The line up now also includes Gabriel Diederle (tambourine and machines) and Alfredo García Kalb (drums).
They recorded Universo their first album in 1991, which had a limited run on cassette format. They managed to create a whole new movement within Argentine rock music called Sonic Movement of Buenos Aires and were positioned as the new, independent band of the Buenos Aires scene. With the characteristic groove of Madchester bands of the era and the use of loop pedals they created their own sound that allowed them to take their Rock and Roll of irreverent guitars to the dance floors. The bands sound was defined by the experimentation, sentimental and ethereal vocal melodies, mixed with distorted guitars.
Iguana Lovers have played at some huge festivals and gigs alongside New Order, Ian Brown, Peter Hook, Mark Gardener and Loz Colbert of Ride, Inspiral Carpets, The Jesus and Mary Chain amongst many more.They released four LP’s: Universo, Esencial, Psicoclash, Surfing Caos and ten EP’s. since 1990.
The album was recorded between Buenos Aires, Manchester and Oxford and includes guest performances from Martyn Walsh (Inspiral Carpets) on bass, Adrián Yanzón (Los Pillos) on vocals and Loz Colbert from Ride on drums. Ride’s Mark Gardener then took charge of mixing and post production at his studio OX4 in Oxford. So now you have ten solid shoegaze/psych/indie killer tracks, as Iguana Lovers go from strength to strength!
Surfing Caos will be released on July 14th, 2017.
