LP version. Includes download code. Out-Sider present the first reissue of Jodi's Pops De Vanguardia, originally released in 1971 as a private pressing. Pops De Vanguardia contains tracks mostly written and recorded in 1969 (with some dating back to 1966) by brothers Joern and Dirk Wenger at their homemade "Jodi Experimental Studio" in Paraguay. Joern and Dirk, born in Paraguay but of German origin, started playing in beat/psychedelic band The Rabbits, who released a very rare EP in 1969. After the group split, Joern and Dirk traveled to Germany where they studied arts and received musical lessons from none other than Stockhausen. The two brothers built their own homemade studio and spent many hours recording songs and experimenting, creating their own sound effects (echo, reverb, etc). They called their music "spontaneous pop". Pops De Vanguardia was recorded at their own rudimentary studio with two tape recorders. Joern played guitar, organ and was the lead vocalist, while Dirk played drums and percussion. From ultra-catchy garage-pop to killer instrumental Farfisa numbers and proto-psychedelic sounds, Pops De Vanguardia is often considered the best lo-fi garage album to come from South America. Jodi could be seen as precursors of the indie-pop and lo-fi garage which would appear some decades later. An ultra-rare and obscure album from Paraguay - ahead of its time, raw and homemade sixties garage, jangly pop and basement psych sounds. Comes with insert with detailed liner notes in English/Spanish and rare photos. CD version includes five bonus tracks (dating from 1969-1970), including three fantastic previously unreleased tracks, one track from a rare private EP and the beat-fuzz-psych track "Buscándote" from The Rabbits 1969 EP, Lo Más Nuevo.
