Was Punk Rock Born in Peru? - Los Saicos

Music website Noisey, take a look at Peruvian proto-punks Los Saicos and their influence on the music of today... 

Here's what they say about it:

Who invented punk rock? Was it the Ramones in New York? Was it the Sex Pistols in the UK? FALSE! It was Los Saicos in Peru.

One of punk's best kept secrets, Los Saicos were the original Peruvian proto-punks. After storming onto the Peruvian music scene, Los Saicos rocked for only a little over a year, but left a lasting influence on the sound of the 60s and future punk to come.
