Led by guitarist and lyricist Luis Alberto Spinetta, between 1968 and 1971 Almendra released a few singles and two albums that revolutionized the sound of local rock music and how it was perceived by critics and audiences. Almendra did not survive the 1960s and their "difficult second album," though all the individual members including Edelmiro Molinari (guitar), Emilio del Guercio (bass), and Rodolfo Garcia (drums) went on to form the backbone of Argentinean rock in the 1970s.

He discusses what anarchism means in the workshop, the freedom for workers to own tools in the guilds of the 17th and 18th century, and the relationship between conflict, furniture and modernism, from the Campaign furniture of the British Empire to the Utility furniture of post-war Britain.
