Record Hunter: Demolición - Los Saicos (DisPerú, Lima, Peru, 1964)

I'm sure these guys back in '64 never imagined that they'd become known across the entire world. Or that someone would make a documentary about them. But their current notoriety is well deserved. This is one of six singles they released in the mid-1960s, all of which comprised wholly original songs written by band members Erwin Flores and Rolando Carpio. There's not much I can say about them that you can't hear in the grooves of this record. Or read in this article in The Guardian.
