Smoking the Century Away - s/t. 1997 Mexico

There was a time in the late 1990s when the Smogless label was Mexico City's response to, and admiration of, the 70s Kosmische Kourier movement. Loch Ness, Humus, and Frolic Froth were the most known of these groups, but there were a few other random kollektiv's, and one of those was Smoking the Century Away. This "brand name", as it were, was their outlet for more organic psychedelic music and wasn't as fuzz guitar focused as the 3 groups mentioned above. Sort of a drifting, primitive sound (especially the keyboards), as one might find on an Amon Duul II side long excursion. This album is made up of one track, broken up into 19 vignettes. Yet another late 90's band that is long forgotten today, and still awaits their true discovery.
