OS MUTANTES LIVE
RECORDED AT THE BARBICAN, LONDON 2006 Double CD/DVD
LUAKA BOP NEW RELEASE OUT NOVEMBER 13, 2007
How did 60s Brazil produce the wildest, most psychedelic rock 'n' roll group of them all? And why, three decades on, has the rest of the world gone crazy over them?
| Os Mutantes|
As the Daily Telegraph put it "people talk about cult bands, but there should be a separate category for Os Mutantes, who have had a fanatical following among music lovers for years."
Their influence has extended far beyond the boundaries of Brazil – Kurt Cobain publicly requested a reunion tour from the trio in 1993, Beck released the experimental album Mutations with the hit song "Tropicalia," with dozens of other bands including Of Montreal, Super Furry Animals, Devendra Banhart and The Fiery Furnaces have all flown the flag for Os Mutantes
Against all odds, in May 2006 the band reunited for the first time in over 30 years for a euphoric show at the Barbican's Tropicalia Festival. The recording of this historic concert, with special guests Devendra Banhart and Noah Georgeson, is now to be released on CD and DVD by Luaka Bop.
"Light-opera vocal harmonies to fuzz-toned garage stomp, to slow, mock-bluesy rock, to a brief bit of improvised chaos." -The New York Times
