You wanna be a hipster and be part of the in-crowd, but they don't play twist in your youth club? No problem. Go spend your pocket money on a slim tie or a mini skirt and the record 'Hipsville Teen Party' by The Montesas.
"The Montesas are the anti-Beatles. Says so in the press info of the trash band by the Catalanian Marcel Bontempi. Meaning, the Montesas beat is centered around the rock'n roll of the early Fab Four, spiced with twist, hully gully and loud guitars, but their stuff never got commercially trimmed and adapted to the masses."
(ROLLING STONE 3/2002)
"Call it beat, call it soul, call it surf, call it rock'n roll - the Montesas are all of these, and they're frigging good. Get it!" (OX # 47)
"Record of the month!" (HR 3 tv, Late Lounge)
"Germany's best neo-60's garage band with their longplay debut. Arousing, adrenaline-drenched twist and beat action."
"One helluva 60's beat-quake, mighty, mighty strong."
(Neue Osnabrücker Zeitung)
"...the songs sound like being recorded in a shady shack somewhere between Liverpool & Hamburg. That's groovy, skilful, and at all great."
(Rock `n`Roll Musikmagazin #142)
"This already knocked out the kids of the beat era in their time. You got a strong craving for twist, limbo, surf und shake? You gotta get this piece!" (Wildwechsel # 186)
