Hard to believe these monkeys have been active for two decades? First met them in 2002 when Mozine picked up WHN? at the airport with wine stains on the front of his shirt. He blasted GG Allin at his apartment in Vila Velha while his mother made us breakfast, he blasted GUITAR WOLF every day while we drove, and they were a party to watch every single night on tour (I mean on stage and in the van). When we next crossed paths at a festival in Recife last year, and the party had not slowed down one bit (and clearly the 10,000+ in attendance liked the party as well). This is the first MUKEKA DI RATO demo from 1995, high energy catchy hardcore with a couple of ska parts (don't judge, it was the '90s).
Three extra tracks tacked on to the demo. They aren't identified on the tape, and I'm pretty sure they are not by MUKEKA (this is a common theme with the last batch of demos I picked up from Brasil, but who doesn't like a nice mystery, right?). For now, they are included with the demo, but some nice civilian is going to solve the mystery for all of us and we will edit the files in our computers, which is pretty much the same as refiling records. You can (and should) find MUKEKA DI RATO bassist, Crackinho co-parent and Läjä Records empresario here. Also, I just realized Crackinho has his own Twitter account, and I really wish I spoke Portuguese.
