The OM first appeared on the scene in 1970, particularly in the Show "Toxic and Electric horn 6" with Toti Soler, Josep Polo Montaberry and Doro. They recorded two singles for Edigsa (Vindra the Llum) and sang a theme (Waiting of Godot). In May 1971 they recorded their first single and album namesake Edigsa. In late 1971 they began to record an album titled "Death of Butterfly". In 1972, after a brief reappearance, the group separates and Jordi Toti Soler recorded a solo album in July 1973 entitled "Gat blanc" which reflects his inclination to the Flemish and the use of the guitar espanola.

Excellent guitar driven jazz rock on this album!! Sometimes a bit mellow and Miles Davis-like, sometimes more rocking. The instrumental performances are way above average, and even the occasional vocals are good. The last track, called "Waiting of Godot" is perhaps a bit unnecessary, since it's a bit too easy going, but overall a very much recommended album, for the lovers of jazz, instrumental music, and guitar rock.
