Gang 90 & As Absurdettes – 1981 – Perdidos na Selva – single

As I couldn’t find the single I’m up with some video. (It takes time to find, but soon).

Gang 90 & As Absurdettes is considered to be – along with Blitz – the predecessor of all Brazilian New Wave bands in the 80s.

DJ and journalist Júlio Barroso who had lived in New York decided to launch a band styled after the ones he had known there and the band succeeded after they had taken part in a famous Brazilian Pop Music Festival (MPB SHELL 81) and one of their songs was chosen as a popular soap opera soundtrack.

Julio Barrsoo died in June 1984, but keyboardist Taciana Barros went on to release two more albuns before they finally split up.

artists who took part in the project were:  Júlio BarrosoAlice Pink PankLobãoMay EastLonita Renaux (Denise Barroso)Luíza Maria,Wanderley TaffoGuilherme ArantesLee MarcucciGigante BrasilHerman TorresOtávio FialhoLuiz Paulo SimasTaciana BarrosBeto FirminoGilvan GomesPaulo Le Petit, Curtis.
