thee butchers orchestra is a band from sao paulo, i'm sure they play in rio occasionally. they've got stuff on estrus and other labels. kinda spencerish at times, sometimes more MC5. pretty good. if nothing else, maybe they play at some clubs where you can get connected with some bands or people in the know.

another rock n roll band from sao paulo, looks like: Bionica.


anybody else have any leads for scott?

Is that Brazil, I'd try to check out Titas if they're still around.

I actually have a MRR Brazilian scene report from like 95 rounds about....I don't know if that would help.

Why would anybody waste thier time in Brazil with rocknroll and punk anyway when there's so much good Bosa Nova....just the traditional shit thow, fuck all that midi contemporary crap.

I read a paper a couple semester ago on the stratification of culture in Brazil and how is correlates to their music...The point was that the elite's listen to Bosa Nova, and that's considered the true music of Brazil...but the music most of the common folk listen too, "Carnivale"(?) is conisdered a bastard kind of music...but in actuality, Bosa Nova only first realy came about in the 50's under the influence of American R&B...and Carnivale, actually incorporates a lot more indigenous influences, like the indian drums and crap.....So basically is just shows how the rich manipulate culture in a way to seem more legitement and worthy....and also so Brazil is so influenced by American Culture also, because we're the biggest rich assholes around.

thanks for the tips. ive already made some headway through a local record shop via nofunrecords. thee butchers... and bionica apparently dont keep up with the website or dont play many shows. but it seems, and im told, that sao paulo is more the place for what im looking for. as for the bossanova, forget about it. ive seen the bossanova joints around town and kept right on walking. looks comparable to a night out at some uptown jazz club. and as for the traditional bossanova it went out with the 50s, however vinyl lives on and, because not considered...eclectic like in the states, is very inexpensive. ill be seeing rita lee (mutantes) in january. her new music is not so great, but still a mutant.

ack! i just bit into a bone in my bologna. really.

anyway, here's some more hot ex-tropicalia's to check out if they're playing for free at copacabana or whatever:

caetano veloso, gilberto gil, gal costa, and the stevie wonder of the bunch, jorge ben jor (formerly known as jorge ben- africa brazil is freakin great).

If you happen to hear of a Soca band coming threw in Rio named "Jab Jab"-Please go see them. Bring me a CD too. It is more of an islanders' music but I bet they would tour there. Have you seen that Simpsons episode where Lisa tries to find a lost Boy in Rio and Homer gets abucted by a cab driver? Have you done any Booty Dancing?
Posted: Dec 21, 2003 1:46 pm
ill be seeing gilberto gil over the holidays i believe. think he is playing a free show on the beach during new years eve party. one of many to perform a short set on the same stage. that night will be insane. ive not seen that simpsons episode and am sickened by the fact that they dont air them here. must be one of maybe 10 simpsonless countries in the world. booty dancing...yes i must confess, but the girls dont quite get into it as in the states. and the cab abductions you speak of is no laughing matter. quite common. you have to know where you are and how to get where you want to go or else dont get in. because many gringos hop in drunk and just ride along having no idea where they are being taken. they tell me that if a cab starts to head towards a favela you better jump out the window and run like hell. past dark, an american who enters will not make his way out. thats understood.

This is funny...apparently Titas started out as a punk band, and metamorphed into a pop band...

Here's thier guitarist's webpage. http://www2.uol.com.br/sergiobritto/ ..it reminds me of Nick Lowe...but what's Nick Lowe without the tongue and cheek lyrics? Still I got this link, from a punk web page.

In any foriegn country Americans need to be carefull....You need to know where your taxi is going to take you in New York City or Memphis....I have an uncle in Iraq right now...I lived in Panama for 3 and a half years and had to leave on account of the Panama invasion....It's just a matter of common sense...Americans just think they rule the world.

As far as there being no more traditional Bossa Nova...all Bossa Nova ever was was jazz combined with the simplicity of R&B....emphasizing cool over all else...a characteristic of American underclasses and Brazilian overclasses, as influenced by U.S. underclass art, like jazz and Motown (at least at one time)....my teacher was a pretty cool guy...he played us some contemporary Bossa Nova, and it sounded like far out midi psychadelia, with alot of Beatles influence....it was so show how much impact America has on other nations....He said "I don't know why they've incorporated so much Beatles influence" and I bloated out, "Maybe Cuz they're on acid"....But the point is that Bossa Nova has always been about cool and jazz, and it's victim to the digital midi craze just like american jazz...but I'm sure you can still find traditionalists if you search them out....but if your not into Jazz clubs I wouldn't bother.

I should give props to Herbie Mann too...I own more Bosa Nova than I thought.

I guess because it tends to be a thrift store standard.

I have the two albums on the right here...and the one on the far right is by far thier best that I've ever heard...I liked it when I was a kid because it reminded me of music from Pulp Fiction (same reason I got into Afrocuban)....the one in the middle is kind of Bossa Nova cheesy but still good....If you see next time you're thifting pick them up.

There's a woman from Brazil, Saissa, who posts at the garagepunk.com forums. She's from Abobora maybe, maybe that's a joke. Claims there's only 12 people in the country who even know who the NBTs are...
Posted: Dec 23, 2003 2:38 am
are the Sell Outs still around? they are(were?) from Brazil and put out some records on rapid pulse and a great 10 inch on ken rock i think. theyre great rip off style punk(and better than a lot of the bands on that label). havent heard anything from em in a while.
