The distinctive soundtracks of Spaghetti Western films—based on twangy guitars, jumbled percussion, loud shouted calls, and tension-inducing string ensembles—are as much a part of the 1960s as surf music. For Los Protones, a surf rock band formed in Lima, Peru, in 2007, both styles are connected. Their songs bring together psych, surf music, and traditional Peruvian sounds with build-ups that recall scenes of gunslingers facing off to death. They’ll never be as somber as a Western gun duel, though: With offbeat song titles such as “Los Ovnis No Pasan Los Sabados” (“UFOs Don’t Fly on Saturdays”), Los Protones tap into surf’s happy-go-lucky attitude. --- By Luis Minvielle · "A Brief History of South American Surf Rock" · Bandcamp Daily · November 12, 2021
