And now introducing the record that was that was my tipping point.
How Do You Say Fuck You In Portuguese?
Anarqia! Oi! Oi!
I remember when I first dropped the needle on this baby a few years ago and being dumbfounded, confusing it first for Spanish "casteLLLLLano". It was extra fuzzy than other records and the voice tracks of most songs were not the strongest. But I didn't care, at first sound untuned beat, I knew this was the essence of classical punk. Raw.
All the songs are fast, the overdrive levels on guitar are to the highest treble and bass is barely audible. Most of the songs are not in sync, the drums are played so fast that the rest of the band can't even keep up with. There are plenty of fast breaks going in and out with slow breakdowns. In other words, fucken glorious.
Catchy tunes like "Anarquia" by Garotos Podres (Side Antes) emphasize reinforced use of sing- along chorus's and keeps your head bobbing with the harmonious use of a turvy diatonic harmonica. While songs like "Trabalhadores Brasileiros" by Espermogramix (Side Antes) even have an advanced intro of a pre-recorded alarm chiming before the heavy chords swoop in and take charge. And I swear, there is a song here somewhere that mentions Feijoada!
All in all, this is definitely in my top 3 at the moment and is as good as gold for me. I wouldn't trade it or sell it for anything.
