This is one of the lost gems of dark Latin American psychedelia.
One of the most prized recordings of Cult Occult, a group that starred in the Ibero-American underground of the 90s reaching to be presented in such mythical places as the CBGB'S in New York.
Blanco was edited during the difficult conjuncture of the beginning of the century when the group separated geographically, entering a long pause. The CD album was presented live in Spain in the Radio 3 Concerts in 2003, being until now the only Venezuelan group to appear in the emblematic program.
Blanco was released in CD format, with a very careful design and a musical content that drank of the psychedelia, the cursed poetry, the Caribbean imaginary and alternative rock. Circumstances, however, did not allow it to be promoted properly and the album remained in a kind of limbo. A few copies of that edition remain in good security and are part of some of the rewards.
More than 15 years later, with CULTO OCULTO members living between Spain, Mexico and Colombia, the album will be reissued in a luxurious presentation in double white vinyl with an effect, created in a handmade way, representing two irises and making of each vinyl a unique and unrepeatable piece, containing extra material from those sessions. An adapted art design, a new mastering, several unpublished songs and some extras of great historical value.
Who are behind this project and how to make it possible.
To undertake this ambitious project it is necessary to involve the old followers, the treasure hunters and in general the music lovers interested in discovering this lost jewel, and to get hold of a** high quality collectible art object**, which will do justice to that effort and that will bring as an additive the meeting of its artisans José Henríquez (voice, guitar), Sidney "Gato" Reyes (bass, chorus), José Juan Sanguinetti (drums, choirs) and Paulo de Oliveira (keyboards).
The goal of this Crowdfunding campaign is to raise the necessary funds to manufacture and distribute Blanco in this new format, through several levels of participation with which you can obtain exclusive rewards.
The initial impulse is being given by the band along with MusicMangiatore, a label born with this project and that aims to discover to the world hidden treasures that never met, that have been forgotten or are about to be born. To scour in the past to recover the good for rediscovering and also to see what happens in the present to project it.
