O Passo do Lui (1984) – The Paralamas do Sucesso

1984 – Dictatorship in Brazil was approaching its end when from Brasília DF – the capital city – came the Paralamas do Sucesso.

Many post-punk bands had formed in early 80s, but usually following the punk pattern of 3 chords, straight forward drums and a military look. Not with the Paralamas.

They blended the new wave thing with much ‘ska’ and , no doubt, they copied a lot of what was being doing by The Police then, shaping the songs into something more ‘latino-america’. An excellent album that ran away from the bad guys bands that were emerging in the early 80’s and eventually helped to put them where they are today: One of the best bands of the world.

Enjoy it!!
