Brazilian alternative rock, started by two young men from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, veterans of the underground
sceen there, drummer Pedro Garcia and guitarist Nobru Pederneiras got their feet
wet at the beginning of the 90s with a skater-punk band, Cabeça.
Pedro continued his career playing with Planet Hemp, and Seletores
de Freqüência, ex-Planet member BNegão’s funk-dub-philosophical-spiritual
band, which Nobru was recently a part of as bass player. From that band also came
yet one more member of Rockz, guitarist Gabriel Muzak, who has a solo career and
was also part of
Funk Fuckers, BNegão’s first band. Finally from Benflos,
another fine band from Rio, came bassist Daniel Martins who also plays with Lobão),
and singer Diogo Brandão.
Their sound is influenced by Arctic Monkeys, The Strokes, Franz Ferdinand, and all that those bands brought over from the 80s, but with the dirtiest lowdown stuff buried in the 60s and 70s from bands like The Rolling Stones, The Who, Sex Pistols. With danceable rhythms on the drums, and bass that speaks with a punk accent. Two guitars making it heavy while the rest add robotic arpeggios and weird chords. Their songs sing of love, dramatic, nihilistic, bitter, diverse subjects such as "love is just a tasteless, badly told joke").
