The original Ave Rock line-up included Borda, Sainz, Glavic and drummer Marcelo Saborido. Antogna (who have had collaborated with Orion’s Beethoven) soon replaced Saborido and Caló joined afterwards.

The progressive sound of this group -full of rhythm changes and rich melodic treatments- was based on the virtuosity of Caló, Borda and Sainz. Their first album includes the sweet "Ausencia", the moody "El absurdo y la melodía" and "Gritos", with great guitars and organ. Side B features the powerful "Déjenme seguir" and the long improvised instrumental "Viva Bélgica". It was a very good effort though the group were dissatisfied with the poor mix. Unable to achieve a deeper symphonic sound, due to the lack of sophisticated equipment, Caló quit and was replaced by Salomone. (Some time later, Caló went on to play with Astor Piazzolla, the great tango innovator. He is still involved in the new-tango movement). With a new line-up led by Sainz (who wrote all the songs), Ave Rock premiered their second album at the Astral Theatre in Buenos Aires, on November 12th 1976. More influenced by bands like Yes, Flash, or Greenslade, Espacios -featuring only three long compositions ("4:30 en el universo", "Surcos en el aire" and "Pausa en espacios")- was still a good record, though not as good as the first one. The LP went unnoticed and Ave Rock split. The gifted guitarist Luis Borda later played and recorded with Raúl Porchetto, to finally devote to... new-tango! He formed his own instrumental tango group and released several CDs as well. Both Ave Rock LPs are extremely hard to get (especially the second one) and have never been reissued.
