This is a real oddity that I stumbled on the other day. Chico Magnetic Band was a psychedelic rock band that incorporated considerable elements to the hard rock of their era. They're real hard to pigeonhole though as they get rather far out. Formed in 1969 in France being called Chico & the Slow Death originally. In 1971 they released their only LP, which was limited to France alone from what I gather. Of course, with the passage of time people recognize brilliance and that is a good a word as any to describe the loud and impressive sounds of this band. The range encompassed by the song without changing the mood is great, with heavy rock freak-outs and spacey meanderings and dreamy guitar picking often all mixed up on the same track. Now normally I don't include pictures beyond the album art, but when I downloaded it had with it some righteous shots of the band that I feel compelled to post here as well.
