    Dreams Fantasies & Nightmares:

    Los Mockers, who are often considered the best sixties South American band, started in 1962-63 as a skiffle group, playing with home-made instruments at the "Instituto Zorilla" in Montevideo, Uruguay. They took the name Teddy Boys in 1964 and their repertoire consisted of rock 'n' roll numbers by Elvis Presley and Little Richard, instrumentals alá Shadows, and Latin songs like Perfidia or La Bamba. The later, after the British Invasion, turned to Twist And Shout.

    In 1965, they changed their name to Los Encadenados and discovering the first Rolling Stones' album, they started playing songs like Carol, Route '66, Walking The Dog, and The Animals' I'm Crying, in night clubs and school dances.

    When they became Los Mockers, in 1966, they were spotted by talent scouts of EMI Argentina that were on vacation in Uruguay. They signed a contract, and the band went to Buenos Aires to record and play in clubs and T.V. shows. Their records were not a big success, and in 1967 they returned disappointed to Uruguay, where they disbanded later the same year.

    Their first album is very good and influenced greatly by The Rolling Stones. Their best tracks, What A Life, Let Me Try Again, You Got It, Show Me The Way and Can't Be A Lie really sound as if they were left out from the 'Stones' mid-'60s albums. Empty Harem is a little bit different, drawing influences from Paint It Black and mid-eastern melodies. It's an excellent song. Los Mockers had a good sense of melody, which is not so common in the teen bands.

    Their second album, blended psychedelia with bubblegum and was far less effective than their debut.

    After their demise, Pereira joined the Argentine band Los Walkers and Hirschfield had a spell with Los Delfines and then headed to Spain.
