Basque Hard-Prog Gem

With its interesting contrast between fuzzed-out electric guitar and clear,high flute,this nearly instrumental Basque album will appeal to many psych/prog fans.This quintet is perhaps one of the least “ethnic” sounding of Basque bands.Not much is known about the members of Lisker except for their sole legacy,a short (barely 35-minute) LP entitled “Lisker” released in 1979.The album has a rather open,spacey sound that should appeal to psychedelic and space-rock fans.The bright and melodic flute play is the true delight,here,contrasting with the rougher,bluesy guitar riffs while a muscular rhythm section tackles both even and odd-time signatures.You’ll hear a couple of folksy vocal ballads too (sung in Basque),but the crux of the album is basically a collection of hard-driving solos and some aggressive fuzzy guitar trading riffs with the flute – not at all similar to Jethro Tull,by the way.The guitar work is great:the acoustic guitar is beautiful,and the aggressive electric guitar is nicely offset by the flute.Vocals,which are in Basque,are decent and fit well into the framework of the music.

I bought Lisker some years ago from Megadenda, Basque region.. Is a very "strong" album, worth not only few listenings. Check out to find Haizea and Itoiz!!!
If not, i'll see what can i do
