Libera o Badaró
Libera o Badaró
Some time later, the band was nicknamed Cid Moreira em Chamas (Blazing Cid Moreira), but Cida Moreira, wife (or daughter?) of Cid Moreira (former Brazilian newscaster), knew about the fact and accused them of copyright infringement on her husband's name (father? grandfather?). Fast-forward a little more, another name appeared: Fusca 66 e seus Bancos Reclináveis (Beetle 66 and its Adjustable Seats). Soon after, became Busanfã de la Patrie (Buttocks of the Fatherland). Two days later, Mister Válvula Sinistra e os Empurradores de Container (Mr. Sinister Valve and the Container Pushers).
The situation turned out to be unbearable when, during the same show, the band changed names three times. Fortunately, Chico Xavier put an end to this schizo crisis, psychographing the name Libera o Badaró on one hand and The Beatles on the other. As the latter seemed to be already in use, the former was chosen. At last, a definite name! Stupid, but definite. And so, a band which revolutioned the Post-new Mutant Baianos movements had been consolidated, developing in a very subjective way the new-techno-frevo-afro-heavy, with slight influences from foxtrot and marcha-rancho. As one of the band members, who doesn't want to be identified, would say: “We can play anything that doesn't need three chords.” The group has been calling the attention of critics with a Pirulito que Bate-Bate (a Brazilian children's song) version for Caipira guitar, moog synthetiser, tuba, reco-reco, Gibson guitar with a valved Marshall amplifier, small cavaco, big cavaco, whistle quartet, gamba guitar and an important cast.
Its hillarious live performances have been considerated by specialized critics as “unpayable”, meaning nobody would pay a cent to watch these spectacles. About the band's spirit, the members of Libera o Badaró, which do not want to identify themselves either, claim everything is actually “a protest against bands who make protest songs”. Currently, Libera o Badaró is recording their first album, O Evangelho Segundo Jesus Negão (Black Jesus Gospel), which will be sold in a box with 38 other albums containing a total of 527 brand-new songs, totally obscure for anybody.
