Anyone know much about them? I've just bought a 'best of' for a couple of quid
part of the Tropicalia movement from Brazil, there'll be a good bio somewhere...
if it's the best-of on Luaka Bop Records it's not the best start though...
better to get their first two albums i think.
you should definitely investigate the other Tropicalia acts if you like them: Caetano Veloso & Gal Costa are fantastic too.
there's a big exhibition on this stuff at the Barbican at the moment, i'm seeing Gal Costa play there on the 28th.
and it is the Luaka Bop best of. Still, it was only 2 quid
some of the versions on that CD are a bit rough though.
their 'classics' are "A Minha Menina", "Panis Et Cirenses" and "Ando Meio Desligado" but they are just the tip of the iceberg... i'm fairly sure "A Minha Menina" was used in an advert a while back.
They made an English language album in 1970 that didn't get released for 30 years and it's largely english versions of their hits... in the same vein as Abbey Road really whereas most early stuff is a bit fuzzier.
who told you that?
This reminds me of that quote from Peel where he thought that MES killed all the ex members of the Fall as they all seem to disappear.
now she does a chat show in Brazil or something.
which is why she's not playing the reunion gig at the barbican next month.
SHE'S NOT DEAD - imagine if she'd read this? WHAT THEN? You're so inconsiderate, Robyn.
