Biography

Raimundos is a Brazilian band, based in Brasília, Distrito Federal. Their genre mixes with elements of , a popular type of music and dance from Brazil’s northeast.
The name Raimundos is derived from one of their greatest influences, the Ramones.
The band was formed in the late 80s by Rodolfo Abrantes (vocals), Digão (guitars), Canisso (bass) and Fred (drums). After doing some demo tapes, they released their first record by Banguela Records:
Raimundos (1994).

Raimundos became popular among the younger audience because of their “weird” appearance and their funny and sarcastic lyrics, full of profanity and slang. They broke into MTV Brazil, making their first hits “Selim” and “Puteiro em João Pessoa”.

Lavô Tá Novo was released in 1995, and became the most successful act of those days. “I Saw Your Saying (That You Say that You Saw)”, one of the hit singles of their records, dealt with a fictitious meeting with Madonna. Other singles like “Esporrei na Manivela” and “Eu Quero Ver o Oco” easily appeared on radios and MTV.

It was followed by Cesta Básica (1996), a rarities album and then Lapadas do Povo (1997). “Lapadas” was heavier than the previous albums, changing the usual “forrocore” style of the band. “Andar na Pedra” became the most known music of the album.

Só no Forévis (1999) became the most sold album of the band, and made Raimundos known by audiences other than the ones which usually patronized them. “Mulher de Fases”, “A Mais Pedida”, “Me Lambe” e “Aquela” went to the top positions of the charts and MTV.
