The name Acidente refers to two different bands, existing in sequencial times, having one little to do to the other. Firts Acidente was founded in by journalism students in Rio de Janeiro. This band played basic rock'n'roll, drifting from it to blues and samelikes. First they gained their space in Rio indie scene; however, just by the time Acidente had recorded their first independent album, inthe major labels detected a pop rock empty niche in Brazil's market, which had been left unexplored for some Toque De Recolher (Curfew) - Acidente - Gloomlandand decided to occupy it with their "products".
As a result, Acidente and many other indie bands were heavily torpedoed untill them all languished and perished, facing all sort of boycott in the media and complete ban Toque De Recolher (Curfew) - Acidente - Gloomland airplay - a mean deinvention of thousands of pioneers, so that half dozens cronies, minions of the big companies, could grab all Slim Smith - The Race / Jenny audience and profit.
When this first Acidente incarnation finally ended up, inthey had left 3 records, 31 tracks and no hit at all. Acidente - Mala, Zunga, Mario, JarbasIt took two more years until sole survivor Paulo Malaria, producer and keyboardist, managed to create a new band, this time intended to play mostly instrumental music, prog-rock oriented.
When this finally happened, the On My Rockin Machine - L7 - Slap-Happy group was named upon the former, allegedly due to a lack of available names. They recorded the LP " Quebre Este Disco ", released latebut that would only be launched as a CD inafter two more records had seen the light: this Toque De Recolher (Curfew) - Acidente - Gloomland , " Gloomland ", plus " Farawayers ".
In mid the band, with a new drummer and the same other three players, entered a new studio to record their first CD, finally entering the digital era. In the beginning this upgrade seemed hard to deal with, but, after some time, the sessions began to flow easily, alternating recordings, rehearsals and meetings for new compositions. The final achievement shows a variety of new tendencies and subtle sonorities, with wide use of overdubs, unaccessible so far.
Using a mixed digital-analogue system, the band could remarkably develop their musicianship; but because only units were pressed, this is ACIDENTE's least known work. This is basically an instrumental record, where only 4 out of 17 themes have lyrics, plus the bonus-track, which features the same lineup plus a special guest, and wasn't included originally for having been recorded months after the release.
Even though, Malaria kept refusing to tag their music progressive rock, stating that this honour should be granted by listeners, instead, he'd call it humbly "hard muzak", although there's an obvious contrasense in it. From " Gloomland " on, Acidente embarked on an increasing search for more elaborated sounds that would lead them to ' " Farawayers " and, intheir masterpiece " Technolorgy ", after which the band retraced back to an old simple pop rock, resulting in their latest modest and lesser known works.
Lucidez Lucidity 5'21 - Jarbas Loop 3. Backup 2'16 Toque De Recolher (Curfew) - Acidente - Gloomland Jarbas Loop A record to be heard with headphones, at late night, as loud as possible.
Although I wasn't playing anymore with them, I did the graphic stuff on a Mala's good idea for the sleeve, which was a 're-interpretation' of Brazilian flag with a barbed wired fence, a wall of cemetery crosses, a ball on fire with 4 bullets holes. In the beginning the changing seemed hard to take, but after some time the sessions began to flow easily, alternating recordings, reherseals and meetings for new compositions. The final result shows a variety of new tendencies and subtle sonorities, with wide use of overdubs, unaccessible so far.
Using a Red Hot And Blue - The Kinks - The Kinks часть 3-4 digital-analog system, the band could remarkably expand Englishman In New York (DJs From Mars Club Mix) - PH Electro - Englishman In New York (File) musicianship; but, because only units were pressed, this is probably ACIDENTE 's least known work.
