Olho Seco

I guess some albums change peoples lives in profound ways, and I know I've posted a lot of rants and raves about the "Welcome to 1984" comp in the past, and this is another related post. Ive spent years tracking down most of the output of the bands on the comp, and i have almost succeeded. Here is a chronicle of another band whom out of all of the bands on that comp, Ive loved most. Olho Seco formed in San Paulo in 1980, with members of Colera. I don't know much about them other then they still play, there from Brazil and they are AWESOME! There's a good link at Kill From The Heart.

Olho Seco -Botas, Fuzis E' Capacetes (Punk Rock Discos 1983)

This is one of my favorite releases of there's, It has been repackaged as an a sorta incomplete discography CD on Gravacoes Sem Qualidade records.
Track Listing:
1. Nada
2. Botas Fuzis Capacetes
3. Muito Obrigado


OLHO SECO - ST EP (Pogar Records, 1984)

Just as good as the First EP, the only thing that its lacking on is the live side (mainly because for the most part I hate live recordings). It has one of my favorite Olho Seco songs ever (Isto e' Olho Seco).
Track Listings:
1. Isto é Olho Seco
2. Castidade
3. Sinto (Live)
4. Lutar matar (Live)
5. Vida violenta (Live)


Olho Seco - Fome Nuclear ( Label Unknown, 1988)

With this release, we see Olho Seco taking a more Noise/Thrash approach. Not one of my favorites, but here for the completest nerd.

Track Listing:
1. Fome Nuclear
2. Johnny Black
3. Vencer Regras
4. Sintomas Dementes
Olho Seco - Olho Por Olho LP (Cogumelo Records, 1989)

The First and only LP before the first break up, and follows in the manner of the Fome Nuclear EP. One big cacophony of noise, and is somewhat akin to what Ratos de Porão where putting out at the time.
Track Listing:

1. Vencer
2. Regras
3. Condenado
4. Sintomas dementes
5. Erupação
6. Canibais
7. Johnny Black
8. A vingança (de Johnny)
9. Olho por Olho
10. Pó em ruína
11. Fome nuclear
12. Desintegraçáo
13. Olho Seco
14. Vai tomar
15. Besta humana


Olho Seco - Havera' Futuro? CD (Gravacoes Sem Qualidade Records, 1997)

I dont have a lot of info on this CD, it apears to be a re-recording of a bunch of early stuff. Frankly, I think this fucking rocks and everyone needs to have a copy, that is if you can find it, not sure if its in print, but I found a copy on Soulseek.
