Perrosky is a Chilean band formed by the brothers Alejandro and Álvaro Gómez, originally from the city of Copiapó, Chile. Their influences include rock and roll, folk and blues. The name “Perrosky” came from the childhood nickname of Alejandro, who was originally a solo performer before forming a duo with brother Álvaro. Originally from Copiapó, Alejandro moved to Santiago to study music, but left to form the garage rock band Guiso with his brother Álvaro, Álvaro Guerra, and – later – Bernardita Martínez. In 2001, initially with a small repertoire of songs, Alejandro recorded his first acoustic low fidelity cassette called Añejo (“aged”) and made his live debut in a bar in the neighborhood of Ñuñoa, Santiago. After this gig, Alejandro recruited his brother Álvaro to join him on drums, and the Perrosky style changed to become more electric.[2] Although still playing in their parallel project Guiso, the Perrosky duo also began performing gigs in Santiago and other cities in Chile. In 2004, Perrosky released a six track album called Otra Vez (“Again”), which they later combined with tracks from Añejo to form their first full-length album, El Ritmo y la Calle (“Rhythm and the Street”), released in 2007.[3] They […]

TOMATES ROCKY

By chance… that’s how Tomates Rocky was born. In 2007, two of the band members:  frontman, Nicolas Bowen (aka Proliante), and drummer, Anibal Robles (aka Senor Rupe), were asked to play a jam session at a friend’s birthday party. Using only a classic Casio home keyboard and a simple drum, the stage was set to seriously begin making music. For both of them, it was like finding water in the middle of a desert, which created more thirst to make new and original music – different from anything that had come before it – and the seeds of the tomatoes began to germinate. Catchy melodies, a mixture of elements familiar to anyone who grew up in the 80’s… like sounds taken from Atari and Nintendo, music from Spanish TV, such as “Martes 13” and “Sabado Gigante” and a small dose of Orlando Urbina, who played keyboards on weekend evenings in the supermarket in downtown Santiago, Chile, in the 90’s, when Santiago still had a small town feel. From all of these influences came the idea of “Supermarket Psychedelia,” a term that denotes fresh ideas, crisp rhythms and savory sounds. Tomates Rocky cooks up this produce with a dash of humor, […]

Chicos de Nazca

  CHICOS DE NAZCA are yet another psychedelic product Santiago’s underground movement, formed in 2010 by guitarist and vocalist Francisco Cabala to run alongside his full time band La Hell Gang. As part of Chile’s prolific BYM Records collective, Chicos De Nazca benefit from a fluid line-up of musicians who appear across the band’s different albums: Igancio Rodriguez (The Holydrug Couple), Juan Pablo Rodriguez (Föllakzoid), Martin Avendaño and Carlos Cabala have all been part of the Chicos clan at various points. The ban appear at the festival as part of the Sacred Bones v BYM collaboration. Chicos De Nazca have released three official albums (on BYM Records and Hozac Records) and two unofficial ones, utilising tape recording, analog effects and endless layers of guitars to build their atmospherics sounds. The group’s characteristic gentle and psychedelic repertoire – in which the rhythm and keyboards are essential to keep the songs afloat – owes a bedt to the generation of rock bands that sprung from the post-acid house fever of 1988 in Chicago and England. A soundtrack for a trip to a place of dreams. Record Label: BYM Records Website chicosdenazca.bandcamp.com
