It was a little like Christmas when I visited Bandcamp and saw that Wau y Los Arrrghs!!! has a new album available. When it comes to trashy rock n roll, this band is the bee’s knees, baby! It has the great qualities of garage rock: volume, energy, and just the right amount of madness. Now, is it as crazy as Cantan en Espanol – the album that is pretty much the gold standard for raw and crazy garage rock? It’s hard to say from what I heard. “Fruta Podrida” and “Tres Cabezas” seem crazy enough that they could easily fit on Cantan en Espanol.
Regardless of how you compare it to the band’s other albums, Wau y Los Arrrghs!!! deliver just what you’d expect: fuzzed-out guitars, organ, and vocals punctuated by a lot of primal shouts. If you’re already a fan of this band, you won’t be disappointed. If this is your first time checking out this wonderfully trashy band from Valencia, Spain…you’re welcome.
