Discografia Paulo Ricardo E Rpm 14 Cds
The Mercenrias debut is short and sharp and also full of unprecedented nuances. More aggressive than the groups of the indie scene in So Paulo, the quartet tossed firecrackers against Catholicism (Santa Igreja), commercialism in the music industry (Sucesso) and the heavy-handed police (Polcia), as well as questioning the ideological confusions reigning in the period immediately after the end of the military dictatorship (Inimigo, Pnico). Alternately, they could sound subtle and poetic, as in Amor Inimigoand Alm Acima. As the 100% female representatives in their generation, they raised an important post-punk banner here: gender equality / deconstruction, which sought to liberate rock from the patriarchal 1970s conformity and prove that women also had room in the scene.
