Mexican Psychedelic Rock/Pop: The Spiders - Back 1970 (2000 La Ciruela Electrica)

The Spiders were a Mexican rock group that hailed from the city of Guadalajara and recorded in the 1970s. The band’s sound assimilated the psychedelic sounds that were in vogue at the close of the 1960s. One of the band’s early singles, “Back,” ranked among the most-played tracks on Mexican radio in 1970. The band went on to release three albums in the 1970s, in addition an EP and various singles. 1993 saw the release of a live reunion album. In retrospect, the band has been described as one of the key bands in Avandaro-era Mexican rock.(Discogs)

The band does not come from the garage rock genre like many South American bands from that time back then but can be clearly assigned to psychedelic rock. The band plays mainly songs with guitar and organ in the foreground. Songs like ''I'm A Man'' ''Something i heard'' and ''Now'' have a more Pop rock/latin background and are also highlights of the album for me. But the whole album is convincing, also because it doesn't drift into Prog Rock. A very good album.(Frank)
