"Memorias del Rock Argentino II"

(2017) - Praga Ediciones
Libro

Argentine - Book in Spanish - Format 22x 15 cm. In printing paper with 176 black & white pages / coloured cover.

After the publication of “Silencio Marginal: memorias del Rock Argentino” (2014), Lautaro Castro, Maximiliano Ceci and Eduardo Casali intended to go well beyond the foundational stages and boundaries of the local Rock scene, in order to properly investigate a period rich in strong experimentation as occurred during the 70's and early 80's.

José Luis Fernández (La máquina de hacer pájaros), Eduardo Frezza (El Reloj), Osvaldo Favrot (Espíritu), Pomo Lorenzo (Invisible), Juan del Barrio (MIA), Gustavo Moretto (Alas), David Lebón (Seru Giran), Vitico (Riff), and Gustavo Bazterrica (Los abuelos de la nada), were the chosen voices to portray, through a sincere and experiential testimony, a period of musical flourishing, heavily indented by Symphonic Rock, Jazz Rock, Pop Rock, and Hard Rock.

ALMENDRA - Ezequiel Ábalos Ver información de la banda
"Figuración"

(2017) - El Encuentro Editorial - Micheaux Editorial
Libro

Argentine - Book in Spanish - Format 17 x 11 cm. In printing paper with 132 black & white pages / coloured cover.

Almendra left its heavy footprint legacy, so that Rock music in Argentina could have its Experimental and Avant-Garde quota through the poetry of Luis Alberto Spinetta and the audacity of that legendary and mythical band, in order to lay the foundations for a new musical aesthetic and fusion that could only be carried forward by true pioneers and references who were in it for the long run. Short-lived, though intense (1968-1970), in 1979 Almendra came back and gifted us with a double live album, as well as a studio LP effort, culminating their story in the year 2009 with five songs played live-in-concert during the "Spinetta y sus bandas eternas" mega-show event, which remained as an everlasting worthy memory of those who boarded that train to the south.

APERITIVO SINFÓNICO - Miguel Ángel Dente | Daniel Esteban Ferrero Ver información de la banda
"Introducción al rock sinfónico en la Argentina"

(2021) - Ediciones Disconario
Libro

Argentine - Book in Spanish - Format 15 x 22 cm. In illustration opaque paper with 192 black & white pages / coloured cover.

This book is a substantial introduction for the rebuilding of a criminally neglected chapter within Argentine Rock history. This subgenre generally does not enjoy great relevance in local bibliographies. So, in some way, the authors have intended to shine some visibility on the Symphonic Progressive Rock movement, through 18 representative bands which had big or small impact, but all with great personalities, during the seventies and early eighties’ heyday. Beyond the bands’ individual biographies, the testimonies by some of the main protagonists in each group also stand out.

(2022) - Ediciones Disconario / VIAJERO INMÓVIL Records
Libro

Argentine - Book in Spanish - Format 23 x 15 cm. In illustration opaque paper with 283 black & white pages / coloured cover.

After Almendra's dissolvement, its members decided to take different routes: Luis Alberto Spinetta created Pescado Rabioso, Edelmiro Molinari joined Color Humano, while Emilio Del Guercio and Rodolfo García started a fresh musical career by forming Aquelarre, together with Hugo González Neira and Héctor Starc. It is the intention of all four authors of this book to chronologically tell the journey initiated by this essential, with its very own identity, Progressive Rock band. What we have here is a meticulous description of their discography and key concerts, in addition to the storytelling by its own protagonists and other sources. Also featured is a detailed and acute look by the Argentine Music Press, as well as from around the rest of the world.

Libro

Argentine - Book in Spanish - Format 24 x 16 cm. In illustration opaque paper with 256 black & white pages / coloured cover.

Official biography of the band Arco Iris, formed during the late '60s. It is the product of extensive research conducted by journalist Fabio Scartuchio, who together with the group, compiled in this comprehensively complete publication, the history, photos, testimonies of all members, their music and philosophy (which was extremely new for the time, as was vegetarianism), the practice of yoga, and community life. This pioneering Rock band’s protagonists tell us about their musical beginnings, anecdotes and intimacies of their shows and successes, such as “Mañana Campestre” (1971), which became an anthem for the youth of the seventies, and is considered to be hands down, one of Argentine Rock’s most popular classics.

