LA MAQUINA DE HACER PAJAROS were found in mid-70's by ex-Sui Generis vocalist/keyboardist Charly Garcia after the disbanding of the later.Except Garcia,fellow Carlos Cutaia plays also a number of keyboards (moog synthesizer,piano,mellotron) to lead to the band's very rich sound,filled with different colours and moods.Their first LP was eponymous and released back in 1976,at a time when symphonic rock and jazz rock were at its pick in Argentina,with bands like CRUCIS,ARCO IRIS and M.I.A. leading the way.

''La Maquina de Hacer Pajaros'' contains it all and will leave every progressive rock fan pleased.Abandoning the folk side of Sui Generis,Garcia turned to the more complicated yet symphonic of progressive rock,mixed with pop,hard rock and South-American elements.There are definite influences by GENESIS (smooth acoustic guitars) and most obviously YES (keyboards acrobatics,sudden breaks and changing rhythms),but there is also some sort of Italian prog flavor in the multi-vocal poppish parts blended with acoustic guitars.At times guitarist Gustavo Bazterrica will rock you to the bone with hard rocking riffs,while a few nice instrumental parts are closer to funk and fusion music in the vein of WEATHER REPORT or RETURN TO FOREVER,led by Gracia's Fender Piano.Despite their short presence withinh the progressive rock circles,LA MAQUINA DE HACER PAJAROS left us some great music to remember and their debut should be another South-American great entry,if added in your collection.
