THE  GEM OF THE WEEK:
1969 PERU ST THOMAS PEPPER SMELTER-"SOUL & PEPPER"LABEL:VIRREY CAT.NO.:DVS 689

Peruvian band The (St. Thomas) Pepper Smelter. Perhaps the story of the band is not well known, but their achievements were great—and international: editions of their sole LP were produced in Peru, Mexico, Brazil and Ecuador, and 45rpm singles were published in Mexico and Greece.
St. Thomas Pepper Smelter was formed by Gerardo Manu
el Rojas on vocals and tambourine, Beto Tataje on rhythm guitar and lead guitar, Juan Carlos Barreda on bass and vocals, Carlos Manuel Barreda on drums and backing vocals (all from the famous group Los Shains), and Freddy Macedo on keyboards. Their first single was a cover of ‘Purple Haze’ b/w one of their own compositions, ‘A New Summer.’ The band then began to record their only LP. That album contains twelve tracks—six written by the band, and the other half cover versions. The band’s music could be described as freak beat; in many ways, it is a preview of the garage /surf style of Los Shain’s, heading towards the heavy psychedelic rock of Gerardo Manuel & El Humo. At the time, St. Thomas Pepper Smelter simply called it “underground music.” Gerardo’s voice is soft in the band’s own songs, and aggressive on the cover tunes; his guitar style oozes fuzz. The foundation of bass and drums by the brothers Barreda is very powerful and strong; and the songs benefit from the layers of keyboard played by Freddy Macedo.

GEM OF THE WEEK
WET TAXIS-FROM THE ARCHIVES
HOT RECORDS HOT 1012

Louis Tillett's first band, the Wet Taxis, commenced life as an experimental outfit in the manner of fellow Sydneysiders Severed Heads and Scattered Order before taking on a tougher 1960s-influenced direction. Their classic debut single on the Hot label, ‘C’mon’ (1984), boasted an authentic garage/R&B sound heavily influenced by such American garage/punk bands as the Moving Sidewalks, We the People and the Chocolate Watchband plus legendary Australian group the Atlantics (who originally issued the song as ‘Come On’ in 1967). Alongside the likes of Died Pretty, the Celibate Rifles, the Lime Spiders, the New Christs, the Hoodoo Gurus and the Eastern Dark, the Wet Taxis came to epitomise the Australian garage rock sound and aesthetic of the 1980s. The band’s only album was the appropriately named From the Archives (Hot, 1984).

G.O.D RECORDS PRESENT THE GEM OF THE WEEK

APHRODITE'S CHILD-END OF THE WORLD  1968


MERCURY (FRANCE) 138.350 MCY


This is the story of three young friends, who travel from Greece to France in search of a better creative 
environment. Back in 1968 a military regime has taken over the government in Greece and just as many other Greek artists, Vangelis Papathanassiou, Demis Roussos and Lucas Sideras decide to leave their country. A fourth friend, Argyris Koulouris has to stay behind to fulfil his army duty. Although aiming to travel to England, Vangelis, Demis and Lukas first get in trouble as they are not allowed to enter the UK due to their work-permits, and then get stuck in Paris due to a transportation strike. By that time they decide to stay in Paris, and sign up with the Mercury record label as the band "Aphrodite's Child", with the help of Pierre Sberro.


Their first single "Rain and tears", released in May 1968, immediately strikes gold and becomes a huge hit worldwide. The song plays in France during the student riots, and is an instant success in France and other countries in Europe. Due to the success of the single it is time to record a full album "End of the world". The title song of the album, released in October 1968, becomes the second single of Aphrodite's Child. A third single "Valley of sadness" is also shortly issued in France, but later quickly withdrawn.

Tracklist and Credits

End of the world


Don't try to catch a river
Mister Thomas
Rain and tears
The grass is no green
Valley of sadness
You always stand in my way
The shepherd and the moon


Day of the fool
All songs composed by E. Papathanassiou.

All lyrics written by Boris Bergman.