BILLY BOND Y LA PESADA DEL ROCK AND ROLL - Ezequiel Ábalos Ver información de la banda
"Cada día somos más"

(2016) - El Encuentro Editorial - Micheaux Editorial
Libro

Argentine - Book in Spanish - Format 17 x 11 cm. In printing paper with 138 black & white pages / coloured cover.

Although "La Pesada del Rock and Roll" existed only between 1970-1974, its open band policy made it essential to help add to the growth of Rock in Argentina, not only because of the participation of Pappo, Luis Alberto Spinetta and the members of Manal (even though they had already split by then), but for what he represented ideologically with his "in-your-face" attitude of confronting authoritarianism during unstable political moments of the country, with repression and censorship carried out by de facto military governments, as well as the "democratically"-elected government of Juan Domingo Perón, which, when he died while still in office, continued in the same autocratic and brutal vein by his evil minister Jose López Rega, creator of the repressive Triple A paramilitary secret police cell. This research includes interviews with numerous musicians who were actually there.

However, this book deals with one of the aspects about which, paradoxically, not much has been written at all: his music.

(2015) - Ediciones Ruta 2
Libro

Argentine Book in Spanish - Format 30 x 20 cm. In illustration opaque paper with 345 black & white and coloured pages / black and white cover.

Los Xawks were a bunch of friends who met during the early years of high school. Soon after, they decided to form a band and play Rock music. It is by no means this chronicle's objective to become a history manual of the nineteen sixties, but to recount how the outfit's members developed during those heady days. Our goal is to show how they thought, what they did and the outcome of their recorded works: the songs, starting with all the ones that were recorded for the legendary Argentine Mandioca label, as well as those which as yet remain unreleased.

CRUCIS - Gustavo Bolasini / Felipe Abel Surkan Ver información de la banda
"Todo tiempo posible yo estaré con vos"

(2020) - VIAJERO INMÓVIL Records
Libro

The history of Crucis is just as rich as its music. Since they were very young, the band's members started on a trajectory, which after several years of enduring a perfectioning process, very suddenly enjoyed a place of preponderance. With only two albums to their name, Crucis managed to fill theaters and stadiums, something somewhat unusual within the Argentine Progressive / Symphonic Rock scene. The group's overwhelming, albeit brief journey, boasted a legion of loyal followers. For the writing of this book, the authors interviewed the musicians who were once part of Crucis, picking up quotes from third party interviews, as well as close friends, those responsible for different functions within the band's management, career, and timespans. Data was also sought from the general press and other relevant testimonies to the quartet's story. An arduous field work was carried out to compile all information, articles, publications, period interviews, graphic material, and other elements, all taken from available media. There is also an extensive musical analysis of the lads' entire musical output, numerous photos, posters, and other important references.

Argentine - Book in Spanish - Format 17 x 11 cm. In printing paper with 170 black & white pages / coloured cover.

When everything was nothing, the beginning was nothing. The history of Argentine Rock wasn’t born from nothing. Though it exists thanks to Rock & Roll, Jazz and Blues, it would not be the same without Tango or local Folk Music. With a prelude by Miguel Grimberg, this initiatory book tells the history of music on this continent, beginning with the African slaves’ arrival in 1500, their syncretism with European and native cultures, all the way until the first formative years of Argentine Rock, offering the necessary information to motivate the reading of the "Rock de Acá" Book Collection.

From the Melody Maker, The Wire, Spin, and Rolling Stone columns, as well as in all the books that he published, Simon Reynolds set himself to deconstruct Pop Music's discourse by submitting it to an ideological dissection, which had nevertheless not impeded him from abandoning his mundane pleasures. The language suspension of Noise, the oceanic-mystic regressions of Acid Rock, the preponderance of the timbre/chromatism/texture triad over and above the melody and the message in Post-Rock and Electronic Music, represent a Psychedelic continuum which traverses the history of Pop Music.

Under a very detailed compendium of chapters wrapped-up in many reflections and interviews, there is an evident effort in this book to understand these practices, speeches and sensitivities, by actually discussing them. In these necessary and essential pages, the gathering effects of the melancholic and sonorous sounds of the bellows, together with the Marshall Speakers' distortions, the other-worldly vocals of Luis Alberto Spinetta, the wine-flavoured voice of Roberto Goyeneche, the slap by Charles Baudelaire, lyrics that both denounce and help to fall in love, are all swirling in an endless, yet delightfully literary effect. In short, the whole traditional urban district with all its' typical successes, errors and contradictions. New extended edition.

