The new book

Brazil, 1985. The end of the military regime, Rock in Rio put Brazil on the global map of pop music, Tancredo Neves was elected president, Ayrton Senna won his first F1 Grand Prix, and Bizz magazine was released. While Brazilian rock music gained unprecedented notoriety in the country, musical revolutions didn’t stop happening in the underground. It is here that the third volume of Lindo Sonho Delirante begins.

From the second half of the 1980s onwards, after a period of political liberalization and cultural submission to the First World, Brazilian music started being rediscovered and revalorized by the youth. Preconceived notions started crumbling. Musicians went back to experimenting, mixing influences from abroad with our Brazilian roots. Anthropophagic revolutions started happening again. There was a recapture, a revaluation of forgotten records by Brazilian artists. Musicians, DJs, producers and collectors from around the world started exploring Brazilian music beyond bossa nova.

The goal of Lindo Sonho Delirante vol. 3: 100 fearless records from Brazil (1986-2000) is to show that Brazil produced transgressive musical works, many of which, unfortunately, continue to be neglected by a large audience. The digging of the works contained in this third volume begins in 1986. We set out on a journey that ends in the year 2000.

More than 60 interviews were made for this project so this new book bring many exclusive reports, accounts and recollections from Akira S, Alex Antunes, Andrea Daltro, Edson Natale, Fabio Golfetti, Frank Jorge, Jarbas Mariz, João Parahyba, John Ulhoa, José Augusto Lemos, Kassin, Marcos Suzano, Maria Rita Stumpf, Maurício Pereira, Miguel Barella, Paulo Barnabé, Pena Schmidt, Pedro Sá, Priscila Ermell, R.H. Jackson, Sandra Coutinho, Tetê Espíndola, Thomas Pappon, and Vitor Ramil, among others.

What is the Lindo Sonho Delirante project?

Lindo Sonho Delirante is a series of books that tell, through reviews of records, the trajectory of the fearless, cutting-edge, experimental and psychedelic music produced in Brazil. The goal of the series is to present an alternative history of Brazilian music and share records beyond the obvious, getting away from the interest of the industry and the algorithms of the digital platforms.

For a long time, what was heard and studied about Brazilian music around the world was the bossa nova and the big names of MPB. From the ‘90s onwards, there was a surge in interest on other scenes, such as Tropicália, Manguebeat, Vanguarda Paulistana, and the psychedelia from Pernambuco, among many others. The main goal of the Lindo Sonho Delirante project is to present these several musical facets of Brazil to the world, since the books are published in Portuguese and English.

The two previous volumes

In 2016, we released, together, the first volume of the series: Lindo Sonho Delirante: 100 psychedelic records from Brazil (1968-1975). In 2018, it was time for the second volume, Lindo Sonho Delirante vol. 2: 100 daring records from Brazil (1976-1985). The results were incredible and these campaigns turned into some of the biggest crowdfundings for musical books in Brazil. More than 1,000 people believed in the project and helped realize the dream of showing the richness of our music to the world. With support from each one of you and the people who purchased the books after the campaigns, we were able to carry on with the project. Today there are more than 5,000 books spread over more than 40 countries. Lindo Sonho Delirante is more than a book series. It is a project that involves lectures, workshops, concerts, trips around the world, record reissues and discussion panels about a very important facet of Brazilian music that is unfortunately not properly celebrated. The project has already promoted book launching events and lectures in England, France, Germany, Switzerland, Denmark, Norway, Sweden and the United States. In Brazil, events and lectures have taken place in Fortaleza, João Pessoa, Curitiba, Belo Horizonte, Rio de Janeiro, São Paulo and Recife.

Lindo Sonho Delirante vol. 2 – campanha no ar!

A campanha de financiamento coletivo do livro foi lançada no Catarse

por Lucas Lazarotto     25 Maio 2018

O jornalista, escritor, pesquisador e colecionador de discos Bento Araujo, editor da revista poeira Zine, acaba de lançar uma campanha de financiamento coletivo (crowdfunding) para viabilizar o livro Lindo Sonho Delirante vol.2: 100 discos psicodélicos ou audaciosos do Brasil (1976-1985). O primeiro volume do livro foi publicado em 2016, de forma totalmente independente, após uma bem sucedida campanha de financiamento coletivo. Lançado em português e em inglês, o livro foi vendido em mais de 40 países, ganhou cinco estrelas na revista britânica Record Collector e foi eleito pelo site britânico Vinyl Factory como um dos dez melhores livros de música do mundo daquele ano.

