…is Portuguese for New Trends, and was a series of radio programmes hosted by José Roberto Mahr. It first began transmitting on September 1984 and aired every Sunday on a dozen or so stations throughout Brazil’s Radio JB network, with the intention of bringing Brazil the best in new music from around the globe.
This Polygram Records compilation was number two in a series of programmes aired in 1991/2, and included various artists from several labels under the Polygram umbrella including Go! Discs, Fontana, London and FFRR. Therefore we have the usual suspects like The La’s, The High, James and the Trashcans – represented here by, ‘Even The Odd’, from debut album Cake.
Roughly translated as: ‘The first record on vinyl was the EP “Obscurity Knocks” in February 90, which was for several weeks in the independent charts of England. Pointed out as one of the best guitar bands of the year. This music and the album to debut “Cake”.’
A wee footnote: This LP was given a mention in Finn Hartley’s book. ‘Who’s He? an A-Z of The Trash Can Sinatras’
