Songs We Taught The Fleshtones.



Hasta donde yo sé, este mega-compilado se me cruzó en la vida producto de mi obsesión del año pasado con los Fleshtones, la mejor banda de fiesta de la historia. Buceando en slsk encontré estos diez discos repletos de joyas, un verdadero tesoro hundido, compuesto de aquellos singles, temas preferidos y éxitos que escuchaban (asumo) en sus disolutos días de adolescencia mientras preparaban Blue Whales (vodka + cualquier otra cosa en un tacho de basura).
Pero los discos vinieron sin ningún tipo de indicación o dato que me permitiese rastrear su creación. Lo más cercano que tengo a una explicación es lo siguiente: algún fan agarró ésta lista de temas covereados por los Fleshtones a lo largo de los años (que no sé si está actualizada o que), bajó diligentemente los archivos y armó esto. Por momentos tengo la impresión, incluso, de que están ordenados cronológicamente de acuerdo a la fecha en que realizó su rendición la banda de Nueva York. Sería mucha obsesión, pero internet es perfecta para eso. Quienes lo compilaron, de cualquier modo, son héroes anónimos del mejor rock de chasquear los dedos y tamborilear los pies.
Banda de sonido del verano, me parecía justo compartirla con todos aquellos que, lo sepan o no, ya son fanáticos de The Fleshtones.
Ahora solo faltaría que algún encarecido diseñador les arme tapitas a cada uno.

Guile dijo...

uoh! esto sí que es mucha música! le voy a entrar al 01 y si me cabe voy por más

gustavo dijo...

que locura esto. lo unico que objeto es que para mi gusto los compilados deberian estar armados por genero cosa de no ponerse a bajar tan al tun tun. soul por un lado, garage por el otro, invasion brit, new wave y asi. me diran que en la mescolanza esta la gracia pero yo preferiria mayor unidad tematica, de ultima tengo el winamp para hacer la compota de canciones.

pd. versionan a sylvester y a cameo, que capos.

Amadeo dijo...

@gustavo: para mi, justamente la gracia está en la mescolanza, descubrir cosas increíbles que ni te esperabas.

y los temas de cameo y sylvester son gloriosos (junto con el tema de tina turner "get it on" son una triada disco insuperable).

sincadenas dijo...
