The posts are few and far between these days. I do apologize, but I've been busy acquiring some really great and rare records in recent months, so make sure and check back from time to time, as I do intend to upload and post them!

Let's get back to it with an EP I grabbed at the MRR/Thrillhouse?Prank Record Swap last weekend in SF. Nowadays it's easy to make a raw noisy punk record. Most punx have access to recording equipment, distortion and fuzz boxes, shoestrings, etc. Many friends love this new era of raw noise punk, but I often find it to be boring, unoriginal, and unimaginative. This 1982 demo session from Brazil's is a different type of monster: a result of their only resources scraped together with their enraged no-frills hardcore attack pumped through the machine. A furious, ugly, and honest snapshot of the early days. Hear the hooks? They are there too. Neck and neck with OLHO SECO for most brutal Brazilian punk recording from the early 80s, and a rare exception to my dedication to music not noize!
