AS MERCENARIAS

AS MERCENARIAS – DEMO 7″ BRAZIL PUNK ROCK (1982 – 2005)

Here’s a 7″ demo by AS MERCENARIAS, a nice and obscure female band from BRAZIL. This 7″ was coming with first 1000 copies of their 2005 1st LP repressing (Original is from 1985) on SOUL JAZZ RECORDS. Songs are demo version. This band plays a nice and fast melodic PUNK ROCK. Very interesting to listen to…

  1. Excellent post! Just a comment: Mercenarias might not have been well known in the US, but they weren’t obscure in Brazil. Brazil was/ is one of the biggest music markets in the world, and are pretty self sufficient without exporting their bands the way the UK does. Mercenarias wound up releasing a few records (some of which are awesome as well!) on EMI Brazil. The Trashland LP from ’88 is awesome, for example. Another example: Innocentes– who has an entry earlier on this site, wound up getting signed to a major as well. (Though they didn’t make the transition as gracefully. Their major label stuff is less interesting hard-rock type stuff.)
    Again, thanks!
