Biografia

Telegraph Avenue got their start when lead singer, Bo Ichikawa, returned home to Peru after a six-month stint in San Francisco (if you hadn’t already guessed by their obvious choice of band name) and their 1971 debut album soon became the best-selling rock album of the year. Here heavy distorted guitar mixed with Latin bass and percussion meld to create a kind of south-of-the-equator Latin groove meets West Coast psych with a slightly poppier feel. All lyrics are sung in English. The band unfortunately split after the release of just one more album, but the drummer and singer would soon join up with two Argentine friends to form another great band, the South American band of the ’70s, Tarkus. Don’t miss your chance to discover a great album by a great band.

Bo Ichikawa - lead guitar, acoustic guitar, harmonic, xylophone & vocals
Alex Nathanson - bass, acoustic guitar, clavichord & vocals
Chachi Lujan - acoustic guitar, bongos, congas & vocals
Walo Carrillo - drums, percussion, maracas, tambourine & vocals

On July 1971, Telegraph Avenue’s debut album appeared on the market in Peru, and became the best selling rock record of the year. The time was right for Latin rock with psychedelic touches and Telegraph Avenue delivered: guitars saturate the amplifiers using natural distortion and feedbacks, with Latin bass lines, powerful drums and Latin flavored percussion filling all songs with a unique sound. Their songs sometimes sound like Grand Funk’s early records, but others have vocal melodies more likened to a West Coast psych style.
