they found their selves in University, in “Art and shamanism” business.

Early they were playing and sharing music. Poison Ivy began to play guitar and Lux Interior to sing. From the beginning they were different to any other band, because they sound dirty and raw, always imitating old band sounds. In fact, brother, you can even imagine garage revival or psycobilly without The Cramps. So important is their function in rock and roll history. Of course, in underground history, but that`s why The Cramps are here and never is going be here shit like Tan Biónica ¿Right?

Well, is not my intention to make a long declaration of knowledge here, no brother. My intention is explain   to you what is what I’m sharing and what is it part in music. This record, Flamejob is the first (and I’m not pretty sure but I thing is the only too) album made for a multinational company: Warner. Yes, so high they arrive but, like always, their sound was so nasty, so god dam dirty that company fired them. So they send Warner to hell and made their own studio. There, they recorded a few disc more.

In 2009 Lux Interior passes away at the age of 62. The rest is history. So here I let you this one, a very, very good album, full of raw and dirty music. Enjoy Flamejob by The Cramps. And enjoy Andre Willians too.
