Various - Andergraun Vibrations Vol. 2

"Anyone who checked out the first volume of Andergraun Vibrations (Hundergrum) will tell you that Spain was crawling with weird and wonderful small-label heavy rock recordings during the early 70s. And if you thought that stunning comp was the last word on the subject, well, the second volume presents even more ludicrously dope psych and garage pounders from limited-run sevens by the likes of Ciclón , Skorpis , Chirino , Katunga and Piñonate . I'm particularly partial to the Albert Band 's funky Ella Tiene El Cabello Rubio, but I have to give it up to Franklin for the trippiest version of the Rolling Stones' Satisfaction ever waxed by humans."

"After the great success of the first volume, we come with another killer selection featuring more Spanish heavy psych insanity. Ten tracks taken from super rare 45s by Spanish bands and even some obscure South American singers/groups who recorded in Spain at the time. Highlights are underground hard-rock band Ciclón with their monster rare (only 3 known copies) private pressing 45 which was recorded in 1978 but sounds totally 1970-71, a five minute deconstruction of '(I can't get no) Satisfaction' by prog band/commune Franklin, trashy hard-rock by Albert Band, Luis Queimada and Argentinian band Katunga, tremendous psychedelic hard rock loaded with trippy effects by Cuban born musician Chirino, wild female hippie sounds by Norah, ripping fuzz-wah insanity by unknown band Piñonate, haunting prog rock by Skorpis...Housed in a beautiful sleeve, if features professional remastered sound and contains an insert with detailed liner notes about each band in English/Spanish and lot of pictures, most of them never before published."
