"Una historia social del Rock Progresivo Británico - Tomo 2: transiciones de la Psicodelia"

(2022) - Gourmet Musical Ediciones
Libro

Argentine - Book in Spanish - Format 23 x 15 cm. In printing paper with 480 black & white / coloured cover.

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.

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 order to compile the story of a band, there is nothing better than telling it through the narration of its' protagonists; especially if that band is Vox Dei, who, right from their inception, made it very clear that they were coming to make history in the Argentine Rock Music scene. Thanks to the outfit's first album, "Caliente", and the conceptual work based on the Bible, "La Biblia según Vox Dei", the band helped Argentine Rock gain universal membership, appeal and credibility. As Rock and Blues cultists, they created true Rock Anthems, which today are worshiped and re-covered by the new generations.

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-.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
