EP Left For Dead/Flicts – Split
Left For Dead: it’s definitely old-school flavoured, very reminiscent of UK punk circa 80-82. The guitar is a solid rock-out affair, distortion without destruction, and layered with some catchy fretboard runs, bass riffs are clean, fluid and in plentiful supply, while the drums are well-constructed without being flamboyant.
Flicts: Antifascist punk band from the Brazilian megacity São Paulo with Jef and Arthur from Agrotóxico playing bass and guitar.
The Flicts stand in a long tradition of protest – the first Brazilian punk bands such as Cólera, Olho Seco and Ratos de Porão were already founded during the military dictatorship of the late 70s and early 80s. The Flicts combine protest culture with their love for football. The play infectious hymns à la Sham 69 oder Cockney Rejects with Brazilian lyrics.
