Diretamente do Peru com conexão na Dinamarca via o selo Levitation Records, o debut do 3AM simplesmente chega como um murro bem forte no meio da cara, com o sugestivo nome de Ufo Blues Tapes o disquinho soa como um album perdido do Spacemen 3 ou do Loop ou melhor a fusão de ambos, e vejam bem, isso é algo a se comemorar, porque o 3AM não só presta reverência mas também agride os tímpanos por seus próprios méritos.
Encharcado de distorção e repetição tal qual os mestres ensinaram, o 3AM vai um pouquinho mais fundo, evocando Hawkwind e ai meus amigos, é fritação em níveis altíssimos.
Obviamente que o disquinho virou predileto aqui no TBTCI e recomendo aos fanáticos das chapações em geral.
Pegue sua bebida predileta, coloque em alto e bom som o Ufo Blues Tapes e veja o que o 3AM tem a nos contar.

Was very relax and with no budget. I recorded with the help of a friend as sound engineer and we recorded the guitars layers in his bedroom and then the vocals at my kitchen, took us a weekend to do it all. The mixing process we did in 4 sessions and that's it. Was a very easy going production.
