"Peru Bravo tells the whirlwind story of a culture in flux when, during the late `60s and early `70s, Lima boasted dozens of young bands full of ideas, spontaneous and unfazed by the instability in Peru. Featuring alternative heroes Traffic Sound and Laghonia alongside a selection of unheralded short-lived groups, Peru Bravo is a funk-fuelled ride through a radical decade. It would however, only be a matter of years before this movement disappeared just as quickly as it had arrived as a new, uncompromising military dictatorship, led by General Juan Velasco Alvarado, took hold. Peru Bravo was compiled by top chef, author and restaurateur Martin Morales (Ceviche), Duncan Ballantyne (Ex-Soundway) & Andrés Tapia del Rio (Repsychled Records). It features 15 tracks and unearths the full spectrum of incendiary underground funk, soul and psych sounds between 1968 & 1974 (the reign of Velasco) including versions of Jimi Hendrix's `Hey Joe', The Meter's `Cissy Strut' and a Steppenwolf's `Sookie Sookie'."
