Outrageous Peruvian Fuzztones, Vol. 2: Grupo Trebol

Another hole in the wall find, this time with some wooly mammoth fuzz from Cusco, the "bellybutton of the world," circa 1973. As is often the case with psych rock albums from that era, this one is not necessarily killer all the way through, but... Just take a listen below to the flip side opener, "Caballo," which sounds like an army of drunk Santanas stumble-charging down from the Andes. And then there's the track that kicks off the album, "Algún Día Alcanzaremos," about which I would go so far as to say that it's the closest that Latin America ever got to Blue Cheer. Out-of-tune dual guitar solos never go out of fashion around here.
