HOT OFF THE PRESS, IT'S THE LONG AWAITED NEW RELEASE FROM GO APE RECORDS: LOS WAKAMONOS FOUR FANCY ELEKI HITS. THIS TREBBLE, FUZZ AND REVERB SATURATED 4 SONG 7" EP WILL MAKE YOR SPEAKERS SQUEAL LIKE A PIG. IT'S ABSOLUTELY PRIMITIVE!
Los Wakamonos "4 Fancy Eleki Hits" is the newest release from Brooklyn's favorite DIY label, Go Ape Records. Los Wakamonos (roughly translated - The Young Men) is a demented "eleki" duo hailing from Okayama, Japan. Making their international vinyl debut, the emperors of eleki's rough & ready brand of garage & surf instrumentals will make your speakers squeal like a pig. I don't know if they surf on Monster Island, but if they do, I'd bet dollars to donuts Los Wakamonos is blasting out of every transistor radio along that beach. If you like treble squelching, fuzzed-out, reverb drenched guitar coupled with primitive, bombastic drums, check out the two-headed Beast from the East, Los Wakamonos. This is a very ltd edition 4 song EP mastered by the garage master himself, Tim Warren of Crypt Records. It is a fuzz & reverb saturated head-first foray into the frothy depths of the primitive. Los Wakamonos are truly the contemporary emperors of eleki.
