Miguel Y El Comite - Para Hacer Musica. Para Hacer CD. El Syndikato made Miguel Livichich a rock star in South America; but it was his sole effort as Miguel y el Comité that made him a groove-loving crate-diggers dream! Livichich left El Syndikato, and in an instant, formed another band, joining forces with an existing group called Feeling Rock. This new group was called Miguel y el Comité (Miguel and the Committee)a clear allusion to Livichichs previous group (the Syndicate), and also a demonstration of his leadership role; even though Miguel y el Comité worked as a proper band in their structure, Miguel Livichich made all decisions concerning the group. As Livichich recalled, I told them, I want a band to join me, but we all work together... more rock and candombe and a few things more commercial. Accept, and we make a titanic effort. An aggressive launch. I do not lie, in fifteen days we were recording the LP. It was pin, pin and we were playing at all dances. It was amazing working with Miguel y el Comité. That band's 1971 album, with Livichich firmly at the helm, fused the local candombe rhythm with beat music in an unusual and aggressive (oft-times funky, break-beat) waythe nearest band in Uruguay to the unconventional excellence that was the brief career of El Kinto. Miguel y el Comité played mostly original songs, but they also mixed in covers of tracks by other Uruguayan bands. Percussion plays a key role in the bands sound, although the guitar playing is most distinctive: sometimes melodic, at other times carving a path through the mix, with a hard and acid distorted fuzz guitar sound, as on the title track and the fabulous cover of El Kinto's Qué me importa. Dynamite! Comes with a 28-page booklet, printed on FSC recycled, chlorine-free, 100% post-consumer fiber paper manufactured using biogas energy, with band history, photos, and bi-lingual lyrics.
