Brincos - World Devil Body / Mundo Demonio Carne
Brincos
World Devil Body / Mundo Demonio Carne
2LP | 1970 | EU | Reissue (Guerssen)
31,99 €*
Release:1970 / EU – Reissue
Genre:Organic Grooves, Rock / Indie
Double set including the Spanish version of the album plus, for the first time on vinyl, the alternate English version that Fernando Arbex (Brincos main man) considered to be the definitive one and that he couldn’t release at the time, including different tracklist / mixes than the released at the time English one, resulting in a fabulous psych album with a strong late ‘60s British feel. In 1969, Los Brincos, probably the most famous Spanish ‘60s pop band - often dubbed “the Spanish Beatles” – added a new member to their line-up: Colombian born Oscar Lasprilla, an accomplished keyboard / guitar player who had previously been part of pioneering Colombian psych bands Time Machine and the Speakers. Influenced by psychedelia, prog-rock and underground sounds, Los Brincos (now simply named ‘Brincos’), led by drummer / main songwriter Fernando Arbex, decided that their new album would be a conceptual work - something never seen in Spain until then - similar to what other international bands like Beatles, Who, Moody Blues or Pretty Things were doing. The concept behind the album was supposedly to be based on the three enemies of the soul: the world, the flesh and the devil, hence the final title: “World Devil Body”. This ambitious work was recorded by the new Brincos line-up - with famous Spanish musician Augusto Algueró as arranger - at the same place where King Crimson recorded their legendary debut, Wessex Studios in London, using the same sound engineer, Robin Thompson. The recording sessions were intensive and highly productive, with the band giving plenty of room to improvisation. Some songs were sung in Spanish, some in English, being the central piece an outstanding 12 minute long conceptual psych suite, sung in English and titled “Mundo Demonio y Carne” (“World Devil & Body”), comprised of four parts and written by Fernando Arbex and Oscar Lasprilla. There was nothing similar in Spain at that time and this track stands today as one of the earliest, if not the first, progressive pieces ever recorded by a Spanish band. Regarding the other tracks, we find many surprises: a long eastern sounding instrumental (“Kama-Sutra”); the eerie “Esa Mujer”, with a hair-rising orchestral arrangement by Algueró, featuring members of the London Symphony Orchestra; British influenced psych-pop “Jenny La Genio”, “Promises and Dreams” or “Butterfly” (which featured vocals sung through a megaphone!); hard-psych with plenty of guitar and Hammond (“Emancipation”, “Misery & Pain”)… The album was originally intended to be housed in a gatefold cover with artwork by hyperrealist painter Claudio Bravo, showing the five members of the band naked from their waists up. It was instantly rejected by the label. Also, the heads of the label showed little interest in this project, as they didn’t understand it at all, putting many objections to the proposed tracklist / release ideas. In the end, the release received zero promotion. Finally, the album, housed in a new cover by another painter depicting a bizarre viscous brain, was released in 1970 in two different versions: one in Spanish (Mundo Demonio Carne) and another in English (World Devil Body). They featured different tracklists / songs but both versions included the English sung “World Devil Body” suite. Fernando Arbex had the US market in mind for the English version but in the end that version was released only in Spain, Germany and, oddly enough, Japan. The album was received with mixing reviews… it was too ‘progressive’ for most of the Brincos fans and the few progressive music fans in Spain didn’t even bother to listen to it, as they still thought of Brincos as a pop band. Soon after, the band, tired and exhausted, disbanded after giving an amazing concert at a famous progressive music festival in Barcelona, sharing stage with new Spanish underground bands like Máquina! and Smash. During the years, both the Spanish/English versions of the album have been reissued many times. Then, in 1997, Fernando Arbex released (only on CD) what he understood was the definitive English version, featuring the nude Claudio Bravo cover for the first time and a new, different tracklist that, according to him, was the one he originally intended to release in 1970 but couldn’t do it due to frictions with the record company. The result is an English sung album with a strong late ‘60s British psychedelic flavour, including one of the best tracks Brincos ever recorded, “If I Were You” (which inexplicably was not included in the original release at the time) and a different mix of the “World Devil Body” suite. To coincide with the 50th Anniversary of World Devil Body / Mundo Demonio Carne, we’re proud to present a deluxe double vinyl LP reissue featuring, for the first time on vinyl, the nude gatefold cover design and the alternate English version, as Fernando Arbex originally intended. Disc 2 features the Spanish version as originally released in 1970.

LP | 1975 | EU | Reissue (Guerssen)

Release:1975 / EU – Reissue
Genre:Organic Grooves, Rock / Indie
A stunning blend of psychedelia, hard-rock and prog-folk courtesy of MIGUEL ABUELO, the legendary Argentinean rock pioneer. Recorded and released only in France in 1975, featuring some top Argentinean musicians such as killer guitar player DANIEL SBARRA.
Original artwork in gatefold sleeve, master tape sound and insert with lyrics, rare photos and liner notes by Daniel Sbarra.
Miguel Ángel Peralta aka Miguel Abuelo was a musician, poet and singer from Buenos Aires, Argentine. During the Sixties, he was the leader of early psychedelic band Los Abuelos de la Nada, who released a highly sought-after 45 in 1968.
In the early 70s, Miguel, a free spirit, left Argentina for Europe and he ended up busking in Paris. There, he formed a band called NADA featuring guitar player Daniel Sbarra and other expat Argentinean musicians.
Supported by their producer, Moshé Naïm, who was fascinated with Miguel’s personality and voice, they registered in France their only album, recorded circa 1973 but actually released in 1975 on Moshé’s own label, just when the band had decided to part ways.
Housed in a beautiful gatefold cover depicting Miguel in full hippie-fashion along with his little child Gato Azul, “Miguel Abuelo & Nada” is simply one of the best Argentinean rock albums ever recorded. Cleary influenced by bands like Deep Purple, Led Zepp, Jethro Tull and the like, Miguel and Daniel managed to create a very unique sound, powerful yet delicate, highlighted by Miguel's hearfelt vocals (sometimes treated as just another instrument), outstanding guitar playing by Daniel (listen to him doing one of the early known examples of proto-metal tapping on "Tirando piedras al río”), well crafted songs and deep, poetic lyrics.
The album was recorded at a state-of-the-art studio located in the countryside and was carefully produced: electric & acoustic guitars, bass, drums, flute, keyboards (including Moog), cello, violin...
Sadly, the release date kept getting delayed, the band had to go on tour without the album in the street and when it was finally released, Miguel and Daniel had decided to take separate ways. During the 80s, Miguel obtained mainstream success in Argentine until his death in 1988.
"Miguel Abuelo & Nada" is now widely regarded worldwide as a legendary, cult album and we're thrilled to present a top-notch vinyl reissue.

Hailing from Florida, The Tropics were one of the finest 60s garage bands. Their memorable concerts are still remembered today by the lucky ones who saw them at the time. Between 1965 and 1969, they recorded some explosive and now legendary 45s which are prime examples of garage-rock, teen-beat, folk-rock and proto-psych sounds. Here you’ll find most of those 45 sides along with some rare, previously unreleased on vinyl tracks. Including the classic “As time’s gone” (covered by The Fuzztones) and many more.
Remastered sound in mono, insert with detailed liner notes by Jeremy Cargill (Ugly Things) and rare photos.
“In 1965 The Tropics were the biggest band in Florida…simple as that. I watched them in awe” Tom Petty
