Not many rock groups implore the use of a theremin; but I for one have always dug that weird magical little thing. Ever since I saw absolute genius Cato ‘Salsa’ Thomassen use it. I was therefor pleasantly surprised when I heard the Brazilian foursome Mocho Diablo
use it on their debut EP called Green. Made up out of three guys from Flaming Moe
- Guilherme Klaussner (vocals, theremin), Mauricio Peruche (guitar), Thiago Pinho (drums) - and a new bassplayer - Murilo Silva (bass) - they recorded five straight up rock songs that rub against stoner and borrow some grungy greatness from the big names. Soulful gritty rock with a tasty sharp edge, fascinating structures and a truckload of savory riffs. Add to this the balanced and succulent drums and a lot of room for a sickly steady bass, dueling with the guitar and delivering little funky ditties. You know you’ve got some absolute gold on yer hands! Last but not least we have a vocalist that borders on greatness as well. Mocho Diablo, simply irresistible, absolutely wonderful and green no more!
