LIXOMANIA- Violencia & sobrevivencia 7"EP (CD-001, Brazil, 1982)

Jumping on the band wagon by reposting this. Now complete EP freshly ripped. Since I don’t speak mongolian, I can’t say nothing about the lyrics. We might hear more soon though. First posted August 1. 2006.

Now here’s one for the HC lads again:
LIXOMANIA were Brazils première HC band and their only release (apart from possible Compilation songs that I’m currently unaware of) was this hard to find and great 7″EP, entitled “Violencia & Sobrevivencia” from 1982. 6 songs all in all of which you get to hear the title track – extremely aggressive singing, fuzzy guitars and a raw production. Fucking awesome!!

I think there was a reissue of this on CD. But who needs CDs when there’s banks, guns and Ebay.

  5. Hey Erich, here is why this is so hard to find: once Moreno (vocal on LIXO MANIA) told me they used to make the EP release by releasing (throwing) it in the air, giving it to kids, breaking the records, etc… cause no one wanted to buy this in the time, so half of the pressing was wasted in this way!!!

  6. Pretty cool.
    As a nerd remark though, I wouldn’t say they were THE première hardcore band in Brazil. Cólera started before and was more hardcore then Lixomania.
    The Grito Suburbano comp was also recorded and released around the same time as the Lixomania EP and the 3 bands there (Colera, Inocentes and Olho Seco) also have a more hardcore sound than Lixomania, even though the latter had this crazy buzzsaw guitar sound.

  7. But Lixomania had the first HC release, at least that’s what I always thought. Colera came a year later, didn’t they?

    Nice info, Marcelo – thanks a lot! That explains why this babe is so hard to get!

  9. Erich, as far as single band releases go, this is the first punk one in Brazil, let alone hardcore.
    But Cólera started before them and was featured on record before as well (Grito Suburbano, recorded in ’81, released in ’82), although not so long before, and on a comp. Cólera’s first record of their own came out in ’84, after the Inocentes, Olho Seco and Ratos de Porao records.

    By the way, here’s a cool video of Cólera on TV in 1980, before any punk band here put anything out. They still weren’t that hardcore hehehe…

  12. This is definitely the first Brazilian Punk 7″ EP and first effort from a single Brazilian Punk band. I remember Fabio (Olho Seco) telling me stories about guys from Lixomania (pronounces LishomaNi’a) bringing a trolley full of records to be sold at his record shop and Fabio getting mad about it, saying: “too much stuff!!”
    Lixomania also appears on the live compilation LP “O Começo do Fim do Mundo” released on 1983.

    Well One band sing in Spanish and the other in Portuguese, you do not need to speak Mongolian.

    Que estupidez el comentario con el que parte el post. Seguramente el inglés es el unico idioma del mundo…

    Este es un gran registro, eso no se niega, por el contrario se agradece. Lixomania es el primer lanzamiento punk de Brasil. Muchas gracias! (thanks!)
