Founded by Jordi Batiste (bass, flute), Enric Herrera (organ), Lluís "Luigi" Cabanach (guitar), and Santiago "Jackie" García Cortés (drums) as Sisa's backing band, "Máquina!" is maybe the very first underground rock group to have recorded in Franco’s Spain, their first single dating back to early 69. Their first LP on 1970 had striking artwork depicting a clock coming out from a croissant, meaning that it was time to wake-up in Spain: The album was called "Why? Máquina!" and it was clearly so rebellious under a dictatorship that fellow group "Tapimán" (founded by ex-Máquina drummer J. Mª Vilaseca, "Tapi", and Barcelona crosstown rivals/friends) answered them with a track called "Don’t Ask Why". The five-piece group developed a high-energy Hammond-driven psych/prog rock with two lead guitarists, with many extraordinary musical moments given the context of those years. Two years later, the band recorded with a different line-up (both guitarists having left, and including Carles Benavent on bass).

It was a live album with a much different bluesier sound complete with a brass section (and almost all new material) reminiscent of Chicago Transit Authority. Màquina!
