On this 1999 release, the Santoro lineup was vocalist Jose "El Toppo" Armetta, guitarist Sergio Chotsourian, bassist Gonzalo "Crudo" Villagra, an drummer Gonzalo Espejo. They might not be the most imaginative stoner band ever (hell, maybe they are, too, if I was ambitious enough to translate the lyrics), but they sound great, as I said, very reminiscent of their countrymen Los Natas (seriously, one of my twenty favorite bands of all time in any genre, that's why it amazed me no one bit on it), and the Kyuss/QOTSA comparison is quite accurate as well.
If I am wrong and they DID issue any material after this one, I'd LOVE to hear it......maybe John N or stoner rock kingpin Mark Eveligh (where have YOU been, Mark? Hope all is well) or even my amigo Jose or one of the Spanish all-star blogging team knows something about it.....anyway LISTEN TO THIS it is really good stoner rock, and for what else could one ask?
SANTORO-01 Ya No Hay/02 Germinal/03 Turblorna/04 Me Sangra/05 Cain Y Abel/06 Tutankamon/07 Hay Market/08 Astraliano/09 Aquavulva/10 Marlon Brandon/11 Un Vaso/12 Super 8 Volante
Again, I am HIGHLY recommending this one.
