SURFIN’ BICHOS RETURN AFTER ALMOST THIRTY YEARS WITH “MÁQUINA QUE NO PARA”
“Máquina Que No Para” seems an invincible title for the return of Surfin’ Bichos from Sonido Muchacho and Virgin Music LAS Spain. In any case, the machine hibernates or is given over to other chores; but no, it doesn’t stop. The Albacete combo picks up where it left off: making relevant, sharp music, which leaves its mark. Rock with nineties roots, a forceful chorus and immediate hangover. They have always liked to say things clearly; also on this occasion, in which they use a self-referral text to explain why they are still in this business more than 30 years after starting their musical career.
If their previous works are considered masterpieces it is because we are talking about unique, special albums, in tune with their time but at the same time managing to project themselves into the future. Easy to say, exceedingly difficult to do. The classics are classics for a reason. It is because they never finish saying what they have to say. Their discourse changes, grows and evolves, establishing different dialogues with the present as time passes. That explains why the impact of the Surfin’s extends beyond 1994, the year in which the first stage of their adventure ends. It was the starting point for many things. It was also the starting point for other musical ensembles that have kept them busy over the years. Until now..
