Perrosky has been the name of a soloist, a duo and a trio, but without confusion, is a registered trademark of rock and blues the Chilean style. Alejandro Gómez, named by his friends as Perrosky, moved from Copiapó to Santiago in the late 90's to study composition at the Modern School of Music. While trying to decipher and write sheet music for string ensembles, he spent time writing songs influenced by American blues legends which he played on acoustic guitar and harmonica and recorded in a precarious four-track recorder. It was the turn of the century, and Alejandro with his brother, drummer Alvaro Gómez, the bassist Bernardita Martinez and the guitarist Alvaro Guerra started out their garage rock group "Guiso". Currently Perrosky is about to release their fourth full-length: "Vivos". The album was produced by both Gómez brothers and contains 13 songs. "Alive" echoes the interesting proposal that the group has been working for a while, giving American roots sounds like blues, country, punk and rockanrol, a "Chilean touch" transforming them into something where clearly both the composition of songs and sounds are totally recognizable and inimitable. In 2013, Perrosky is also played at Lollapalooza Chile and Brazil, being the only Chilean band in the Brazilian version of the festival.
