Along with Smash, Cerebrum or Pan & Regaliz, Catalan band MÀQUINA! were one the truly pioneers when talking about the underground Spanish psych-prog scene from the late 60s.
“Why?” was their debut album, originally released in 1970 on the Diábolo label and housed in a striking surreal sleeve designed by band member Jordi Batiste. English vocals, wicked acid fuzz-wah guitars, Hammond organ, flute…including the legendary self-titled track, 24 minutes (split in two parts) of wild psychedelic improvisation.
Featuring Josep Maria “Tapi” Vilaseca (later of Tapiman) on drums, Josep Maria París on fuzz guitar, Luigi Cabanach on wah guitar, Enric Herrera on organ and Jordi Batiste on bass/flute/vocals.
Highly sought-after by psych collectors worldwide, here’s a long overdue new vinyl reissue of this cult album featuring newly remastered sound, original artwork and insert with detailed liner notes and cool photos.
