Psiglo


Hailing from Uruguay, PSIGLO were formed in 1968 by Luis Cesio, Jorge García Banegas, César Rechac, Julio Dallier and Carmelo Albano. Jorge proposed the name "Psiglo" by joining the word "siglo"(century) with the first letter of psychedelic, because he said they were hanging around in the psychedelic era. With an above average production level, their albums were indisputably strong, supported by the Vincent Crane/Jon Lord style of Hammond organ and the decisive Deep Purple guitar style.

Hailing from Uruguay, PSIGLO were formed in 1968 by Luis Cesio, Jorge García Banegas, César Rechac, Julio Dallier and Carmelo Albano. Jorge proposed the name "Psiglo" by joining the word "siglo"(century) with the first letter of psychedelic, because he said they were hanging around in the psychedelic era. With an above average production level, their albums were indisputably strong, supported by the Vincent Crane/Jon Lord style of Hammond organ and the decisive Deep Purple guitar style. In 1973, with Ruben Melogno on the vocal duties, Gonzalo Farrugia on the drums, Luis Cesio on the guitar, César Rechac on the bass and Jorge García on the keyboards, PSIGLO managed to release their debut, "Ideación", and achieve the first 'gold' status ever in Uruguay rock history. Then they started enjoying a sort of "stardom", though it wouldn't last long, since the lyrics started to have more of a political slant against the state of affairs in Uruguay - which delayed the release of their second and last album, "Psiglo II", issued in 1981.

"Psiglo II" showed a more mature band, showing their most Progressive efforts, with switch line-up changes as César Rechac moving to guitars and Gustavo Mamut Muñoz replacing Cesar on bass. "Psiglo II", however, was not as successful as "Ideación" had been. Moreover, the musicians had already chosen to leave the country following the military coup of June 1973. Gonzalo Farrugia would later join Argentine Prog band CRUCIS, Jorge García Banegas would join ASFALTO from Spain, and Hermes Calabria would join BARON ROJO, also from Spain. PSIGLO are one of the most important bands in the history of South American rock, and an interesting example of early Heavy Prog.
