ALMAS DE DIAMANTE - E. Casali / L. Castro / M. Ceci Ver información de la banda
"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.

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.

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.

(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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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 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.

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.

"Mito y mitología"

(2017) - Gourmet Musical Ediciones
Libro

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.

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.

His closest still alive family members, other relatives, friends, and acquaintances, tell us who this mystical character, attractive to some and detested or forgotten by others, really was. He was originally part of a band known as Los Dukes and some time later launched his solo career. There is another side to these events, and they were recorded in this investigation which began in April 2008. They comprise the successive police arrests and testimonies obtained through Tanguito's complete clinical history while interned in the infamous mental asylum, the Borda Hospital in Buenos Aires, which for the first time is published in full, so that every reader may have the chance to draw their own conclusions on Tanguito, to whom so much is owed by Argentine society as a whole.

TIGRES EN LA LLUVIA - Martín Graziano Ver información de la banda
"La aventura de Invisible en El Jardín de los Presentes "

(2017) - Colección Vademécum
Libro

Argentine - Book in Spanish - Format 20 x 14 cm. In printing paper with 200 black & white pages -  illustration coloured paper / coloured cover.

En la tarde del 24 de mayo de 1976, el cuarteto Invisible ingresó a los estudios CBS de la calle Paraguay al 1500 para grabar su tercer long play. Hacia fin de año el grupo no existía más. Si Invisible es tal vez la banda más valorada en la carrera de Spinetta, “El jardín de los presentes” es su punto culminante de su breve pero intensa obra discografía. En ocho canciones (muchas de ellas devenidas en clásicos de la música local) Spinetta condensa una parte de su cosmogonía y sienta las bases de su futuro inmediato como solista y al frente de Jade.  Martín Graziano reconstruye con notable pericia periodística y melómana todos los episodios que atravesaron la gestación y el impacto de la aparición de “El jardín de los presentes” a fines de 1976. Un minúsculo pero definitivo período de tiempo en el que Luis Alberto Spinetta, Carlos Machi Rufino, Héctor Pomo Lorenzo y Tomás Gubistch grabaron y publicaron un disco clave para la música popular argentina del último medio siglo.

TU TIEMPO ES HOY - Julián Delgado Ver información de la banda
"Una historia de Almendra"

(2017) - Eterna Cadencia Editora
Libro

Argentine - Book in Spanish - Format 22 x 14 cm. In printing paper with 256 black & white pages / coloured cover.

Tu tiempo es hoy. (Your Time Is Today.) This publication not only tells the story of legendary Argentine Rock band Almendra as one of the key outfits that started the Argentine Rock era, but also tells the story of a time full of great hopes and convulsions, which the band themselves were able to to expose and depict in their own compositions. Julián Delgado passionately traverses the story of the group which existed between between 1968 and 1970, and comprised Luis Alberto Spinetta, Emilio Del Guercio, Edelmiro Molinari, and Rodolfo García. The book recounts Spinetta's early-attempted singing steps at the tender age of 14, his meeting-up with Del Guercio and the discovery of music as a place and space of rebellion against the conservatism of the scholastic institution of those times, a cultural uprising that later on, with the 1966 military coup d'état, would take on a larger political significance. Also covered and well-documented are the arrival of the Beatles on the scene, that new language that captured young people's imaginations, placing them right in the bull's eye center of the scene, and the appearance of Almendra, symbolized as a singular appropriation of that new musical language.

Argentin- Book in Spanish - Format 21 x 15 cm. in printing paper with 184 black & white / coloured cover & photos.

Between May and September of 2012 Rubens Vitale (Donvi) was interviewed by renowned Argentine Music Journalist Pablo Arias, with whom he shared the ideas which animated and impacted all of his existence as a political leader, trade unionist, point of reference in Argentina for the self-management of musical production, and professor. His project is to pour all of these experiences in a book aimed at the youth. Unfortunately he wasn't able to bring it to a conclusion, as he sadly passed away on October 27. Donvi was an excellent exhibitor, as well as a vast creator of ideas, and possessed a very particular method which combined timings, spaces, and collection of topics, that somehow all finally converged and combined together to flow into a central proposal.

Libro

Argentine - Book in Spanish - Format 23 x 15 cm. In printing paper with 352 black & white / coloured cover.

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.
