The New Chilean Psychedelic Underground

Believe it or not all these bands are from Santiago- had no idea Spacemen 3 were so loved there

The Psychedelic Schafferson Jetplane- S/T lp on pastabase Permanent Records in Chicago have copies. Chilled out stoned jamming very much in a Spacemen 3/BJM Satanic Majesties 2nd Request.

Brossroad by WATCH OUT!

Watch Out!- Wow these Jams take in all your favourites like a cross between Spacemen 3/Velvets and Can (thinking Butterfly with that organ) fantastic stuff.

IV, III, II, I (fragmento) by Föllakzoid

Follakzoid claim to be Chile's only Krautrock band would have no idea if thats true but who cares when its this good.

cindys jam by LA BANDA'S

La Banda are from what i can gather the catalyst for a lot of these bands. Also check out La Hell Gang,Acid Call,Holy Drug Couple....
Think i need a holiday to Santiago

The Notorious Hi Fi Killers Old School Studios 15th March 2008

What more could you ask for,its fair to say the band name better describes the music than i could. This is a real head pounding live radio session love it.Think a few of these cuts were on the New Spirituals lp they released.Still have not got to see these boys live which rankles as they have played Leeds quite a few times and they sound fucking great
To the everlasting YEAH...Here