O primeiro volume trazia resenhas de discos lançados entre os anos 1968 e 1975, ou seja, abordava as origens do cenário psicodélico brasileiro. Neste novo volume, o autor pretende continuar contando essa história através da análise de mais 100 discos, desta vez lançados entre 1976 e 1985. Nesse período, a música brasileira ganhou ares heterogêneos, experimentais, vanguardistas e progressivos, e seguiu seu rumo sacudindo o underground, ainda sufocado pelo sangrento regime militar e pelo violento preconceito social. A garimpagem das obras contidas neste segundo volume começa em 1976, dando início a uma jornada de dez anos que termina justamente no ano de 1985, quando teve fim a ditadura militar no país.

De pioneiros como Tom Zé, Lula Côrtes, Arnaldo Baptista e Zé Ramalho até heróis e heroínas não tão celebrados como Marinho Castellar, Cátia de França, Jarbas Mariz, Luli & Lucinha e Flaviola e o seu Bando do Sol. Do rock bem brasileiro do Papa Poluição, Pão com Manteiga e Aratanha Azul, até a música vanguardista de Arrigo Barnabé, Itamar Assumpção e Aguilar e sua Banda Performática. Da sofisticação progressiva d’A Barca do Sol, Terreno Baldio, Recordando o Vale das Maçãs e Bacamarte, até a fusão promovida por nomes como Hermeto Pascoal, Grupo Um, Cheiro de Vida e Cesar Mariano & Cia. Todos estarão juntos nesse segundo volume do Lindo Sonho Delirante.

LSD: Suely e Os Kantikus

A distorção de Lanny Gordin era tão selvagem que seria impossível conquistar o grande público.

por Bento Araujo     25 out 2016

suelykSuely Chagas conheceu Rita Lee em 1962, quando iam para a escola no mesmo bonde. Apaixonadas por esportes e música, fundaram um grupo vocal: The Teenage Singers. Logo tornaram-se fãs dos Beatles e conheceram os garotos da banda Wooden Faces, Arnaldo Baptista e Raphael Villardi, entre eles. Depois de apresentações em comum em bailinhos e festinhas, as duas bandas se juntaram para se tornar o Six Sided Rockers, já com Sérgio Dias na guitarra.

Suely nessa época era o destaque do grupo, tanto que foi escolhida por Tony Campello para ser a sucessora de sua irmã, Celly Campelo, que casou e abandonou a carreira musical. Mas tudo foi por água abaixo quando Suely ganhou uma bolsa para estudar nos EUA. Quando voltou, o Six Sided Rockers havia se transformado em O’Seis, que depois virou Os Mutantes. Sobrou então para Suely montar um novo grupo com Raphael Villardi, qua também havia perdido a boca nos Mutantes. Assim nasceu Suely e Os Kantikus, que contava com um jovem e talentoso guitarrista chamado Lanny Gordin.

O grupo gravou este único compacto pela Philips. A tropicalista “Que Bacana” tinha a cara dos festivais, mas a distorção de Lanny era tão selvagem que seria impossível a canção conquistar o grande público. O mesmo pode-se dizer de “Esperanto”, que soava ainda mais psicodélica. Depois do compacto, Suely entrou na faculdade, virou dentista e nunca mais gravou.

Suely Chagas met Rita Lee in 1962, when they both used to go to school on the same tram, in the Vila Mariana neighbourhood, in São Paulo. Passionate about sports and music, the girls founded a vocal group: The Teenage Singers. They soon became Beatles fans and met the boys from the band Wooden Faces, Arnaldo Baptista and Raphael Villardi among them. After playing gigs in schools and parties, both bands came together to become the Six Sided Rockers, with the addition of Sérgio Dias on guitar.

Suely was the group’s standout performer. She was even chosen by pioneering Brazilian rock singer Tony Campello to be his sister’s successor, since Celly Campello had left the music business to get married. But all went wrong when Suely won a scholarship in the US.
When she returned, the Six Sided Rockers had become O’Seis, which later became Os Mutantes. Then Suely put together a new group with Raphael Villardi, who also had missed out on the Mutantes gig. Thus was born Suely e Os Kantikus, which featured a talented young star on guitar: Lanny Gordin.

The group recorded their only single on Philips. The Tropicália-infused “Que Bacana” had all it took to win the TV music festivals, but Lanny’s fuzz was so wild that it would be impossible to win over the general public. The same could be said of “Esperanto”, which sounds even more psychedelic.

After the single, Suely went into university, became a dentist, and never recorded another song again.

SOLD OUT

Lindo Sonho Delirante: 100 psychedelic records from Brazil (1968-1975) is fully illustrated with cover art reproductions of all the 100 records presented. Each album and single entry is accompanied by a review in Portuguese and English, meticulous reproduction of the original sleeve artwork, a headline containing the group/artist name, album/single title, it’s respective record label, release date and original pressing serial number.

