return seemed to be a Utopia hard to attain. However, in May 2005,
the group announced they would return to the stage. Hugo and
Osvaldo Fattoruso, Roberto "Pelín" Capobianco and
Carlos "Caio" Vila have gotten back together and
resumed a band that revolutionized the Río
de la Plata music scene in the 1960's with hits such as "Break
It All" and "Never Never".
In September 2005,
The Shakers recorded a new music album at Buenos
Aires Circo Beat studios. This album combines the
Shakers essence with over forty years of accumulated
experience dedicated to different music styles. "Bonus
Tracks", an album with twelve brand new compositions
and a version of "Break It All" that introduces
an acoustic piano is the result of this combination.
In this new era,
The Shakers have introduced some changes. They sing
in Spanish and also sound different because their basic structure
(two guitars, a bass and battery) has mutated into a bass, keyboard,
and two batteries. Of course, when singing their classics, Hugo
and Osvaldo go back to playing electric guitars.
In short, whereas
in the past they pretended to be The Beatles, now
they pretend to be The Shakers.
The artists experienced
success at an early age. Hugo remembers that, "we
experienced it with the intensity of youth, immersed in a changing
world environment after the arrival of pop music."
