Los Siquicos Litoraleños « le: septembre 16, 2009, 00:13:42 am »
worm tour & residency SEPTEMBER 2009

From the outland countryside surrounding the small town Curuzú Cuatiá in the province Corrientes of North East Argentina, comes a exceedingly rare treat for the ears. Los Siquicos Litoraleños is a unique band formed in 2004. Originally an all improvisational freeform band, their music soon developed into an unclassifiable, highly original style incorporating elements of cumbia, subtle noise, lo-fi tape manipulation, chamamé (the popular folk music of Corrientes), the angular guitars of Beefheart's Magic band and a rich variety of non-rock rhythms.

Being a peripheral band living in a semi rural town they remained outsiders to the argentinian rock circuit, even though concerts in Buenos Aires caused a stir amongst local musicians witnessing their often unpredictable shows. These more often than not included extended line ups, performing segments of free music and altered versions of chamame and cumbia tunes from the gaucho dance bands of Curuzu Cuatia. Los Siquicos' sweltering Live shows also display a crucial visual side - the members cloaked in surreal gaucho costumes whilst psychedelic images of cows, fractals, u.f.o´s and the countryside provide a projected backdrop. Locals therefore lovingly dubbed Los Siquicos as 'El Pink Floyd de los pobres' (a poor man's Pink Floyd).

Although their cd-r discography still remains buried in obscurity, the band is rapidly harvesting international acclaim. Amongst their admirers are also the Sublime Frequencies label staff.
