Founded in Jerez de la Frontera, Spain, in the late 1990's - Hiatus between 2006-2012

EL TUBO ELÁSTICO is a quartet consisting of Carlos Cabrera (percussion), Alfonso Romero (bass), Daniel González (guitar) and Vizen Rivas (guitar). The band started with a combined passion for 70s paragons like Yes, Genesis, Camel, King Crimson, as well as local andalusian rock bands. Gradually their music incorporated new elements from other musical styles and the evolution of progressive rock itself, inspired by bands like Ozric Tentacles, Liquid Tension Experiment or Porcupine Tree. The fusion of these diverse styles is achieved through an open creative process of intense improvisations.

It was in the summer of 2012 when Alfonso Romero, a close friend who was always besides the band, replaced one of the original members, Alejandro Zenón, to become their new bassist. 2015 then saw the eponymous debut album to be ready. In 2018 the follower album 'Impala' could be released, showing an eclectic blend of post/math, fusion, funk and art rock.

El Tubo Elástico Post Rock/Math rock

Review by Rivertree

4 stars Funny band name! However, stylistically they are flexible definitely, no question. With the focus on dual guitar action and varied rhythm work, plus minimalistic keyboard respectively synthesizer attendance. Post/math bands often enough are sounding single tracked, when it comes to my taste, or are exaggerating their trickiness. Though here we have a well balanced relation of finesse and accessibility to state. The six songs are completely instrumental, furthermore also striving for an eclectic blend of quite different progressive rock moves.

So come what may, yet the opener Ingravido - a thriving affair - will hold you in place, I'm sure. Antiheroe then may top this due to a gripping flow, including acoustic guitar and repetitive keyboards. Hereafter I was caught ... overall the songs are provided with a proper, fusionesque, even partially funky groove. Impala Formidable - the title says it all - if I had to sum this up with a short header, 'King Crimson Go Space Rock', it would be. A passionate progressive rock fan should not miss that. 4.5 stars so far for this improvement.

3 stars Spanish band EL TUBO ELASTICO was originally formed back in the late 1990's as a cover band, gradually developing their own brand of progressive rock and then entering a state of hiatus in 2007 without ever releasing any official material. The band returned to action with a revised line-up in 2012, and in 2015 they self-released their self-titled debut album.

El Tubo Elastico have created their own small niche within the progressive rock universe with this self-titled and self-released debut album. Quirky and complex music is the name of the game here, and if you could imagine a math rock band having a go at the music of Ozric Tentacles or vice versa, then you won't be all that far off from imagining the sounds and atmospheres of this Spanish foursome. If that description comes across as alluring for you, then this is an album that you most likely should find to be a rewarding experience.

Thanks to rivertree for the artist addition. and to Quinino for the last updates
