Last Thursday I watched a couple songs by the Dead Trees and went to the bar to get a beer. We were standing there chatting and Rodrigo Amarante passes by, completely unnoticed. No fan crowd after him, just another guy at the bar. The four of us, all Brazilians, recognized him instantly. A bit afraid at first, we finally gathered courage to ask him to pose for a photo. He was very friendly and sat there talking to us for half an hour, just before their show. He told us that they’ve been on the road for quite a while, crossing the country in a van, carrying their own equipment, booking their own hotels, doing their thing like a small band. Amarante also mentioned Little Joy’s plans to play in Brazil, and said that sometime in 2009 Los Hermanos will get together for a concert, and after that they’ll go to a studio to record their next album.
Yay! The best Brazilian band is getting back together soon!
Uhm, the concert? Yes, that was pretty good too.
Taí, sua banda favorita vai voltar em 2009! E, olha, eu não descartaria a possidilidade deles voltarem para abrir o show do Radiohead. E aí gravar o LP5.
Aliás, eu contei que no show do Camelo ontem (13/12) no Canecão ele tocou CINCO músicas dos Los Hermanos? Isso mesmo: “Pois é”, “Morena”, “Além do que se vê”, “A outra” (a preferida da Mallu) e “Fez-se mar”. Ele parecia bem feliz.
