Mão Morta (Teatro Diogo Bernardes, Ponte de Lima 2017)

| by | HIDDEN TRACKS | 0 comments:

The first band’s formation of Mão Morta, a Portuguese avant-garde rock band from Braga, goes back to 1984. The music style, difficult to categorize, reflects a human search for pleasure, freedom, urban violence, and a critique of contemporary consumerist society, often with sarcastic humour. One of the strengths of the band are the live performances for their intensity and dark mood, due to the signature alternative rock sound and the performance of the vocalist, half-sung, half-spoken, like a roaring spoken-word, in a quite unique voice.

Current members: Adolfo Luxúria Canibal – vocals, songwriter | Miguel Pedro – drums, programmer, composer, producer | António Rafael – keyboards, guitar, composer, producer | Joana Longobardi – bass | Vasco Vaz – guitar, composer | Sapo – guitar.

The band released the first work in 1987 (K7 “Mão Morta”) and their first album in 1988.
