Los Gatos Salvajes, from Rosario, Santa Fe in Argentina, were a beat and garage rock band active in the early to mid-1960s, following which members Litto Nebbia and Ciro Fogliatta would go on to form the later, more successful group, Los Gatos.[1] They were one of Argentina's first teenage rock & roll bands, and part of the popular worldwide beat movement inspired by the success of the Beatles and the British Invasion.[1] They enjoyed only limited record sales, despite some degree of success in their television appearances, but are recognised as a pioneering group in Argentina.[1]

The band was founded in 1962 by keyboardist Ciro Fogliatta. He was joined by Rubén Rojas on vocals, Juan Carlos "Chango" Pueblas on guitar, and Ricardo Bellini on drums. In 1963 Guillermo Romero would join on bass, and Jose "Tito" Adjaiye would replace Bellini.[2] The original name of the band was The Wild Cats and they were influenced by The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, and The Yardbirds. Rubén Rojas was replaced by singer Litto Nebbia, who also played harmonica.[1] At Nebbia's request they translated their name into Spanish and became Los Gatos Salvajes, and began performing songs in their native language.[1] In 1963 they would release their first single "Oye niña"/"Calculadora".

As their popularity increased, Los Gatos Salvajes eventually re-located to Buenos Aires, and made a strong impression through a series of television appearances through which they were able to appeal to young rock fans in the metropolis.[1][3] Their popularity on TV led to a record deal. After several singles, Los Gatos Salvajes released their first (and only) LP, the self-titled Los Gatos Salvajes in 1965.[1] Sales for the album were disappointing due to poor promotion by the label, which was financially struggling.[1][3] The album sold less than a thousand copies before the company went broke.[1][3]

Less than a year after it was released, Adjaiye, Pueblas and Romero decided it was time to return home to Rosario and the group broke up.[1] Nebbia and Fogliatta stayed in Buenos Aires and assembled a new group, Los Gatos, which would enjoy greater commercial success, selling 200,000 copies of their debut single "La balsa." Los Gatos would come to be recognised as founders in the Argentine National Rock movement.

In 2007, a compilation, Los Gatos Salvajes: Complete Recordings, was released in the United States by No Fun Productions.[1]

  2. ^ Demming, Mark. "Los Gatos Salvajes: Artist Biography". AllMusic. AllMusic, a division of All Media Network, LLC. Retrieved 2015. Check date values in: |accessdate= (help) - Allmusic makes reference to Romero and Adjaiye as if original members. It says that the band started in 1964. However, the Spanish Wikipedia article states that the band started earlier and gives detailed lists of earlier members. Though this particular information is not sourced, the likelihood is that the Spanish Wikipedia article is correct, so I have maintained that information, which my, to my best judgement, is correct.
