rage and urgency in this all female band

In the early 80s in São Paulo City, not only punk bands , but post-punk bands showed up stating SP as the most prolific city when it comes to rock bands in Brazil to date.

Among all these revolting groups The Mercenárias arose causing us surprise since they were not only very angry performers but all of them were women (early male drummer Edgar Scandurra fled and formed the IRA – kind of a mod/punk band) and presented us with one of the most violent and urgent punk music ever heard in Brazil.

  • Sandra Coutinho: Bass guitar
  • Rosalia: vocals
  • Ana Machado: Guitar:
  • Lou: drums (Edgar Scandurra was the first drummer)

They released only 2 official albuns, here is the first one ‘Cadê as Armas’ [1986] (Where are the guns?)
