Hailing from swingin' Mexico City, Las Antorchas' songs ran the gamut from straight up '60s beat, to garage rock, to far out psychedelia, and any fans of those genres will find much to like here! The perfect acid-punk of "Dime," with its huge, echoey fuzz and whiny combo organ is a particular stand-out. Though the group's references were clearly Anglo-American, the majority of the tunes are performed in Spanish. This album compiles their sole EP as well as a slew of excellent singles from 1966-1968, which include some covers of songs by The Yardbirds, The Turtles, and The Beatles. Titles include "Opus 14 Interior 12," "Tú Me Enseñaste," "Dime," "Shake," "Confesión," "El Soldado," "Sabia," "No Lo Hagas," "Anoche Fue," "Canta Conmigo," and "Substitute."
