Biography

The Charts may refer to:

1. a Brazilian mod band from São Paulo;
2. an American doo-wop group of the 1950s.

1. With the fragmentation of São Paulo’s independent music scene in the 80’s and 90’s brazilian scenario, underground bands turned their attention to a revivalist wave similar to Brazil’s South cities, ready to rescue the values ​​of sixties sound to result into a contemporary, modern fresh sound between top notch mainstream radio and total anonymity.

The Charts - name inspired from a Atlantic Records LP compilation - influenced by the mod groups from the 60’s, tons of Motown/Stax-oriented R&B, Soul Music and 60’s Garage bands, turned feedbacks into breaths of fresh air, metropolis-esque poetry walking side by side with rhythm beats in synch with dancerfloors and young souls along São Paulo - through the hands of guitarist and singer Flavio Telles, bassist Sandro Garcia and drummer Roberto Tomé.

The band released ”Carbônicos” (Carbonic), their first record, on Suck My Discs records, owned by journalists Alex Pucci and Celso Antunes. From 1990 to 1999 the band released two demo tapes (re-released later on compilation “Pappon Studio Sessions” recorded in Thomas Pappon studio) and a second album, ”São Paulo em PB” (São Paulo in B/W).

Their first album is still, after almost 20 years, acclaimed and remembered with enthusiasm among fans and newcomers, as well as the solo careers of the band members.
