Have you recovered from yesterday's George-induced extravaganza yet? Several of my senses are still shook up (in a good way), and at least one of them may be permanently discombobulated.
Tucked away in the midst of that cavalcade of sounds was a note from me mentioning that I would be following up with a post on a particular Portuguese band.
This is that post, and Quarteto 1111 is that band. Considered by many (possibly) to be the founding fathers of Portuguese psych, they made a couple of cracking singles in 1970. These are they.
"Todo O Mundo E Ninguém" - Quarteto 1111
"Back To The Country" - Quarteto 1111
The lead singer Jose Cid went on to have successful solo career, the highlight of which was perhaps his 1978 rock opera "10,000 Anos Depois Entre Venus e Marte" (10,000 Years Later Between Venus and Mars).
In the Eurovision clip he is dressed like a Portuguese Orange Walk participant!ReplyDelete
