It's not always all about the music. Sometimes it's partly because of the goofy ass shit behind the music. That would be the case for the Speakers' "Un Sueño Magico" ("A Magic Dream"). I have no idea how I came across it, it could have been the fuzz divining rod at work, but I had to post it because it's got a few qualifiers. It's from Colombia, it's old, it's weird and it has fuzz. Colombian psych to be a little more exact. Actually, if you want to get exact, it's whacked out shit. And look, the dudes aren't wearing any clothes. Lovely visual guys. Despite being from Colombia, where you would think they'd be called "Los Speakers" they used "The". They must of thought that international stardom was not far away. Yeah, listen to it and tell me it doesn't sound like a Top 40 hit. Seriously, these guys have "we don't give a shit" written all over them. Awesome. Viva la don't give a shitters. Anyway, if you bother going to the post, which you should because it's a good one, you'll find out what they did as payment for studio time. Even that's whacked out. Nope, tonight's all about the weirdos. Music on its own merit will have to take a backseat.
