DARWIN TEORIA - DE LA CECA A LA MECA (SALLY'S UPTIGHT)


One of the most outrageously infectious records I've ever heard.

This Darwin Teoria (not to be confused with Charles) were a Dutch group relocated to Spain who cut at least two singles, of which THIS is the one. Immediately we are hit with an overload of fuzzed out wah wah guitar and some Hammond organ that takes us on a wild ride whether it's the dance floor, living room or behind the wheel. Almost silly, nursery rhyme like verses make way for the anthemic chant of the chorus; my friend Brian (aka DJ Midnight Cowbwoy, and that is not a misspelling) played this song TWICE at Mod Chicago and when he played it again at around 3 AM Saturday night/ Sunday morning it was a call to arms that hypnotized and brainwashed me that I MUST HAVE THIS RECORD, while those of us still awake were tearing up the dance floor to this massive sound. Luckily I was able to score one of my own rather quickly. It's been stuck in my head ever since.

from 1970...

I'm Dutch myself, and unfortunately never took the trouble of relocating to Spain. Which is why I didn't get te opportunity to visit one of your shows. Pity.

Nice that your visiting Europe brings some temporary Euroflavour to the blog, very surprising to hear an unfamiliar gem from some fellow countrymen. LOVE the guitar work!

Btw, I comment FAR too little compared to the joy your blog brings me. Keep up the great work!
