Musica d'Repuesto biography
MUSICA D'REPUESTO were a very rare and obscure Cuban progressive rock band formed in early 1990s by Lino GARCIA (bass, voices, keyboards, drums), Orlando 'Landi' BERNAL (guitars, keyboards), and Pedro Pablo PEDROSO (violin, cello, keyboards). It's said this three-piece outfit might make some sessions in Havana almost in 1993 for their debut album 'aV abuC', that finally could be released in 1998 via a Mexican label Luna Negra.

Today Landi lives in Canaries, Pedro in Buenos Aires, and Lino in Madrid. All of three talented Cuban players have been active as solo artists ... sometimes collaborate with each other.

2 stars MUSICA D'REPUESTO can be called as another Rock Progresivo Cubano. As you may know, one of the most important Cuban progressive rock bands is Sintesis (only in their early days) or Anima Mundi, and let me say that MUSICA D'REPUESTO may be on a par with the other two for progressive texture of the content. Regardless of social circumstance before Cold War finished in Cuba, their music attitude and policy for progressiveness can be loudly applauded by all proggers.

Anyway, their sound essence is, as it is said, as though Discipline Crimson meets RIO. Honestly, we cannot find something novel in their style ... this tendency can be sounded from the beginning - the first track "Parche", with complex rhythms, heavy & sticky riffs, a bit metallic guitar solo, and dreamy but weird programming sounds. Just the same phenomenon can be via the seventh "Anunciacion Y Danza D'los Cordoros". Always suggest Pedro Pablo's violin solo might mimic David Cross' one, but could invite not fuzziness nor sharpness but whacked-out drunken drive (Yeah I love this poverty sorry). The short second track "La Cabeza, Cto + Roja, + Verda La Jaqueca" has a very impressive brilliant and keen-spindled electric piano solo, with something jazzy around it. One of the most problematic (controversial) track may be "La Tristeza Es Una Enfermedad D'transmision Sexual" methinks - weirdly freaked-out electric tones (noises?) can be annoying for some listeners, and the hopping delightful electric piano solo can be very fascinating for other - a difficult one, maybe.

On the contrary, "Suite #3" is a fantastic psychedelia. With exotic, ethnic, and esoteric atmosphere we can be veiled completely. Slightly Krautrock-ish flavour in such a cold-cold heart we can taste in "Hierba Maia", under so painful electricity. Air can be altered quickly, in the eighth "Baile D'payasos" is an obvious Symphonic theatre ... one of the most terrific songs in their work, not avantgarde though. "aV abuC" is a reverse back of the recorded tape, it's a giveaway, funny one.

In conclusion, they could not do anything Neues, but I consider there should be lots of fans for them and only one creation by Cuban gang ... Me too!

Thanks to DamoXt7942 for the artist addition.
