Biography

Brazil (1981 – present)

Titãs are one of the most successful rock bands in Brazil, along with Legião Urbana, Os Paralamas Do Sucesso and Barão Vermelho. The best known formation of the band was the one from the album “Cabeça Dinossauro” (Dinosaurhead): Nando Reis, Branco Mello, Marcelo Fromer, Arnaldo Antunes, Tony Bellotto, Paulo Miklos, Charles Gavin and Sérgio Britto. Out of these, only Mello, Bellotto, Miklos and Britto remain to this day.

History

* Formation and first works

The majority of the integrants of the band met themself at Colégio Equipe in São Paulo at the end of the seventies and, since their first live venue, at the school itself in 1981, the band began to make shows in several night clubs in the city. The first formation was: Arnaldo Antunes (vocals), Branco Mello (vocals), Marcello Fromer (guitar), Nando Reis (bass guitar), Paulo Miklos (sax and vocals), Sérgio Britto (keyboards and vocals), Tony Bellotto (guitar), Ciro Pessoa (vocals) and André Jung (drums). It was a pop/new wave-styled band, with small creativity and rather odd looks, with tender and little ball neckties. In 1984, without Ciro Pessoa, the band signed with the WEA label to record their first album, produced by Pena Schimdt. Although not well sold and promoted, the band spawned at that time their first hit: “Sonífera Ilha”(Sleepy Island).
