Product Details

The origin of The Flippers goes back to 1964 when Arturo Astudillo (guitar) and Carlos Martinez (bass) started The Thunderbirds. One year later, with Miguel Durier (guitar and vocals) and Guillermo Acevedo (drums) on board, they changed their name to The Flippers, after the American TV series featuring the famous dolphin Flipper. After paying their dues on stage playing covers of British beat bands, they released their first album, Discotheque, in 1966, featuring covers sung in both English and Spanish (of songs by The Yardbirds, The New Vaudeville Band, Larry Williams...) as well as trademark surf instrumentals full of reverb and fuzz, including Impromptu Jazz a Go-Go and Master Flipper. Their second LP, Psicodelicias, came out the following year, again on the Codiscos label. It was sleeved in a psychedelic cover and contained 12 tracks; three original compositions and nine covers, among them The Beatles' With a Little Help from My Friends and Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, Mitch Ryder's Sock It to Me - Baby!, The West Coast Pop Art Experimental Band's Shifting Sands, The Blues Magoos' (We Ain't Got) Nothin' Yet, and The Lords' Don't Mince Matter. Psicodelicias also features compositions by the band, including La Carta (a fuzz ballad with a Cuban flair), Con Su Soledad (another intimate and heartfelt moment), and what could be considered their flagship song, Flipprotesta, a wild and screaming punk beat number close to the Nadaist movement to which their compatriots Los Yetis belonged. The Flippers are, along with The Speakers and Los Yetis, one of the outstanding bands of the Colombian garage beat scene, and Psicodelicias is a classic album performed with raw, direct energy and enhanced by simple production. Presented here in it's first-ever facsimile reissue, it offers a broad survey of the hits and genres (soul, surf, garage, psychedelia) popular at the time in Colombia and around the world.
