JUAN DE LA CRUZ - Shake Your Brains (1972 Philippines Heavy Fuzzy Psych Rock)

VENENO DAS FILIPINAS E AINDA POR CIMA UM POWER TRIO!!! HARD ROCK PSYCH DE ALTA QUALIDADE!!! GRANDE JUAN!! GREAT JUAN!! UMA CURIOSIDADE POR SER FILIPINO E QUE SURPREENDE PELA QUALIDADE DO SOM!!! ESSE ALBUM É UMA COMPILAÇÃO DE SEUS DISCOS E É EXTREMAMENTE RARO E MUITO LEGAL!!

COMPILATION OF THE MEGA-RARE PHILIPPINE POWER TRIO FROM THE EARLY SEVENTIES. RHYTHM SECTION WENT ON INTO SPEED GLUE AND SHINKI.

Juan De La Cruz (a band, not a man, so it's filed under "J") was a hard-rock powerhouse powertrio from the Phillippines who flourished in the nineteen seventies. If you're hip to other obscurites from the era, imagine a cross between Buffalo and Los Dug Dug's! This bootleg-looking disc reissues one of their earliest albums (no date given, sorry, but we'd guess '71 or so), and it's a killer. Totally rocked out bluesy stoner jams, with brilliantly fucked sex and party obsessed lyrics ("get drunk all day, get down all night", "I'll just wait for you down in the alley / and I'll show you how it can be"). And guitarist Wally Gonzales has got his acid-psych leads down, man! It's not clear who's singing (it might be the drummer, an American who previously played in the equally primal Japanese psychrock band Speed, Glue, & Shinki) but whoever it is, he's got the perfect delivery for this stuff, which includes one of our all-time favorite garage-psych songs, "I Wanna Say Yeah" -- perhaps the ultimate rock n' roll song title/lyric *EVER*. I mean, yeah! None of today's punks, stoners, or garage revivalists can touch that. text from Aquarius records SF.
