Saicomania hits the US

By 16 May, 2011

A new documentary on Los Saicos, one of the heaviest South American bands of the 60s, is preparing for its premiere in the US.

If you’re a fan of 60s garage and psych then you’ll love Los Saicos. Supposedly unaware of the similar scene happening in America at the same times as then during the 60s, this is potent, unwieldy rock at its best. Saicomania is a new documentary that has been made to tell their story. You can see the trailer here:

Saicomania will be having its US premiere at Artists’ Television Access on May 29th. It has already been shown in Peru and will be hopefully be spreading worldwide soon. We will let you know once we have some more info.

To get you in the mood, here is “El Entierro de Los Gatos” by Los Saicos:
