3 stars Basque Psych/Folk-Rock group, active between mid- to late-70's.Members were Alfonso Guillok on bass/vocals, Gabi Agirregomezkorta and Txerra Gurrutxaga on electric guitars/vocals, Luis Diego on acoustic guitar and Endika Iriondo on drums.Their eponymous debut was released in 1976 on the Basque label IZ.

Without speaking the Basque dialect of course, but looking at the front cover, this Psychedelic Rock album had to contain strong political lyrics, as the letters of the band's name build the form of the Basque flag.The style on the opening tracks is Heavy Psychedelic Rock with fuzz guitars and interplays with the acoustic ones, while the vocal arrangements are simply excellent.Later on the Folk elements become more prominent with more space for acoustic passages and light use of percussions and flutes every now and then, but the electric guitars still deliver some decent solos and lead the way.Not much of a great music quality, but everything in ''Koska'' is played with heart, while the vocals seems to be the stronger point of the band.

A good album next to files like EIDER, ERROBI or MAGDALENA.Recommended, especially if you are already into the Basque Psych/Folk/Prog scene of the 70's.

Thanks to kev rowland for the artist addition.
