THE DIRTY COAL TRAIN: Portuguese Freakshow 2xLP


In stock

SKU: 825 Categories: ,


During the years between their childhood and adulthood they dreamed of and hoped to enter the restricted group of chosen creators getting stuck in the clutches of the distance and desolate winds of their native land.
For the past seven years, they have independently traveled  the lands and habitats of the selected few, meeting countless artisans of the creative process with whom they shared their love and commitment to art (sometimes for this very same reason they were called “amateurs”) and learned that they were trying to incarnate what was, for them, a distant and meaningless word. So, they chose to walk this parallel world where they were accepted as equals, away from a world that separates recognized creators from amateurs … the “chosen ones” from the freaks !

Includes covers of original songs by: Residents, Richard & the Young Lions, The Standells, Marti Barris, The Animals and Beat Happening.

Double LP released by Groovie Records and Garagem Records.
Recorded at Golden Pony, Lisbon and Estudio King, Barreiro.
Artwork : Olaf Jens. Produced by Ricardo Ramos and Beatriz Rodrigues.