They were first known as Los Wilds Cats back in 1963, in the image and likeness of local Argentine outfit Los Teen Tops. In 1965, with Litto Nebbia as their lead singer, they were re-baptized as Los Gatos Salvajes. With a more Beatlesque type-of-sound, they were hired by the television programme "Escala Musical" and recorded a long play featuring a collection of tracks penned by Nebbia himself. Finally, in 1967, Ciro Fogliatta and Litto, together with Alfredo Toht, Oscar Moro, and Kay Galiffi, reassembled the band and called themselves Los Gatos. This formation recorded the mythical "La Balsa" (by Litto Nebbia and Tanguito) and "Ayer nomás" (by Moris and Pipo Lernoud), a 45 RPM disc that became the founding iconic pillar of the Rock movement in Argentina. After recording 3 albums right up until their first separation, and with the addition of Pappo in 1969, they became the most perfect transition between sixties' Beat and early seventies' Rock.

The idea that seems to run through each page of Luisito Volume 2 is that the only thing comparable to listening to Spinetta is talking about him. Like a Spinettean alchemist, Kasparian does what’s needed to recover scattered fragments -seemingly connected by an invisible thread- of Luis Alberto Spinetta’s life & works, via statements by a wide range of beings who sometime and somewhere, crossed paths with Luis: in person, by phone, Zoom, or Whatsapp. Who cares?! Only 1 thing matters: talking about Spinetta.

It happened during the mid-sixties in the City of Buenos Aires' district of Barrio Norte, inside a basement locale known as "La Cueva de Pasarotus" (later to be known simply as "La Cueva", where several young people who had been born in the 1940's started to meet and converge, as they were commonly attracted by Jazz. They soon attempted to gradually change the musical trends of the joint towards Beat and Rock. Within this group of pioneers were Moris, Pajarito Zaguri, Sandro, Billy Bond, Pipo Lernoud, Tanguito, Litto Nebbia, and Javier Martínez, who gave birth to the idea of composing Rock and Blues songs sung in Spanish, to reflect the reality of what they were living through in their everyday lives, in a country ruled by a military regime. After participating in a musical experience with Moris in Villa Gesell and being part of La Banda de Gastón, in 1967, drummer and singer Javier Martinez met Claudio Gabis, the guitarist of Bubblin Awe, and Alejandro Medina, bass player with Los Seasons, with whom he formed Manal, the founding Rock band in Argentina.

"La vida es un encuentro"

(2017) - Editorial Aguilar
Libro

Argentine - Book in Spanish - Format 23 x 16 cm. In printing paper with 352 black & white pages / coloured cover.

Passionate and many times controversial, Litto Nebbia tells everything. It is now fifty years since "La balsa", and the Argentine Rock pioneer, it must be said, was the very first to have no prejudice whatsoever with any musical genre, by merging Rock with Jazz, Brazilian Popular Music, Folklore, Bolero, and encouraging uncharted, never-before-explored musical territories. As unclassifiable as its author, "Mi banda sonora" threads, just like a soundtrack should, varying scenes from his own life history, scenes from his abundant songs and albums, his friends, his favourite movies and composers, his endless tours, and his own personal opinions. And together with all of these, thousands of memoirs, dreams and passions turn this book into a labour of love that is well-projected and directed into the future.

Miguel, I do not know why I started thinking about him; could be that I did not have time to understand everything at the time; Miguel, a really fertile poet; he arrived with two songs he wrote all over again in order to live again, you left glory behind and gifted us with history through your gypsy compass; you took me by the hand to the small glory of playing with THE abuelo. Miguel, will we meet again? it's hard to know... If you had something to say you said it twice, and Miguel had a good fist, and he knew who to floor, who to gift, who to forget and live, and you taught us all a little sense of the Palermo Dancer's friendship, Miguel.

Argentine - Book in Spanish - Format 23 x 16 cm.  In printing paper with 184 black & white pages / coloured cover.

