Vinilisssimo - Walflower Complextion, The - S/T LP

Article number: MRSSS 551LP
Quantity: 1
While released in Columbia, The Walflower Complextion were actually American teenagers, children of U.S. Government staff, attending high school in Bogot√°, Colombia. Somehow they got a deal with local label Daro and released their first LP in 1966. The album shows an evident influence of the British Invasion bands, featuring four Stones covers and one from The Kinks, but it is in their own originals and instrumentals where the band showcases the best of their talent. "Blue Bells", a druggy garage delight, or "Chris's B's", leaning towards early surf music, display the raw sound of this bunch of teens: beautiful vocals, psych guitars, wild drums and tambourines shaken in the background. They broke up in June 1967 after some of the members finished high school, and little else is known about the next steps in music of Fred and Rick Sampson, Chris Kryzs, Pat Sinex, and Mark Lusk. Despite their short career, The Walflower Complextion has gained a cult status among those into Colombian bands such as Los Speakers or Los Young Beats. A must for garage collectors!
