Artist: ANTORCHA
Title: s/t
Format: CD
Label: Vam
Country: Mexico
Price: $16.00
“A terrific early 70s Mexican psych-rock album from Antorcha which never saw release in its day. Previously known as Las Antorchas, under that moniker the group played beat and garage rock whereas this album showcases their transformation into a sonically rich and often heavy psych-rock band. Its a guitar-driven record sung in Spanish with lots of fuzz, wah, and some electric 12-string. The album also features some great psychedelic organ sounds and a Latin-flavored beat is occasionally thrown into the mix for good measure. The lyrics sometimes feature anarchist themes among other more typical psychedelic subjects (see: "Grass"). Great stuff and its particularly interesting hearing this back to back with their work as Las Antorchas. Check it out!” - Vam.

Artist: ANTORCHA
Title: s/t
Format: LP
Label: VAM
Country: Mexico
Price: $18.00
"Official limited edition vinyl from the original masters, featuring incredible late 60s/early 70’s anarchistic acid/psych rock tracks with fuzz, organs and all around great vibe. After the split of Las Antorchas, Victor Motta Aviles and band mate Omar Cortes Gaviño teamed up with Victors brother Guillermo and continued as Antorcha. Along with Náhuatl and Toncho Pilatos, Antorcha were one of the few groups in Mexico that managed to break the influences of foreign bands—and government oppression—and find their own (demented) sound. In fact, Antorcha set out to cerate an anarchist awareness among young people in the era; they understood anarchy as “respect to youth, the right to free-thinking, and breaking political and religious taboos.” And the music—acid psychedelic rock, with intelligent use of fuzz guitar and a strong rhythm section. Greats stuff from start to finish—all originals—that we can easily rate as some of the best psych rock ever made in Mexico! This LP has all of the band’s EP and single tracks, plus one from their only album, which came out at the end of their career. Housed in nice gatefold cover, with liner notes, pictures, discography and poster insert." - VAM.
