The Versions: Chilean 70s rock 'n' roll quartet prep release of third album 'Calling Lucifer'


The Versions, formed in Santiago, Chile in 2004 by Samuel Maqueira and Aldo Benincasa of The Ganjas, along with Luciano Mariño of Los Chinches came together and recorded their debut album “4-Track Summer” with producer Álvaro Gómez (Perrosky).

Six years later, they released their second album 'Resurrection Hotel', where Alejandro Gómez (Solar) got on board (and featured Bernardita Martínez (Guiso) as a special guest) to help cook up their signature sounds of 70s proto-rock 'n' roll and sleazy psychedelia.

With a renewed lineup and a LP in the oven entitled "Calling Lucifer" the Algo Records band has released their most recent single, entitled “Summer Romance”. The album draws influence from Flamin' Groovies, Johnny Thunders & The Heartbreakers, Iggy's Kill City, Nikki Sudden & The Jacobites, Dogs d'amour, among others.

The album features a fiery, cover version of “Fortune of Fame”, originally written by British band Jacobites, along with "It's Not Enough" from Johnny Thunders and the Heartbreaker.s Both songs were recorded and mixed by Alejandro “Perrosky” with mastering by Ivan Julian (Richard Hell and The Voivods).
