Full Gas (1984) Marina Lima

Marina Lima was one of the first Brazilian women to appear in the early 80s playing and singing a new wave based pop music. Before her the Queen of Brazilian rock’n’roll was (and still is) Rita Lee Jones, former Mutantes singer (along with Arnaldo Baptista) since late 60s.

With the most beautiful voice and wonderful tunes she soon conquered not only the rockers but all the country.

Marina showed a unique approach in her ways to make music and soon she was playing on the radios and touring all over Brazil.

This album called Full Gás (1984) is the peak of her post-punk period, but she would go on and on recording and playing to date.

  1. THIS IS NOT POST PUNK IN BRAZIL. MARINA IS MPB POP EMBROMATION IN ROCK ROLL BASIC NEW WAVE…
    FAKE…………

    • let me tell you dude, almost everything from rio de janeiro in the 80’s is MPB POP EMBROMATION IN ROCK ROLL BASIC NEW WAVE… FAKE………… , gotcha?

      and NEW WAVE is just another form to say POST PUNK after all.
