28. LOS FLECHAZOS - Los Flechazos EP (Detour Records DR043) 1996
I wrote about this cool Spanish mod band months ago, check out the archives. This time I'll highlight their 'must get' four track EP released by small indie label Detour Records.
All songs are sung in English which is a big help for me cos I don't know the Spanish lingo and I ain't got a clue what they're singing about. Two of the songs are Flechazos originals written by band leader Alejandro Diez, although the mod rocker 'Pretty Sight Of Sorrow' is co-written by bass player Paco Vila.
The two covers are interesting. They tackle 'Good Thing' in a good way but it can't match the original Paul Revere and the Raiders version. But their attempt at 'Dream In My Mind' is a killer. For those of you who don't know the song it was originally done by English freakbeat legends Rupert's People.
Plus points also must go to Detour Records for the excellent cover (front and back)....
