Modulo 1000 is one of Brasil´s famous progressive rock bands of the early 1970´s, their only album frm1971 became legendary in the collectors scene, as one of the weirdest South American psych albums. The music is a synergy of British and American heavyrock (Black Sabbath, Hendrix, Led Zeppelin) and obscure Exotica, unique and catchy in its own way. As Luiz Simas (organ) remembers: "The music of Modulo 1000 had its own appeal to an audience that wanted a heavy, raw, experimental, psychedelic sound.
Our kind of music did not make it to the radio stations. It was too wild. The distribution of the record was done in a very limited way. The record label directors, which probably didn't understand or even didn't like our music, did zero promotion for the LP."
The CD-edition contains 8 bonustracks with 2 booklets a 6 page fold out of the stunning conceptual original cover artwork, plus an extra 12 p. booklet with, bio and lots of photos.
The vinyl version is presented in the original triple fold cover.
Highly recommended as one of the most terrific psychedelic, artistic statements of the 70s progressive hippie-era!
