Today I came across one of the best Brazilian punk records of all time, Grito Suburbano (“Suburban Scream”). It is the first record to feature Brazilian bands of this genre, and you just don’t see these babies everyday, specially early pressings. You can listen to it on Youtube. Not for the faint-hearted.

Anonymous asked: Probably a stupid question, but hey what the hell. What do you think of Lou Reed?

He’s one of my favorite musicians of all time. To begin with, his work with The Velvet Underground was so groundbreaking you can almost split rock’n roll history between pre-VU and post-VU. Even though the “success” of the band shouldn’t be credited to him alone, I believe he was the most important member of the group (being John Cale the second). I mean, he wrote almost all of their songs. After the second Velvet album, White Light White Heat, I start to lose interest in VU musically speaking, but lyrically it’s still impressive. The same effect happens when I listen to his solo career. I’m reading Pass Thru Fire, a collection of all his lyrics, and depite not having heard some of the songs his writing style continues to amaze me. 

ps: the question is not stupid.
