The Survival - La Onda De The Survival (1971 mexican, awesome acid/garage/psychedelic blues-rock - vinyl rip) Flac
THANKS TO ORIGINAL UPLOADER: "UGO"
Master-tape reissue of this super rare Mexican heavy psych album from 1971, filled with wah-wah guitar, ripping fuzz and primitive effects. Rated 5 stars In Hans Pokora's book "3001 Record Collector Dreams".
Bluesy acid psych with a typical Mexican '60's sound, The Survival specialized in acid blues rock with a sound that ranges from a loose, wigged out psyche blues approach to tighter and faster groove – still informed by electric blues, but tricked out with fuzz and wah wah. A nice mix of raw production and expansive inspiration!
They formed in the 1960's; because they went through so many lineup changes, they eventually took the group name "Survival"! With Swiss born Luscher Andrés Fontana on drums and vocals; Joaquin Ramos on lead guitar; Luis Ramirez on bass; and Oscar Vazquez on rhythm guitar, Survival released their first and only album in 1971.
It was influenced by West Coast psych rock and the British Blues—sort of a combination of Country Joe and the Fish, Quicksilver Messenger Service and Ten Years After. They sing in heavily accented English, and it's a worthwhile discovery. Includes "Old People", "The World Is A Bomb", "What The World Need Is Union", "Electric Chair", "Canabis Lady", "Useless Warefare" and more.The group soon split, and the only evidence of their existence of this masterpiece of Mexican psychdelia.
