You have to wonder what the people of conservative 70’s Latin American thought of hard rock music. Latin Americans tend to hold on to their traditions a bit more tightly than others. So what would have been the social or political implications of this music, if any? And I say political because these weren’t the most stable times in Peru (Conjunto El Opio) or Mexico (Yndio, Dug Dug’s). I might be stretching here, but I am really reminded of an Eastern European approach to rock music. Almost like a naive approach to what rock music symbolizes. You know, rebellion, freedom, drugs, pissing your parents off. Anyway, I’m running out of time again. METAL!!!
