EL GUINCHO AUSTRALIAN TOUR 2010
Artwork by Alex Fregon
A huge bright spot of the weekend, El Guincho unites fans and many more newcomers with a high-energy, party-starting set of — for want of a better term — psychedelic world music. Armed with a sampler and a drum pad and flanked by a guitarist and bassist, Spain’s Pablo Díaz-Reixa inspires an electronics-driven, bass-prompted rain dance. More and more punters join in with time, until the last song resembles an ecstatic mass freakout. These guys could literally play all day without waning. Brilliant.