Considering the manifesto-album Tropicalia ou Panis et Circencis as a sort of ground zero of Brazilian psychedelic music, our digging begins in 1968. From Tropicalia ou Panis et Circencis we set off on a journey of eight years, ending at what is maybe the rarest and most mythological Brazilian psychedelic album of all, 1975’s Paêbirú: Caminho da Montanha do Sol, by Lula Côrtes and Zé Ramalho.

From pioneers such as Arnaldo Baptista, Rogério Duprat, Tom Zé, Fábio and Ronnie Von, to pop stars like Rita Lee, Milton Nascimento, Secos & Molhados and Novos Baianos. From giants like Caetano Veloso, Gilberto Gil, Gal Costa, Jorge Ben and Os Mutantes to unsung heroes and heroines like Damião Experiença, Lula Côrtes, Sidney Miller, Suely e Os Kantikus, Marconi Notaro, Guilherme Lamounier, Walter Franco and Loyce e Os Gnomos. From the wild rock of A Bolha, Equipe Mercado, Ave Sangria, Casa das Máquinas, Spectrum and Paulo Bagunça e a Tropa Maldita, to the sophistication of Marcos Valle, João Donato, Egberto Gismonti, Luiz Carlos Vinhas, Pedro Santos and Arthur Verocai. All of them are gathered in Lindo Sonho Delirante. The superstars, the mavericks and the forgotten.

In addition to the one hundred (100) reviews, the book also contains an introduction in which the author analyzes how these musicians mixed the Anglo-Saxon pop music of the 1960s with their own Brazilian roots, taking cues from the Anthropophagics of 1922’s Modern Art Week, as well as local cultural icons such as Chacrinha and Grande Otelo.

The depth of the research and the artistic beauty of the album covers should attract both longtime collectors and those who are now entering the world of record collecting.

Praise for Lindo Sonho Delirante: 100 psychedelic records from Brazil (1968-1975):

“Penned by the editor of the country’s leading vinyl collectables magazine, this new book shines a light on 100 records that tell the story of Brazilian psych’s tumultuous first eight years. Beyond these little-known stories, perhaps the most important function of the book is as the gateway to the music itself; a listen to almost any of the iridescent singles, EPs and albums covered reveal them to be more than worthy of Araujo’s evangelism.”
Record Collector

“The cover shots of the 100 records chosen to represent this radical strain of self-expression would be worth the price of entrance alone. Add to that the detailed descriptions, the introductory essays and the general care for quality that’s gone into this labour of love and you have an utterly essential purchase. A lavish, jaw-droppingly beautiful book.”
Shindig!

“A lovely project cataloguing the artwork and history behind 100 classic and super rare Brazilian psych records from the country’s recording golden age. Expect to find Tropicalia favourites from Gilberto Gil, Caetano Veloso, Gal Costa and more alongside recently reissued rarities from Lula Cortes, Hareton + Meta and Pedro Santos – all accompanied by bi-lingual Portuguese/English commentaries and 7″-sized full-colour reproductions.”
Vinyl Factory (LSD chosen as one of the 10 best music books of 2017)

“The book proceeds chronologically, with detailed entries on records (in Portuguese and English) describing everything from pop heroes to tropicalia pioneers to wild takes on progressive rock, and the cultural and political climate that produced them.”
Wire

“Printed in both Portuguese and English, this is the perfect gift for the well-travelled psych fan whose knowledge of the Tropicalia movement and beyond starts and stops with Os Mutantes, Brazil’s answer to late-period Beatles. It’s fascinating stuff.”
Classic Rock

“Araujo’s writing is clear and incisive, relating biographical information, historical context, cultural significance, and a brief description of the musical highlights of each record. ‘Brazil is a psychedelic country by nature,’ asserts the author. The 100 records covered in this book bear out that assertion in 100 different ways. An entire world is opened up for you in its pages. Go explore it.”

Lindo Sonho Delirante: Bango

O disco homônimo do Bango estará presente no livro Lindo Sonho Delirante: 100 discos psicodélicos do Brasil (1968-1975)

por Bento Araujo     18 jul 2016

Bango

As origens do Bango estão em Os Canibais, grupo carioca de Jovem Guarda que lançou alguns compactos e um LP completo, em 1968, com versões de músicas dos Turtles, Outsiders etc.

Quando entraram em estúdio para registrar seu segundo disco, perceberam que o mundo do rock havia mudado após o festival de Woodstock, a ópera-rock Tommy e as mortes de Hendrix e Janis. Assim mudaram não só o nome do grupo para Bango como todo o conceito artístico do conjunto.

O resultado foi este álbum de 1970, com capa psicodélica e sonoridade monstruosa para o Brasil da época, fundindo hard rock, psicodelia e garra juvenil.

Este disco do Bango estará presente no livro Lindo Sonho Delirante: 100 discos psicodélicos do Brasil (1968-1975).
