1 - PICAPIEDRA, LOS
- KABWLU - (LP)
First ever reissue of "Kabwlu", a very hard-to-find album released by Discos Fuentes in 1965.The mysterious Los Picapiedra (which translates as The Flintstones, inspired by the 1960s American cartoonshow), was a short-lived studio group with one albumto their name, "Kabwl", mixing folkloric and modernelements with calculated caveman humor.It is very musically diverse; not only are there the requisite genres that could be found on similar Colombian teenage-oriented groups records of the time, such as cumbia, gaita, rock, twist and pachanga, but there is also a smattering of surf, doo-wop, Latin jazz, guajira, ska, and calypso. But what makes the whole thing so special is the odd, off-kilter arrangements, spooky tunings, rudimentary clanging percussion, invented cave language, prominent twanging electric guitar and many zany sound effects.Several of Los Picapiedras songs became very popular in Colombia as well as Venezuela and especially in the rebajada (slowed down) version as played by the sonidero sound system DJs in Mexico, such as "La Hossa".Presented in its original artwork and pressed on 180g vinyl.Part of Vampisouls reissue series of classic Fuentes LPs.
