[CP 163 CD] It; Viaje
In 1976 the fairly square “Movieplay S.A.” imprint (via their slightly hipper “Serie Gong”) quietly issued this monster of a live-electronic / psych-freakout opus (oddly, alongside canonic titles by Inti-Illimani, Victor Jara, et.al ... all considerably more “Inside”) by the then-unknown composers Eduardo Polonio & Horacio Vaggione, recording under the name It.
Predating the latter’s canonic Cramps-label debut “La Maquina Del Cantar” by a couple of years, this is miles away from the controlled generative transfixiations of said, instead figuring around the more iterative synthesizer, organ, guitar, and bass basheries laid down by the pair & post-processed heavily into something more in line w/ the best of Krautrock’s studio-excesses (Günter Schickert’s less rhythmically conservative work & the more outré Faust experiments come to mind, but there are also sections that are heavily reminiscent of Seeselberg, Anar Band, & even some of Schnitzler’s early solo outings) ...
Unbelievably great, one of the (unheralded) missing links in the Electronic-Psych canon, brought out into the open after remaining a (well-guarded, I’d literally never heard of this until now) secret. This Creel Pone Edition recreates the original edition's gatefold via a snazzy, linen-finish 6-panel booklet.
