The Peruvian garage psych band Laghonia released their debut album Glue in '68. They only went on to release one more album Etcetera in '71, channeling a different sound. This piece of prog flavored psychedelic garage is unmatched by any other Peruvian psych bands of the time such as Traffic Sound and El Polen, Laghonia uses a Hammond B-2 organ, heavy wah-wah guitar and a huge percussion section to produce their unique sound. You can hear many influences from bands such as the Yardbirds and Hendrix, check out "Glue" and "Billy Morsa."
