Cólera - Dê o Fora 7″ (Hageland) ‘86
Cólera was the first Brazilian punk rock band to record and also the first one to perform abroad. Formed in November, 1979, in São Paulo by brothers Edson Lopes Pozzi and Pierre (Carlos Lopes Pozzi) and friend Val (Valdemir Pinheiro, later replaced by Josué Correia, who was by his turn replaced by Fabio Bossi), the band is devoted to denouncing violence and war , exploitation and social injustice , slavery of man to machine and the urban chaos . The first recording (Grito Suburbano, 1982) was shared with other bands of the homonymous movement which supported peace and ecological concerns in punk rock. Tente Mudar O Amanhã, the first LP, was recorded in 1985. The second, Pela Paz Em Todo O Mundo (1986), became a classic of the style in Brazil, selling 80,000 copies (30,000 in the U.S. and Canada). In 1987, Cólera toured Europe performing 56 shows in 10 countries, including Germany, Denmark, Switzerland, and France. Some of those recordings were released as LPs.
The group continue its activities until today.