Miguel Cantilo occupies a privileged place among all the pioneers of Rock sung in Spanish. His emblematic compositions turned Miguel into one of the most important Argentine Rock songwriters. As it introduces the readers to previously unpublished texts showing the genesis of Cantilo's works, his big Pedro y Pablo success, the protagonist of Catalina Bahía, as well as exclusive autobiographical notes, this book is much more than a rigorous study of his lucid and exquisite oeuvre.

Argentine - Book in Spanish - Format 17 x 11 cm. In printing paper with 144 black & white pages / coloured cover.

This is a book inhabited by the very vivid and very real characters, who tell their own story. They are the real personages and places - La Cueva. La Perla. Villa Gesell - where what we know today as Rock de Acá (Rock from Here), was originally conceived. These protagonists, who were of course very young back in those formative years, remember with absolute detail all those mythological adventures. And together they build the story of Mauricio Birabent (Moris), the poet or prophet of that incredibly vibrant moment. Moris taught us to sing Rock in Spanish. To have a Rocker attitude and the necessary independence that any Rocker needs, to keep well away from all the powers-that-be, the police, the entertainment industry (which was corporately embodied back then in what was known as "Escala Musical"), and, alas, to keep a respectable distance from formal and polite education. In a nutshell, he taught us all how to think for ourselves.

Highly-talented, self-taught, seminal, and influential guitarist, who was influenced himself by the greatest earthling players in the business, who along with his lyrics and very particular, original and personal way of singing, set the precedent for Heavy Rock sung in Spanish.

Pedro y Pablo burst onto the Argentine Rock scene right at its genesis, contributing a disruptive look at Argentines’ daily lives, with "La marcha de la bronca", a song that marked the course of their extensive career. Miguel Cantilo’s sharp pen and Jorge Durietz’ harmonious presence were the ideal counterpoint with which they established an iconic acoustic and visceral sound that defined their first album in 1970.

This business of Post-War European and American societies is not only a behind-the-scenes backdrop, but the very principle that articulates the attempt to understand a broad and flexible set of musical manifestations, that would contribute to the metamorphosis of Pop (Rock?), which already accumulates six decades of accelerated evolution. From Doo Woop and the Fast Song to Krautrock and Swedish Prog, from Czechoslovakian Underground to Argentine Rock, from the European Free Jazz Improvisation to Post Industrial, from the British Counterculture to German Electronics, this compilation aims to trace a modest fresco -made of partial revelations of ephemeral triumphs and legendary failures-.

When everything was nothing, nothing was the beginning, but the history of "Rock de acá" is not born out of nothing; it exists thanks to Jazz, Blues and Rock & Roll, and it would not be the same without local Tango and Folk. This story begins long before "La Balsa", as part of a new generation of inspired young people born in the 1940's, who were connected with the international cultural and political movements of those times, and who helped to mold and change the way of Argentine people's thinking in general. Between 1992 and 2015, Ezequiel Abalos interviewed the pioneers of "Rock de acá", in order to unravel the true origins of Rock in Argentina. With Miguel Grinberg's prelude, this expanded reprint includes a CD with all of the book's interviews conducted with forty musicians and producers who were there.

Although this is the fourth book by Ezequiel Abalos chronicling the history of Rock in Argentina, it is the second in continuity with "Rock de acá - los primeros años" - and resumes the story in the year 1970, by telling it through the report and narration of relevant musicians up to 1975, including the separation that year of Sui Generis and the advent of a new coup d'etat in the country. The author spent twenty years accumulating notes and interviews for this research that actually proves its own veracity through the MP3 CD that accompanies this book, in which musicians recount the experiences they lived and reflect on a country plunged into confrontations and political discrepancies, and where Rock became a refuge and a trench in the face of the repression and violence being unleashed during those tumultuous times.

During the mid-sixties, the appropriation of Anglo-Saxon music consumption, combined with the sense of belonging to local roots, as well as the sociopolitical and cultural context of the country and the world as a whole, defined the patterns of a new musical expression genre. What has been contributed here in this book is a look to enrich what we call the History Of Argentine Rock, so as to discover previously inadvertent details, in order to rebuild environments and characters which are about to be swallowed up forever by the thunderous silence of memory loss. The musicians in question are: Rodolfo García, Emilio Del Guercio, Claudio Gabis, Willy Quiroga, Kubero Diaz, Black Amaya, Ciro Fogliatta, Héctor Starc, and Jorge Durietz, who provide a sincere, deep and experiential testimony about the emergence of Rock culture in Argentina.

