Never Mind The Bossa Nova - Here's Bloco Vomit

Do They Owe Us A Living?


Originally recorded by Crass, released on their debut album "Feeding of the 5000", released in 1978. Crass were the first of a generation of anarcho-punk and promoted a great deal of the DIY movement of the time, through their label Crass records. Founder members Gare and Jack followed this movement.

The Vom's interpretation, begins with a series of calls and responses, common in Rio. It then exceeds the speed limit of a Brazilian style for Rio, batucada. Sung by Gare Rama.

Jilted John

A one hit wonder, released by Jilted John in 1978, with the ever so catchy "Gordon is a moron". The author received a copy our recording and reckons we've done it justice.

Performed in the style of baiao, this is much more easy listening than the opening full on batucada. Sung by Jal Frezi.

Teenage Kicks

Originally released by The Undertones in 1978. John Peel has been quoted as saying that this is his all time favourite song. Out of all the songs he must have heard! Despite several attempts to get a copy of our version to him, we never did get played. Our 2nd CD Play This Ya Bastard! is our cry for Peely to play us.

Another batucada. This time Cherry Parsnip entered the vocal booth.
