Song of the Day
Today’s song of the day is great latin garage punk from the mid-60s. Los Salvajes (the Savages) were from Barcelona, Spain and cut this track in 1966. Los Salvajes – Es la Edad (It’s The Age) is a beat band moving to punk – there’s harmony from the lead singer, but a great fuzzed out guitar solo, and the obligatory snarling scream. It can be found on the great latin garage comp Los Nuggetz. Added bonus – the video has quite the collection of 60s record covers of Spanish Ye-Ye groups.
Eat your heart out – I bought the original ep on a trip to Barcelona. Here’s a picture of the cover.
