1) Band was formed by the sitar/guitar player Gualberto in 1967. At the beginning of the seventies Smash recorded two albums for Philips label "Glorieta de los Lotos" in 1970 and "We Come To Smash This Time" in 1971. Unfortunately early death of the vocalist Julio Matito bring band to the end. Music which Smash create is compare to Moody Blues and Vanilla Fudge psychodelic mood. Through guitar style of Manuel Molina we hear evident flamenco touch, applying on traditional "palos" (tarantos).
There are several bands using this name: 1. Lithium was a Swedish electronic industrial band formed by Johnny Hagel(previously in bands like Tiamat and Sundown), and Carl Nilsson(previously in Moth). They released their album Cold in 2002 which met with moderate success and tours to follow, including performances at festivals like M'era Luna.
Work commenced in 2003 with a new album which was finished in 2004, but was never released due to problems with the record label, finally leading to the band being dropped altogether and disbanding shortly thereafter.
