Biography

One of the greatest names in Brazilian humour-rock and precursors of punk attitude in that country, the group Joelho de Porco was formed in 1972 by Tico Terpins (former Os Baobás), Walter Baillot, Próspero Albanese, Conrado Assis and Rodolfo Ayres Braga.

In 1973, with vocalist (and actor) Ricardo Petraglia, they recorded a demo disc called “Se Você Vai de Xaxado, Eu Vou de Rock And Roll/Fly America” – produced by Arnaldo Baptista of Os Mutantes fame. Two years later came out the debut LP “São Paulo 1554/Hoje”, highly praised by music critics for the successful blend of heavy rock and elements. In 1976, with a new vocalist – the Argentinian Billy Bond – Joelho de Porco started making a more aggressive sound, similar to the music – popular in UK at the time. An homonymous album was released in the following year, just before the announcement of the end of the band.

After some time with other projects, Tico Terpins reformed the band with Próspero and the singer Zé Rodrix, and a new album came out in 1983, “Saqueando a Cidade”. With David Drew Zingg, the song “A Última Voz do Brasil” won an award in a television music festival. Joelho released another LP in 1988, “18 Anos Sem Sucesso”, with an american pre-rock pop repertoire.

Tick Terpins died in 1998 due to a heart attack, and Joelho de Porco disbanded.
