After having recommended them in five or seven groups, I thought I have to write a journal about them! Yes, Gazpacho is that kind of band, which absorbs you, triggering your impulse to do something about it. :)

I haven't been impressed by anything that much since a long time, besides maybe Chroma Key a few months back, but this recent experience turned out more intense for me.

You will be surprised when you read their bio, seeing that they are around since 1996. Luckily a tour with Marillion threw some light on them, but there are still only around 700 listeners on last.fm.

Their arrangements are so well-rounded, peppered with little surprises and professional... And then they have a wonderful vocalist, he's virtually melting with the music. :) His vocal is sometimes reminiscent of Morten Harket of a-ha. There is a very nice female vocalist from time to time - and her presence is certainly not cosmetic! :)

I simply can't grasp how they are still so "obscure". Ok, they aren't signed to any label (another miracle, given the quality of their work), but stil...

I especially enjoyed their debut album Bravo (1996) and their newest release Night (2007).

A lot of their tracks are fully streamable on last.fm, so don't let this one pass, go and check them out. You might also want to have a look at the last.fm fan group Gazpacho.

    Ok, instead of editing my error out I correct it here: I don't know where, but somehow I picked up the info that Bravo is from 1996... It is not. The group was established in 1996, but the debut album only came into being in 2003. Sorry for the msitake. On a side note, before the four albums there was a demo called Get it while it's cold (37C). Six of the seven tracks made it into Bravo, just no. 4, Delete Home didn't.

    I love them since the first song I heard "Upside Down". I am now listening to all their albums and the last one "Tick Tock" is absolutely incredible. Grabs you by the throat and lets you linger in bliss. Ah.
