Peace & Rhythm Records presents the double 12″ LP by Terrificos. Taking inspiration from Latin, African, Caribbean, North and South American sources as diverse as the “narco corridos” of Mexico and Afrobeat, not to mention Cowboy Western film soundtracks, surf, psychedelic Amazonian cumbia, dub, electronica, funk, Andean folk, even disco, this record is wide ranging yet cohesive. Go South has a unique, dynamic hybrid “narco-delic” sound that leaps out of the speakers (having the vinyl on 45 RPM helps).
Jake Fader, one of the two principal members of the band, says the record “is a soundtrack that has no film (yet). It is a diverse album that is not a traditional representation of any of the many genres it is influenced by. The only real rules were that the songs had to be a little freaky and mysterious.” As the other primary member of Terrificos, Ray Lugo (Kokolo, The Boogaloo Destroyers), explains it, “We discussed how long the process of making an album can sometimes be and thought it would be fun to try to write, record and mix an album within 30 days. We chose the sounds of South America because we had been listening to a lot of super funky music from Peru, Colombia and Panama.”
