Come for cool covers of Tommy James & The Shondells' Hanky-Panky & The Box Tops' The Letter. Stay for the rest of these vintage Peruvian garage-pop nuggets.

THE EDITED PRESS RELEASE:Los Yorks became the epitome of Peruvian garage sound and the kings of the multi-group concerts which teenagers flocked to on Saturday and Sunday mornings in Lima’s main movie theaters.

It took them a year to turn their ideas into songs for their first LP, which was successfully released at Christmas in 1967. It features a beat-influenced go-go twang guitar garage psych tone throughout, including a bunch of covers like Alan y sus BatesPronto Un Doctor or The Box TopsThe Letter, along with amazing originals like No Puedo Amar, featuring an intense garage beat.”
