LP Bio (Groups / Artist)

One of the remarkable factors in Brazilian music during the early 70’s was the experimentalism. The lack and inversion of rules and as well as the freedom’s idealism echoed from Europe and the United States and entered in Brazil. Here we see this factor in bands that appeared between the end of the 60’s and the first years of the 70’s. Bands consolidated in Rio De Janeiro; influenced by the “carioca” way, some jazz sources and by the psychedelic rock.

In 1971 the Odeon launched a collective LP, “Posições“ (Positions), with four new bands. One Som Imaginario (Imaginary Sound) was not unknown (with one record from the last year); the others A Tribo (The Tribe) , Equipe Mercado (Market Team) and Modulo 1000 (Module 1000) were pretty new bands, and from this record didn’t get so far, as bands. As musicians many of the participants of the bands, mostly from A Tribo and Som Imaginario, became very famous, with long-term carriers.

A TRIBO (1971)

A Tribo was a band formed by beginning young musician’s : the Carioca singer Joyce, the violinist Nelson Angelo and the guitarist Toninho Horta from Minas Gerais , the bass player Novelli and the percussionist Naná Vasconcelos from Pernambuco. Nana and Nelson Angelo were playing in the Free Quarteto, a mix of Bossa Nova and Jazz quartet. In 1970, the two musicians joined the Luiz Eça and Sagrada Family band. There they met the singer Joyce.  Nana, Nelson and Joyce called Toninho Hortaand Novelli and formed the Tribe (A Tribo).  Together they made some compositions of they own and played covers from Milton Nascimento and Danilo Caymmi.  In 70 they were at the V International Festival of the Song with “Onoceonoekoto” (Nelson Angelo).  The same year they participated in the collective “Posições” and also recorded a Compact Disc.  The sound from A Tribo is very interesting.  It discloses the symbiosis of rising talents with the voice of Joyce, Novelli’s bass, the arrangements of Nelson Angelo, the guitar of Toninho Horta and the creativity and improvisation of Naná Vasconcelos, who after some months left the band for a solo career.  Nenê replaced him.  However the band did not last very much beyond 1972, but all the band’s participants had a very successful carreer after that.


EQUIPE MERCADO was a band created in Rio de Janeiro during 1970. The band had a very creative and illustrious singer, Diana, allied with the songwriter Stul (guitar, piano and voice); Leugruber (guitar), Ricardo Ginsburg (guitar), Carlos Graça (battery) and Ronaldo Periassu (percussion).  The band was influenced greatly by psychedelic rock, but it also abided by the Brazilian melodic lyricism.  Beyond the participation in the collective “Posições” the group released a compact with the music: “Campos de Arroz” and “Side b rock” in the same year.  The band ended the same year.  In 1972 Diana and Stul launched another compact disc, presenting themselves as a couple, but, unfortunately they didn’t record anything else.

MODULO 1000 (1971)

MODULO 1000 was a quartet formed by Daniel (guitar and vocals, Luis Pablo (guitar), Eduardo(bass), Candinho (battery) in Rio De Janeiro in 69′.  Dispite its short duration it left a great influence for the progressive rock bands that were to follow.  Modulo 1000 mixed blues, rock and a touch of ballad.  The participation of the band in the “V International Festival of the Song” culminated with a compact launched by Odeon with: “Big Mamma” and “Isto Não Quer Dizer Nada”.  Still in 70′ they would participated in the collective “Posições”.  In 72′, they launched the only LP of the history of the band, the cult: “Não Fale Com as Paredes “ (“Do not speak with the Walls”).


In 1971 SOM IMAGINARIO debuted a new record, without the singer and pianist Zé Rodrix that followed to play with Sá and Guarabira.  As well as the previous record (commented in the Saudosas Bolachas/1970) it was directed by Zé Rodrix, in this new one was directed by the Frederiko.  The guitarist occupies this rank and so, the record is presents much more dense and radical that the first one; and the most anarchical possible. At this time, the record does not give many concessions commercial standards. The record opts to a sonorous radicalization.  Breaking for dissonance and hardcore.  The record has the preciosity of Wagner Tiso keyboard , Luiz Alves (bass), Robertinho Silva (battery), Frederiko (guitar) and Tavito (guitar).  From this record “Som Imaginario” (1971) Odeon Records used the song: “Nova Estrela” (Wagner Tiso/Frederyko) to place in the collective “Posições”.

