From Brazil:
Gal Costa's 1969 lp is as out and acid -rock as anything from Deutschland
As is Gilberto Gil's 1969 lp
Both are Duprat deals
Os Mutantes "divina comedia" is my favorite & perhaps most "rock" lp of theirs - but to hear some way crazy Brazilian Rock:
Modulo 1000's "Nao Fale Com Paredes" lp is a monster of heavy-but-free-form acid prog-psych that reminds of Faust in many ways...
From Argentina, the first Billy Bond lp has a track that sounds just like some lost Early Can track -Jaki & Holger groove w/ clean delayed guitar, echoey vocals...a groove
From Argentina :
I love both Almendra lps, the first is less raw rock but it's strongly written & produced material with one long wah guitar jam track also
-but further out still are Spinetta's next group, Pescado Rabioso's lps, then there is Jorge Pinchevsky's lp which came out on Harvest, he plays electric violin but it's no fusion fest, it's tripped out freak rock w/ tape manipulation & rock guitars
Alejandro Medina's lp is great
Color Humano's lps are all great (in a Robin Trower's "Bridge of Sighs" groove)
La Cofradia de la Flor Solar's lp is amazing acid-blues rock but was hurt by the cd release's mix which is missing great lead guitar on at least one song
& Kubero Diaz' s solo lp blows away any Amon Duul I've heard except maybe 'The Archangel's Thunderbird'
That's enough now, I'm tired of typing, but there's PLENTY more music from South America that is worth checking out for anyone adventurous & open minded enough to appreciate Faust/Neu!/Cluster/Harmonia/Can etc.
