Nazca-st,LP,1985,Mexico

Legendary progressive ensemble from Mexico, formed by Decibel's multi instrumentalist Alejandro Sanchez , who were obviously influenced by Henry Cow and whose second lp was released by Recommended Records on album. This is their first album,privately issued. They used the aura & instrumentation of early Univers Zero (violin/viola, piano, oboe/bassoon, bass & drums) and came up with a sound that was influenced by 1313, but not as dark, more improvisationally based, and also uniquely their own. A minor classic of the RIO/neo-classical school.

This is actually their second LP - the picture is of the first LP, but the artwork and music are from the second LP -- very strange. Was this mis-linked?

Thank you for the quick fix. Both LPs are worth checking out for fans of UZ or Julverne, etc. EnVivo is excellent, as well.
