2009 release. Munster Records presents a compilation of the wildest moments of the best '60s garage-pop band from Colombia. In 1966, a certain go-go fever took over Medellín. The name of the virus: Los Yetis. Los Yetis represent a very special case within the '60s rock scene in Colombia: teenage pop idols associated with Nadaism (a Colombian intellectual movement from the late '50s), they were the only commercially-successful band based outside the capital city, Bogota, and have managed to remain in the musical mind of the nation. The city, one of the most conservative in Colombia, started to feel the shakes in its foundations as thousands of teenagers danced to the new sound, willing to distance themselves from the tango and bolero favored by their parents. To achieve this, what better than the go-go spirit embodied by a fury and abominable snowman? Their true entrance to the music industry came in February 1966 through the record label Discos Fuentes, with the support of a promotion strategy unheard-of in Colombia until then. They would become the new idols of thousands of teenagers infected by the go-go craze that The Beatles had originated a few years earlier. Los Yetis combined covers of international hits with their own songs containing beat, surf and garage rhythms. Remastered from the original master tapes. Housed in a CD digipack with a 20-page booklet including previously-unseen band photos and extensive notes.
