Los Amigos Invisibles
The Venezuelan Zing Son
(Luakabop)
For a Latin American band to register with Anglos, it needs to be 75 years old or indulge in some gringo tricks. You throw a record like this on to get the floor throbbing and the women into a tropical reverie of movement and clothes-removal. “Gerundio” sets up a theremin-like groove; “Superfucker” is an invitation to shred the ego. Los Amigos Invisibles should be named after chameleons for how fluidly they shimmy in and out of disco, samba, funky jam and guitar freakout.
—Doug Taylor
