The Day After The Sabbath 43: Transfusión de Luz [Latin rock pt.1]

pass:  tdats
TDATS 43 is a collection of Latin American bands. [Editor's note: there have now been five Latin rock volumes: 118 (Chicano Rock) 84 (Brazil), 89 (Mexico), 104 (Peru) and 43 (general South America)] One name stands out here, with contributions to the three tracks from Aeroblus, Pappo and Miguel Abuelo. Norberto Napolitano, nick-named 'Pappo', started playing guitar at the age of ten, and developed a distinctively heavy, aggressive and fuzz-laden style. He became very active in Argentine rock from its beginning and made his name as guitarist of Los Gatos, the first rock band to enter the mainstream charts in Argentina. He continued in music right up until his untimely death in a 2005 motorcycle accident.  

Pax, the latin word for Peace, were from Peru, a country that produced a lot of good bands. The others on this comp being Longhonia and Tarkus. Along with Tarkus they played a very heavy proto-metallic style, while Laghonia created some great psych.  

Argentina is the most recurrent country here, and Plus were a great Argentine band that produced 3 albums beginning in the late 70's, they had a well-rounded professional sound from the start and the track here has an emotive doomy atmosphere, something which is shared with fellow countrymen Color Humano. There is little information on the few singles produced by 'Rosario', the artist is reportedly from Mexico and the track here is a frantic slice of psych with some great strangulated fuzz guitar. Piel De Pueblo's track offers a cool string-lead motif and their eccentric single album 'Rock de las heridas' is an entertaining listen. Opus Alfa and Climax are two bands from the early 70's which have a great sound from the time that Psych was turning to hard rock and finally I mention El Reloj and Módulo 1000, two bands who are a treat for any heavy prog fans out there.

The Day After The Sabbath 22

Download: [mf] or [mg]
Volume 22 is an eclectic mix from all over the board, three slabs of 60s heavy psych from Peacepipe, Waters and Mass Temper mix in with the krautrock of Kravetz and Electric Sandwitch. Luv Machine are likely the only Barbados band you'll see on this blog. The heavy prog of Omega remains Hangary's biggest rock export so far and Suck represent South Africa's shot at Sabbath heaviness. Cool Feet have two joined tracks here, the album from which is a rare pressing that combines an intriguing mix of hard rock with NWOBHM hints. Another classic cover appears on track 13 from a UK alt/sludge band, who employ fuzz of evil magnitude to cover Cream's standard, Sunshine Of Your Love.

01. Luv Machine - Witches Wand (1971)
02. Peacepipe - The Sun Won't Shine Forever (1968)
03. Piel De Pueblo - Jugando A Las Palabras (1974)
04. Elonkorjuu - Future (1972)
05. Suck - The Whip (1971)
06. Waters - Mother Samwell (1969)
07. Electric Sandwich - China (single version) (1973)
08. Hallelujah - Mini Funk (1971)
09. Cool Feet - Hello Lucy / Burning Desire (1976)
10. Omega - You Don't Know (1974)
11. Mass Temper - Gravedigger (1968)
12. Affinity - Three Sisters (1970)
13. Fudge Tunnel - Sunshine Of Your Love (Cream cover) (1991)
14. Kravetz - Routes (1972)
