Escombros were at the top of the underground scene in Chile together with Los Jaivas, Blops, Aguaturbia and Kissing Spell. They recorded in 1970 for the Arena label. Only one single and one LP were released. Escombros was comprised of members Walter Sitzmann, Lito Benito, Ricardo Mendeville, Jose Rosenblut and Michel Boisier. Walter's great compositions and vocals on all tracks create a unique and strong underground vibe with great fuzz guitars, drums, bass and organ that were heavier than in most bands from Chile. Their influences were Jimi Hendrix, Cream, Pink Floyd and Grand Funk Railroad. All English vocals. After this recording, Walter left Chile, so the band split up. Escombros is perhaps the best example of really cool underground music from Latin America with amazing vocals and extraordinary songs. This release has two bonus tracks.
