Lavage: South American Punk Rock Band!!!
Lavage: rests of food that are given to the pigs. (Aurlio Dictionary).
Some friends created a banda called Lavage in 2003. The main purpose since the beginning is play rock just for fun and without much responsability. Now Lavage is composed by Bruno Andrade (vocals), Taumaturgo Moura and Everardo Maia (guitars), Rafael Maia (bass) and Rogrio Ramos (drums).
Intitled as anti-style, Lavages rock sounds like classic punk rock from the 70s and the 80s, the same rock played by Ramones, The Clash, Sex Pistols and Dead Kennedys. The old punk rock receives contributions from other tendencies of the modern rock, like rap core, hard core, new metal and indie rock. The result is a mutant sound, too hard to be classified in strict cultural concepts and categories. The songs (lyrics + noise) explore social problems and human fellings, like pain, anguish and despair in relation to modern life.
Lavage does the old indie way in order to produce demo CDs. Since the first demo CD, recorded in 2003, the band controls all the process of production of the discs. All the rcords are made in the guitarrists own studio. The main objective is: work calmer (without hard dead lines) and keep the sound pure, dirty and louder.
In the road since 2003, Lavage has released two demo CDs. The most recent album, called Consumocracia, released in March (2007), has been well accept for the media and all audiences. Including six new songs (in Portuguese and English), the new album has a big surprise: a bonus track including No finals clip. In the future the band wants to travel to other states and countries to the new album.
Since 2003 until now, Lavage has played in important events at Cear. In 2005 and 2006 Lavage played at Feira da Msica de Fortaleza. In 2006, the band has also played at I Mostra de Msica de Fortaleza Petrcio Maia, event organized by the government. In 2006 and 2007, Lavage was a part of Forcaos, the biggest rock show at Cear that is organized every year by Associao Cultural Cearense do Rock (ACR). Lavage also loves playing in small rock parties and gigs in Fortalezas suburb and nearby cities.
