Los Mads started out in the mid-1960's, playing covers and a few of their own songs on Peruvian television. But a chance sea-side encounter with Mick Jagger and Keith Richards, which took place after a private party, gave The Mads the chance to go to England; interest from Stones' manager Marshall Chess got them backstage to see Hendrix at the Isle of Wight-and recording time in the Rolling Stones studio. Some demos recorded there and at Jagger's Stargroves Castle (recorded live to studio truck, just like Led Zeppelin did for their third and fourth albums) plus a name change to Molesto got them gigs at the main venues in London. They jammed with Steve Winwood and Brian Davison (The Nice), they played with Jeff Beck and Carmine Appice, and Molesto's guitar player, Alex Ventura, worked in a clothing boutique alongside Freddie Mercury and Roger Taylor. They were in the musical heart of England. And at that point, faced with growing friction within the group, Molesto disbanded. This disc collects recordings from all three stages of Los Mads/The Mads/Molesto's six-year career, including two tracks from the Stargroves session. The early tracks are groovy post Summer of Love stuff. 'Birds in My Tree' is a musical creamsicle, just right for summer nights, while yhe excellent eight plus minute instrumental 'Tumor Bossa' has a Santana-esque feel. But the flamethrower guitar on Molesto's tracks like 'Feels Like Love' and 'Fly Away' (which luckily clocks in at more than seven minutes) needs to be heard to be believed. Hard driving and heavy, wild, fast, rhythmic, and furious, this is top of the table stuff. Most tracks are sung in English. This deluxe edition includes a glossy insert full of photos, a bi-lingual booklet with band history, lyrics and a reproduction gig poster.
Track List: 1. If You Feel (4:39); 2. Fly Away (7:04); 3. Feels Like Love (2:59); 4. Tumorbossa (8:37); 5. Birds In My Tree (4:54); 6. Live A Little Longer (3:22); 7. Rock & Roll Woman (9:18); 8. Aouh Aouh (6:36). Bonus tracks: 9. Last Time (3:00); 10. I've Got That Feeling (3:06)
