Remastering Os Replicantes “Compacto 1985” on Nada Nada Discos.

This is one of my favourite Brazilian punk bands and it is a great pleasure to have the opportunity to work on remastering from the original tapes this important part of early Brazilian punk history. This classic 7in is very difficult to find and thanks to the hard work of Nada Nada discos has now been reissued with every aspect of the original restored and refreshed from the audio to the artwork.

“Os Replicantes are an influential Brazilian Punk rock band formed in 1983 in Porto Alegre, Rio Grande do Sul by Wander Wildner (vocals/guitar), Herón Heinz (bass), and Carlos Gerbase (drums).

One of their first actions was the establishment of an independent label, Vórtex. In 1985, they released an EP with the songs “Nicotina”, “Rock Star” , “O Futuro É Vórtex” e “Surfista Calhorda”. The latter broke into radio stations around the country, making the Replicantes known throughout Brazil. Their debut LP, “O Futuro é Vórtex”, came out in 1986 on BMG Ariola. Then, they released “Histórias de Sexo e Violência” (1987), which caused a fuss in the media, and “Papel de Mau” (1989) on the same label.”