Argentine - Book in Spanish - Format 23 x 15 cm. In printing paper with 136 black & white pages / coloured cover.

Luis Alberto Spinetta was much more than a Rock musician. It is very difficult to find negative commentaries or criticisms in reference to him as a person or his work, and he always obtained an enormous respect from the public, the press and his artistic peers, as if he were a special, almost sacred being. For many, he set some very high standards, in terms of the impeccably and professionally ethical ways in which he conducted himself as regards to all aspects of his personal life. This book on one hand maintains that Spinetta has been transformed into a mythical character by his very own audience. On the other hand, that part of the secret of his unique poetry and what it generates to us all lies in the construction -whether intentional or not- of a particular mythology that addresses existential questions and attempts to appease the real anguish generated by the separation between man and the cosmos.

Right after Almendra split in 1970, Luis Alberto Spinetta recorded songs for what would be: "Spinettalandia y sus amigos" and then ravels to Europe. On his return, he founded Pescado Rabioso and under that name, three albums were released: "Desatormentándonos", "Pescado 2" and "Artaud". In 1974, he formed Invisible and recorded three albums: "Invisible", "Durazno Sangrando" and "El jardín de los presentes." After recording "A 18' del sol" as a soloist and "Only Love Can Sustain" (in English in the US - also going solo), he successfully brought Almendra back together again in 1979, and in 1980, he formed Spinetta Jade. Credulity encompassed the prolific seventies' phase of this musician, poet, and artist, who with his talent and genius, gave credibility to Rock from here.

The lyrical density of Luis Alberto Spinetta's songbook contributed to him being considered as Argentina's Rock "poet." Is he really our national Rock poet? This book's pages delve into this idea with utter boldness. It offers a framework of reflection, analysis and comprehension for those who have enjoyed such poignancy, or those who have questioned it... they are about to either introduce themselves into this concept, or discover it. His expository track record exemplifies his songbook's interconnection, revealing itself as an organic whole. An adventure of thought on the lyrics bequeathed to us by such an incredibly original writer.

In the early nineties, somewhere in the burning Californian desert, a band called Kyuss led a move that originated a new musical genre that combined Heavy Rock and Psychedelia, with high levels of distortion, and which they baptized as "Stoner Rock." Meanwhile, at almost the very same time, in Buenos Aires, a group of musicians formed the band "Los Natas", who took that raw sound as a direct influence. They were the beacon of their generation: They encouraged many others to join this self-generated adventure, becoming one of the most famous groups in Argentina. This book tells how that seed, literally planted in the middle of the desert, flourished and bore fruit in our own territory.

On the afternoon of May 24, 1976, Argentine foursome Invisible entered the local CBS studios, located on Paraguay Street #1500 in downtown Buenos Aires, to record their third long player. By the end of that year, the group would cease to exist. If Invisible is perhaps the most valued band in Spinetta's career, "El jardín de los presentes" is the culminating point of a brief but intense discography work. In eight songs (many of them became local scene stalwart classics), Spinetta condenses a part of his cosmogony and lays the foundations for his immediate future as a solo artist, as well as fronting Spinetta Jade. Martín Graziano reconstructs with remarkable journalistic and music-loving expertise all the episodes that went through the gestation and impact of the appearance of this record at the end of 1976. A tiny but definitive period of time during which Luis Alberto Spinetta, Carlos Machi Rufino, Héctor Pomo Lorenzo, and Tomás Gubistch recorded a key album in the history of Argentine Popular Music from the last half century.

This second tome of the Social History of British Progressive Rock seeks to answer certain questions. Beginning with the transformation of the Folk Revival into Rock, it continues with the mechanisms that made a certain British-sounding Pop of the mid-sixties, The Beatles included, a force of immeasurable proportions. Along the way, the author rediscovers the forgotten traditions of Music Hall, Street Balladry, Pantomime, and Varieté, as well as the stubborn English urge to cling to whatever would be out of fashion. The book also convokes to a discussion between Modernity and Nostalgia, the terms of which, far from being opposite to one another, conspire to cook up the plot that will eventually weave into the style of posterior Progressive Rock.
