In 2018 LOS TWANGS celebrate their fifteen birthday, preaching from Zaragoza, Spain, their mix of rock and roll, surf and garage, always from a FRAT spirit. Over those years they have release 3 Lps and half a dozen EPs and 45's, but their biological clock said a change was needed.
The change came in the year 2016 with Esther, a girl with a great voice who leads the swing combo Swind Garret. They joined forces by chance, first with the idea of making some collaborations and finally releasing a single by the end of 2016 at Sleazy Records that meant the true beginning of Esther & Los Twangs.
Now the project of Esther with Los Twangs is consolidated with a new LP, titled BOOM CHA-CHA BOOM, in which you'll find the usual rock'n'roll, garage and surf sounds that made them famous but also there's room for latin beats, rhythm & blues and also a pinch of European female 60's pop. But do not be fooled, the musical essence of The Twangs is still beating powerful in these grooves.
In these 12 tracks you will find in some very personal, and even risky, covers from Johnny Kidd & The Pirates to Annisteen Allen, going through Helen Shapiro or Frances Gal, and even daring with standards like Ol'Man Mose or Sway, which result in a fresh and unconventional LP for what is normally expected from a band with its target anchored in the 50's and 60's sounds of rock'n'roll.
The LP has been produced by Ely Agramut and Los Twangs and its excellent excellent artwork has been designed by the great andalusian artist Carmela Maracas with pictures by the aragonese Beatriz Pitarch
