V/A "Sub" Compilation LP


"Reissue, originally released in 1983. SUB is the most classic Brazilian punk compilation, recorded between 1982 and 1983. It was conceived and brought to fruition by Redson, the guitarist and vocalist of Cólera, who is considered one of the key figures in South American punk. Besides Cólera, Redson invited Fogo Cruzado, Ratos de Porão, and Psykóze, three of the most promising and active unrecorded bands at the time. If Cólera was the most experienced band in the scene at the time, Fogo Cruzado had already left its mark as one of the best, if not the best in terms of skill and stage presence. Similarly, Ratos de Porão and Psykóze on the other hand were younger and had fed on the new ways of punk from the get-go. Even though the Grito Suburbano bands had initiated the evolution towards hardcore a year before, SUB brought to the scene even higher levels of belligerence and speed. Just like how other international scenes documented the rise of punk with Flex Your Head in the US, Propaganda - Russia Bombs Finland in Finland, Punk and Disorderly in the UK, Outsider in Japan, and many others in several countries during 1982, the idea was to record the growth of Brazil's punk scene. The title chosen for Brazil's second punk comp was SUB, which used part of the idea for Cólera's aborted debut album and alluded to São Paulo's literal (working class) suburbs, as well as its proverbial ""subterranean"" underground -- punk's natural habitat. And of course, underdevelopment (in Portuguese, ""subdesenvolvimento"") malnutrition (subnutrição) and other Portuguese words starting with the prefix ""sub"" representing endemic Brazilian problems. Remastered from the original master tapes at the legendary El Rocha Studios in São Paulo. Includes four bonus tracks from the pre-recording, comes with a rare poster, an insert with lyrics, and a great new text written by Pedro Carvalho. "
