"Escombros, were at the top of the underground scene in Chile together with Los Jaivas, Blops, Aguaturbia and Kissing Spell. Recorded in 1970 for the Arena label. Only one single and one LP was released. Escombros are: 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 are much heavier than in most bands from Chile. Their influences are Jimmy Hendrix, Cream, Pink Floyd and Grand Funk Railroad. All English vocals. After this recording Walter left Chile, so the band split up. For us Escombros is perhaps the best example for really cool underground music from Latin America with amazing vocals and extraordinary songs. This release has two bonus tracks from the rare single." 500 numbered/heavy sleeve/180 gram pressing/insert.
