It's just a music blog from an occasional music fan. This blog doesn't target a specific music genre but my preferences lead me more to music gravitating around Garage Rock. But that means many different genres mixes like with Psychedelic, Post Punk, Punk, Country, Pop and many more. I also like some other genres of music like Rock, Psychedelic, tempered Experimental, Post Punk and Art Rock.

Also it's just a personal blog and sometimes I'll post some comments about some... mainstream albums too. Not that it will bring anything to the billions of posts or reviews already written about such album, but just because it's a blog about music I like a lot and I just want share it, or at least share it potentially ... lost in the world wide web but ready to be shared. :-D

I make the blog in English despite I don't write well in that language because I believe it will be easier for international users. So I apologize to English speaking users.


The word is garage three times, or two times, or even once.

Die Zorros - Future (Voodoo Rhythm, 2012)

It's a rather special Garage Rock album by a rather special Swiss band. Firstly the style is special because it's supposed to be an album from a Garage band during the 60's that tried imagine Garage Rock in the far future. The result is both old school and weirdly modern.

Moreover, more than half of the songs are covers of classics or less classics from Rock history plus one from Jazz. But they are completely deconstructed and mistreated up to the point of being difficult to recognize, or at least the result is very different from the originals.

And the diversity of the covers is quite wide, from recent Pop to classic Pop and Rock, and even Metal, Jazz, Rockabilly and more: Amy Winehouse "No No No", Black Sabbath "Black Sabbath", The Rolling Stones "Paint It Black",  The Beatles "Walrus Eats Taxmen" , Morris Albert "Feelings", The Jive Boys "Hey Rockabilly", Herbert Jarczik "Der Komissar", Moody Blues "Nights In White Satin" and Rod Stewart "Sailing".

Although based on two funny and weird postulates, and from a band whose main goal is to have fun and to not take music seriously, the result is an excellent Garage Rock album and not common.

You can listen the album on some streaming sites, I noticed Deezer, Rdio and Spotify. Or you can preview it here but at a quality only a bit better than standard streaming, and be fair, if you like dig it, support the artists and don't forget to buy the album.

To support the artists you can buy the LP, CD or cassette at Voodoo Rhythm label. You can also buy the digital album at the various standard places.
