REVIEW: Los Cheyenes – Los Cheyenes!! (1965-1967)
Another band from Spain that had a lot of singles but never had the opportunity to release a full album is the band, Los Cheyenes. Hailing from Barcelona, the band took their style and influences from The Kinks.
The band was formed in 1964 and was signed by RCA Victor in 1965 where they released their first single, Conoces El Final. The single was a 4-track 7″ which contained original songs written by band members, Jose Maria Garces and Roberto Vercher. Next to Jose Maria and Roberto were Joselín Vercher (bass, backing vocals) and Ramón Colom (drums).
The band released two more 4-track 7″ singles in the next year by RCA Victor keeping their garage rock sound intact. It was in 1966, the band’s lead singer Roberto Vercher left the group. He was replaced by Michel Galera(vocals) Jose Luis Moro (guitar) and the band released another single. This would be the last for the band. Jesulín Vercher did go on to found the band La Salseta del Poble Sec which fell in the genre of salsa and tropical.
In the late ’90s, RCA released the band’s discography on CD. Indie Spanish vinyl company released a 180g vinyl with all sixteen songs in Los Cheyenes’ database. If you’re a fan of ’60s rock and that early garage sound, Los Cheyenes are a decent band to add to your collection.
