Os Mutantes Are Here!

Os Mutantes

While I was hoping to get to the Yonder Mountain show tomorrow night at Mr. Smalls in Millvale but probably won’t, I am definitely going to try and get to the Os Mutantes show this Friday night.

Touring North America in support of their first studio album in over 30 years, Os Mutantes were one of the most influential psychedelic rock / tropicalia bands to come out of Brazil in the late 1960’s and early 1970’s. They’ve influenced artists from Beck to Kurt Cobain to David Byrne. And while the current lineup is filled with a few younger faces, the heart of original lineups, guitarist and singer Sergio Dias and drummer Dinho Leme, are intact (minus the vocals of one Rita Lee).

Here’s an old, old, old compilation of some early Os Mutantes stuff from youtube:

Their website is sort of under construction: http://www.mutantes.com/

but you can find out more on their MySpace page: http://www.myspace.com/osmutantes
