Trashy Tuesday: Wau y Los Arrrghs!!!

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.

“Demolicion” by Wau y Los Arrrghs!!! – the perfect garage song?

I’ve spent a lot of time on the topic of garage rock this week because a lot of garage rock grabs my attention. When it comes to grabbing attention, it’s hard to think of a song that does it better than “Demolicion” by Wau y Los Arrrghs!!! from Valencia, Spain. This song is everything you want in a garage rock song. It’s wild, raw, loud, and crazy. It is two and a half minutes of sheer rock and roll madness. And my three-year-old son loves the song too. So take notes all you bands that stand on stage and stare at your shoes while you play. This is what can happen if you put some manic energy and (dare I say?) balls into a song.
