Chico Magnetic Band’s eponymus album, released by French Vogue subsidiary Box Office label in 1971, defines the term “Heavy Psychedelia”. These bunch of freaks, leaded by Algerian born Mahmoud “Chico” Ayari were clearly influenced by The Jimi Hendrix Experience but somehow they created a song of their own: violent, trashy, stoned as hell heavy psych featuring demented vocals, furious guitars, loud rhythm section and mindblowing studio effects including phasing, backward tapes, weird & groovy electronics…Eight killer tracks including their insane fuzzed-out deconstruction of Hendrix “Crosstown Traffic” and cult classics like “Pop Pull Hair”, “Explosion”, “Pop Orbit”…
This reissue includes 8 bonus tracks (two more than the vinyl release) and features an insert with full band story and rare photos.
