Biography

They play Lisbon, the city of the countryside, chimneys and white domes, sceneries of a lost past, the fado, the loiter western, all together in a voodoo of emotions, the Tagus river, misplaced lovers, abandoned angels in the crossroads of destiny, flowers with misplaced colours, saints, burning hot chambers, naked guitars, thrown on the street, double basses on fire, top hats, chickens on the loose and things that roll on the street.

In “Vol.2: Quando a Alma Não é Pequena”, Dead Combo give us also traces of tango, flamenco, the far west as seen by Ennio Morricone, the real Cuba and the one Marc Ribot sighted, the juish klezmer and the Sicilian drama… They tear apart the soundscapes they already had given us in “Vol. 1”, the debut album that received unanimous appraisal by the critics in 2004. Of this album it was written that it was “…one of the most beautiful and touching recordings ever born under the melancholy sign.” or “…a project that is like a UFO in the Portuguese musical world in 2004 – or any other year(…)”

Tó Trips and Pedro Gonçalves form Dead Combo. The group was formed in 2003 by an invitation of Henrique Amaro from Antena 3 radio, to record the track “Paredes Ambience” included in the homage CD to the genius of the Portuguese guitar Carlos Paredes, “Movimentos Perpétuos – Música para Carlos Paredes”. They incarnate two characters that could have come from a comic: a caretaker and a gangster.
