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.

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.

BLACK MUSIC - Leroi Jones (Amiri Baraka) Ver información de la banda

(2010) - Caja Negra Editora
Libro

Argentine - Book in Spanish - Format 20 x 14 cm. In printing paper with 224 black & white pages / coloured cover. Reedition in Spanish 2014.

This is a compilation which documents one of the most radical and savage music critic exercises that have ever been put into practice. Through these multiple essays, reviews, interviews, press releases for records, chronicles, and personal impressions published between 1959 & 1967, LeRoi Jones (Amiri Baraka) portrays the flourishing Free Jazz scene, a movement that implied a deepening of Bebop's sonorous innovations, as well as the recovery of Jazz as an authentic expression of Afro-American culture.

CHARLY EN EL PAÍS DE LAS ALEGORÍAS - Mara Favoretto Ver información de la banda
"Un viaje por las letras de Charly García "

(2013) - Gourmet Musical Ediciones
Libro

Argentine - Book in Spanish - Format 23 x 15 cm. in printing paper with 192 black & white pages / coloured cover.

The allegory destroys the expectations we have of words actually saying what they mean. Even though it has been studied in cinema, visual arts and literature, very few times has it been addressed in popular music. The works of Charly García, one of the most important representatives of Argentine and Latin American Rock history, constitute an unsurpassable way of understanding the many different ways of expressing ideas through songs' lyrics.

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.

DESPUÉS DEL ROCK - Simon Reynolds Ver información de la banda

Argentine - Book in Spanish - Format 20 x 14 cm. In printing paper with 224 black & white pages / coloured cover. Reedition in Spanish 2015.

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.

Libro

Argentine - Book in Spanish - Format 23 x 15 cm. In printing paper with 240 black & white pages.

During the winter of 1976, a few months after a new military coup d'etat, the city of Buenos Aires dawned one day to see its streets papered in ads heralding the arrival of a new magazine called "Expreso Imaginario." Founded by the renowned local journalists Jorge Pistocchi and Pipo Lernoud, "Expreso Imaginario" not only became a sort of haven if you will, but also laid the foundation for he nascent specialized journalism. The publishing of "Estación Imposible" is an excellent piece of bibliographic news for those who are interested in learning about the past of Argentine Rock, as well as the restless readers curious about the history of journalism in this blessed country.

At the end of the Second World War, West Germany was a country that was caught in a state of shock. However, the stimulation of the Psychedelic Revolution, the communal experiences of the sixties and the radicalized juvenile politics, provided the shaping for a unique chapter in the history of Contemporary Music: Krautrock. The influence of outfits such as Kraftwerk, Can, Faust, and Popol Vuh, as well as personalities such as Conny Plank, Manuel Göttsching or Klaus Schulze, is absolutely incalculable. They were key to the development of musical movements which range from Post-Punk, all the way to Techno and Ambient too.

The publication in 1957 of his classic book "On The Road" provided Jack Kerouac with a sudden fame, the administration of which would keep him busily occupied almost until his demise. A collateral effect of this vivid renown were the assignments he received from different magazines. The majority of the articles, essays and brief works of fiction included in this book, were originally published in magazines such as Esquire, Playboy, Evergreen Review, or Escapade.

This represents a reflexive approach to the history and present of Jazz in Argentina, through interviews held with musicians of different walks of life, generations and styles. The book tackles discussions that link popular music with processes of social significance, miscegenation and identity, without getting round to the recent debates held concerning local "Afro" culture and the spot it occupies in the so-called Black Atlantic.

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

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.

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.

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.

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

Luis Alberto Spinetta es mucho más que un músico de Rock. Es muy difícil encontrar comentarios o críticas negativas respecto a él o a su obra y siempre logró un enorme respeto del público, de la prensa y de otros artistas, como si se tratase de un ser especial, casi sagrado. Para muchos es palabra mayor como ejemplo de vida y de una ética personal y profesional intachable. En este libro se sostiene que, por un lado, Spinetta ha sido transformado en un mito por su audiencia; por otro, que parte del secreto de su poesía y lo que ella nos genera está en la construcción –adrede o no– de una mitología particular que aborda cuestiones existenciales e intenta aplacar la angustia generada por la separación entre el hombre y el cosmos.

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 author.

Los primeros pasos de Spinetta en el canto a los 14 años. El encuentro con Del Guercio y el descubrimiento de la música como lugar de rebeldía frente al conservadurismo de la institución escolar; una rebeldía que luego, con el golpe de Estado del 66, cobraría un significado político. La llegada de los Beatles, ese nuevo lenguaje que capturó a los jóvenes y los colocó en el centro de la escena. El surgimiento de Almendra como una apropiación singular de ese nuevo idioma musical.

Miguel Grinberg, music critic and poet, as well as a specialist in generational themes and counter-cultural movements, was able to nail down in the pages of Buenos Aires daily newspaper "La Opinión" a craftsmanship of untamed expression, with particular emphasis on the literary proposals of that specific period's Argentine Rock movement. Among many other issues, Seru Giran's debut, Almendra's reunion, the numerous Rock Festivals of those times, MIA's activities, Aquelarre's experiences, Luis Alberto Spinetta and León Gieco's adventures while abroad, etc, are magnificently covered in accurate detail-like manner.

Argentine - Book in Spanish - Format 23 x 15 cm. in printing paper with 400 black & white / coloured cover.

This first volume kicks off with the analysis of a couple of seminal records, which were released during the iconic 1967 "Summer of Love": "Sergeant Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band", by The Beatles and "The Piper at the Gates of Dawn", by Pink Floyd. The multiple transformations that Progressive Rock endured all the way until its' final decay and loss of influence, started with the transitioning years from Prog to Psychedelia (1967 / 1968). Through three extensive essays, the book approaches the stories behind some of the most important and definitive bands of the Progressive genre: Yes, Pink Floyd and Emerson, Lake and Palmer.

For many readers, Pipo Lernoud is the real ideologist behind Argentine Rock. He founded emblematic magazines depicting this movement, such as Expreso Imaginario, Canta Rock and La Mano. He was one of the pioneering forces behind Organic Agriculture and wandered dozens of stages, scenes and settings in order to recite his own poetic works. It is through his trove of diaries, letters, poems, songs, articles, and postings that "Yo no estoy aquí" reveals the embryonic origins and growing pains of the Alternative Culture: its' social and political coming of age from the sixties up to the present.
