Never Mind The Bossa Nova - Here's Bloco Vomit

Police & Thieves

Originally sung by Junior Murvin and produced by the Godfather of reqqae Lee Scratch Perry. The Clash covered this on their debut album, it is to that version that the Voms mostly referred, as Gare couldn't quite reach those notes that Junior could.

In the style of a samba reggae, originated from Salvador, Bahia. The most popular Brazilian samba reggae performers are Olodum. A break in the middle comes from the spaced out cartoon Magic Roundabout.

Pretty Vacant

The 3rd single from the Sex Pistols, released in 1977. This also appears on their album Never Mind The Bollocks Here's The Sex Pistols, which has nothing to do with the title of this present album. The Sex Pistols in their short life-time are the biggest and most documented UK punk band. Gare, Jack, Vi and Jal did go to see them on their re-union tour in 1996. Don't think any of us caught them the first time round.

Another batucada, Gare takes the lead vocals again, with few chanters on the chorus.

Metal Postcard

Released by Siouxsie and the Banshees on their debut album The Scream, in 1978. Another band who never walked away without a series of hits.

A cross over tribal rhythm with maracatu, with an appropriately metalic sound. Lady Lovelace makes her debut on vocals for this one.
