Dead Combo. Another return in 2006. (PT)

"Somewhere in the beginning of the 21st century, they met around the corner, in Lisbon city. Two wanderers, one a thin “fire horse” born in 66, a loner with a top hat and wrinkled face, the other, tall, born in 1970, who came from the dark world of Jazz, starsign “dog”, both swore to avenge the dead and resuscitate the living,
Influenced by Comics, they have misspent nostalgia in their pockets and the deaf soul lost in dark films. They play Lisbon, the city of the countryside, of the chimneys and of the white domes sceneries of a lost past, “fado”, western wanderer everything together in a voodoo of emotions, the Tagus, the lovers that go different ways abandoned angels on the crossroads of destiny, flowers with mixed up colours, saints, flaming chambers, naked guitars, spitted and thrown to the street, basses on fire, top hats chickens on the loose and things that roll in the street. there standing against the wall in the middle of all this mess, both of them bitting apple sins, while looking at you..." Taken from Dead Combo's biography.

Dead Combo are Tó Trips on the guitar and Pedro V. Gonçalves on bass, melodica and guitar.
They got together in 2003 in order to record a track for the tribute cd to the great Portuguese guitar player Carlos Paredes. They came up with what was known as Fado Western.

They've released so far "Vol. 1", their debut cd on Transformadores, in June 2004, and are to release their second, "Quando a Alma Nao E Pequena" still this year.

On an interview to Y, Tó Trips said that this new album won't be a "Vol.2", but neither something completely different. The record will have the contribution of Legendary Tiger Man, Marco Nunes (ex-Blind Zero), Sérgio Nascimento (Sérgio Godinho, Humanos, David Fonseca) and Peixe (Pluto, DEP).

To know more about them, check their blog or their page at MySpace. On the latter you can download 4 tracks from "Vol.1". I strongly recommend "Electrica Cadente".

Their first record can be purchased at CdBaby. Just follow the link.
