Chico Magnetic Band, France


Chico Magnetic Band - s/t. 1970 Vogue.

Tremendous freaked out psychedelic rock album from France.

Our review is HERE.

Only boots exist unfortunately. So there's an interesting reissue of this that came out in 2008 on the Nosmoke label from Portugal. Imagine my surprise when I saw the back liner notes... which were written by.... ME! (what did they use for the liner notes you ask? What you see if you follow the link above). Guess we can safely assume this is a bootleg as well, since I certainly wasn't contacted prior! It's a pretty decent boot actually, with extra tracks taken from 45s and Ep's, also from the bootleggers collection no doubt. There's also a full history of the band, up through 2003, probably pulled from the net as well. The sound quality is pretty good, a vinyl copy no-noised to death. So we'll keep waiting for a legit press. Since I don't have the original, this will have to suffice until then unfortunately. Too great an album not to own at all.

Priority: 1
