    There was a phenomenal live performance by them available on YT some time ago, but it's been removed since then. There's also an earlier demo, Live In the Basement or something, but I haven't heard it. Apparently there was also a set of unreleased recordings, some of which were rumoured to feature Pip P.
    Oh, that's bad news. Sorry to hear about Jardines. Thanks about the info anyway!

A very fine band but alas sadly overlooked - again.
    Agree w/you Richard!.

    With "Azufre" (2015), their last one, Akineton's sound changes mainly because they leave behind the "jazz-rock and avant-garde" a bit and present a new proposal focused on "afrobeat and calypso" or their daily musical environment; however, Akinetón Retard is always an interesting band to follow and explore IMO!.

    And talking about how to describe their music/universe, I like this one taken from their FB:

    - "Electroacoustic Avant-free rock fascist-communist spontaneous clowny ensemble" -.

    I've been listening to several singles that have been released before their next album and I'm interested enough.

    For example:
    - Abisinia:

    - Pausto:

    - Cielo Falso: (FEAT. GABRIEL CAÑAS/ ALFREDO TAUBER)
