A popular band from the new wave end of Brazil's BRock scene, Nenhum De Nos hailed from Porto Alegre, in the South, and seemed to have an ear for the lighter side of American-style rock music. Here's a quick look at their work...
Nenhum De Nos "Serie Acervo Especial" (BMG, 1994)
Fun, bright new wave-ish guitar rock... This best-of collection draws on their first four albums, from 1988-92, work that reveals an unusually strong affinity for American and British-style rock. It opens with a Portuguese-language cover of David Bowie's "Starman," a song that was, improbably, the band's biggest hit... Their original material, mostly written by bassist Thedy Correa, is of an equal calibre... Although they sometimes go a little overboard with the shrill lead guitars, Henhum De Nos were notable for not getting mired down in hard rock sounds the way many of their BRock contemporaries did... If you're an indierock fan, I can't guarantee that you'll like this band, but this is certainly one of the more interesting, more melodic Brazilian rock records I've heard... Worth checking out!
