It should go without saying that we at the Numero Group are unapologetic Alfonso Lovo fans. Still, it’s nice to find folks with who your tastes jibe. The Wirepublished in the UK but read/respected globally—thought enough of our latest LP to spill ink on Lovo’s lysergic opus. Drawing spiritual comparisons to fellow cosmonauts Shuggie Otis and Sixto Rodriguez, writer Richard Henderson hits the nail on the head with his succinct review of Lovo’s eight-song neutron bomb. Regarding Roman Cerpas’ adventurous mixing, Henderson says what we’re all thinking: “The engineer controlling that recirculating tape echo in Lovo’s studio obviously was having a great time.”

Good to the last tab, Alfonso Lovo’s La Gigantona is available at our online store and throughout the mainland. Our UK fans have no doubt found that Honest John’s (among others) is holding, and will be until all adventurous listeners are satisfied. We think you’ll agree: the harsh tokes are actually the best tokes.
