Bloco Vomit, Nevermind the Bossa Nova here's... (Bloco) CD

They're calling it Samba Punk and it's the kind of from-nowhere brainwave that caused Tortelvis to kick off Dred Zeppelin. Bloco Vomit picked 12 of their favourite punk tunes and subject them to a radical beating---in the form of tribal drum patterns like Batucarda, Baiao, Maracatu and Samba. The songs include "Jilted John", "Pretty vacant", "Roadrunner" and "Should I stay or should I go?" The bizarre thing is that it really does work, the percussive inventiveness, especially an incredible bass sound, giving a whole new dimension to classics like "Oh Bondage, up yours!" In a further twist, they all cross-dress for live performances. Excellent record.