Os Mutantes were formed in São Paulo, Brazil, in 1966 by 2 brothers Arnaldo Baptista (bass, keyboards and vocals) and Sérgio Dias Baptista (guitar and vocals) and lead singer Rita Lee, originally named Six Sided Rockers.  The Baptistas’ father was a poet and mother a pianist, and the two had previously had a band called The Wooden Faces. Their current name was settled upon immediately before a performance on a Brazilian television program.
Through other TV performances, the band was able to meet Gilberto Gil, an influential musician in the Tropicália movement, who brought them into the movement’s circle.  Os Mutantes released two albums heavily influenced by Tropicália, which blended psychedelic rock with other forms of art. They played with many artists of this period, including Caetano Veloso and Gilberto Gil, prior to their arrest and subsequent exile. During the 1960s, Os Mutantes was threatened by the military government of Brazil of that time.  In 1971, bassist Arnolpho Lima Filho (“Liminha”) and drummer Ronaldo Leme (“Dinho”) officially joined the band. They released five albums together before Lee departed in 1972 to start a solo career.  Subsequently the band moved in a progressive rock direction with the album O A e o Z, recorded in 1973 but released only in 1992 due to disagreement with the record company. Arnaldo left the band in that year to pursue a solo career due to differences with other band members and problems with the abuse of LSD, followed by Dinho and, a year later, Liminha. Arnaldo subsequently was institutionalized and jumped from the building’s window, causing a six-week coma.  Sérgio Dias, the only remaining original member, led the band until its dissolution in 1978. During this time, they released three more albums. Two unreleased albums were released many years later, the aforementioned O A e o Z and Tecnicolor recorded in 1970 and released in 2000.

When Os Mutantes was formed, it combined influences from the English-speaking psychedelic acts like The Beatles and Jimi Hendrix with the sounds of bands like Sly & the Family Stone.  Although they met with limited success in their own time, Os Mutantes also influenced a great number of Brazilian bands such as Pato Fu, Júpiter Maçã and Sepultura, who recorded a cover of the song “A Hora E A Vez Do Cabelo Nascer”. In addition, many contemporary underground or independent bands in the United States and Europe cite Os Mutantes as a major influence. Kurt Cobain publicly requested a reunion tour from the trio in 1993, writing a letter to Arnaldo Baptista. Cobain was introduced to them by Pat Fear from White Flag (whose collaboration with Redd Kross and other friends under the name The Tater Totz was the first American band to cover or even cite Os Mutantes on their 1988 LP Alien Sleestaks from Brazil). Beck paid tribute to the group with his single “Tropicália” from the album Mutations. The Bees (UK band) covered “A Minha Menina” on their first album, Sunshine Hit Me. Kevin Barnes of of Montreal cites Os Mutantes as an important influence. Talking Heads frontman David Byrne has worked to publish and promote the group’s music through his Luaka Bop label.

2006 reunion
Os Mutantes (Arnaldo, Sérgio and Dinho, sans Rita Lee and Liminha—Lee was replaced with Zélia Duncan on vocals) played live for the first time since 1978 at the Tropicalia exhibition at London’s Barbican Arts Centre on May 22, 2006. This performance was followed by shows in New York City, Los Angeles (with the Flaming Lips), San Francisco, Seattle, Denver, Chicago, and Miami.
They have also collaborated with British DJ JD Twitch, in a Britain/Brazil culture project in 2007, called Trocabrahma. In September 2007, both Arnaldo Baptista and Zélia Duncan left the band. Both expressed wishes to continue with their respective solo projects. Sérgio Dias, however, vowed to keep the reformed band alive, not wanting to let “the giant sleep again”, as he put it.
In November, it was reported that Liminha would return to the fold, while Karina Zeviani was said to replace Duncan as the band’s female vocalist. However, this formation never happened. Sérgio Dias announced in late 2007 the recording of a new studio album, with some collaboration by Tom Zé and Devendra Banhart.  In April 2008, Os Mutantes released their first song in more than 30 years, called “Mutantes Depois”, with new female vocalist Bia Mendes and male vocalist Fabio Recco, available for digital download and online stream.
In June 2008, “A Minha Menina” was the featured audio track for the McDonald’s commercial “Victory.”
In 2009, the band announced their new release in 35 years, Haih, to be released on September 8, by ANTI- Records.  They are to embark on a North American tour in support of the album.
