Get Hip Archive Series (GHAS-5065)

This album collects the entirety of Los Mockers’ original recordings, including an LP, serveral singles, and a cover of the Rolling Stones’ seminal “Paint It Black.” The record is presented by Get Hip Recordings in gorgeous hi-fi, pressed on durable 180-gram vinyl and compact disc.

Los Mockers are widely regarded as one of the best Latin American bands to emerge from the Uruguayan Invasion of the ‘60s. Formed in 1963 in Montevideo, Uruguay, the young group relocated to Argentina in 1966 after winning a contract with EMI Argentina.

Los Mockers modeled themselves heavily on the Rolling Stones, covering many of their songs (in English). Vocalist Polo Pereira (with a slight accent) emulates Mick Jagger's early snarl more accurately than anyone else from the time.

Although the group’s original lineup disbanded in 1967, several enduring variations continued to record under the Los Mockers name throughout the late ‘60s. In the '80s and '90s, the band reached a much greater audience via internationally distributed reissues of their mid-'60s work.

Los Mockers’ original lineup reunited in 2012, producing a new album - Do It Again! - and performing their first European live show at León, Spain’s Purple Weekend festival.
