Features: Turbopotamos - BAND TO WATCH 2009

Turbopotamos: BAND TO WATCH 2009

Every year I ask myself what band we should watch out for, I have run out of possibilities with Turbopotamos, I cannot understand why this awesome Peruvian band is not getting much attention in say Mexico for example. Honestly, they are not the best relatively ‘unknown’ band out there, but they have the potential to become HUGE, as I’ve been saying they should start by heading north, risk it and invade the Aztec country. I mean, this is a band destined to at the very least participate at a Vive Latino very soon, their rockabilly would work wonders among the chilanga banda crowds. Not to undermine several new bands that will breakthrough this year, I am hoping this is the year Turbopotamos gets its deserved attention outside their country, break them into big proportions. And I’m not trying to get all dictatorship on you, but there are people that follow this blog that have the possibilities to at least test their music. We give them our stamp of quality, their album No Love is quite a jewel for generic rock. A new record is soon to come, while we impatiently wait for it, let’s feature one of the best singles of 2008: “Terrorize You / Disco Flor”, a double feature turned adventure. Not only a feature, but it’s our official ‘Band To Watch – Most Likely to succeed for this 2009, wishful thinking?

“Well I cried and tried and cried and tried not to die, still I lied and lied and lied, till I saw the size of her knife.”

Muy de acuerdo con tu propuesta. Pos, el rock peruano tuvo un periodo de internacionalización entre el 2001 y 2003, con aceptación básicamente en los alrededores (Colombia, Chile, Bolivia, etc) siendo el mejor beneficiado Libido. De hecho, ellos han sido los únicos peruanos que se han presentado en el Vive Latino.

Hay una banda por la que siempre aposté por la que la apoyasen, La Sarita, que podría ser un intermedio entre Café Tacuba y Maldita Vecindad pero con matices netamente peruanos. Llegaron al Rock al Parque en Colombia, y se han buscado colocado internacional a su modo, pero en México, nadie los conoce. Se espera su lanzamiento de "Mamacha Simona" que se está postergando más de un año.

Otras banda que está ganando notoriedad en los últimos meses es Autobús que muchos partners mios me están recomendando. Lo poco que he oido me ha gusto y por lo menos le están rotando su video en MTV lo cual es positivo en difusión.

Esperemos que alguien ubique a Turbopótamos que se están enfocando básicamente en el público local ya que en los últimos años la radio abandonó el apoyo a la escena y lo único que les queda es tocar incesantemente como estos chicos lo hacen.

Turbopotamos and Sarita are very good. You should include also Bareto and Los Fuckin Sombreros (already separated) as a part of the outstanding bands. I would include the following guys:

Francois Peglau (ex LFS with demos in London)
