Rendons grâce au label anglais Mr Bongo qui oeuvre avec enthousiasme et pertinence sur les chemins vicinaux de la musique brésilienne ,cette fois un combo garage rock du Nordeste est a l’honneur

19 Mai

Another super rare gem from the Rozenblit catalogue, the self-titled about by The Gentleman from 1972. The LP, on Smog Records, was so rare only 200 copies were ever pressed for radio promotion and only three of the originals are now known to still exist today.

Formed by Hugo Leao (real name Hugo Filho) in 1966, The Gentlemen were a Garage-Rock band from Pernambuco (north-east Brazil) that came together via inspirations from the ‘Jovem Guarda’ movement and the 60?s psyche-rock sound from the UK. The group consisted of Hugo Leao (bass and vocal), Célio (rhythm guitar), Valmir (lead vocal), Saulo (drums), Enilton (guitar) and Carlito (keyboards).

‘Sorriso selvagem’ is the first track on the album and sounds like a mixture of Santana and Deep Purple.

The single ‘Christina’ merges psych sounds with the traditional Pernambucan percussion, Indian sitars & Moroccan lutes

The LP features fully reproduced original art, featuring beautiful drawings by Jomar Gama pressed on 180gm vinyl with original label art. Also available on CD and download.

Mr Bongo Records is a Brighton based independent record label, independent film and publishing company specialising in world music and art house / world cinema. It was formed in 1989 by David ‘Mr Bongo’ Buttle, and operated out of London until 2003.
