Inocentes Pânico Em S.P. 12″

Six finely crafted pop-punk tunes. Sounds like ’78, but not in a nostalgic way—just powerful but tuneful material. Despite signing to a major, they remain political (title tune, plus “El Salvador”), though there is perhaps a bit of overproduction.

Inocentes Miséria E Fome EP

The INOCENTES present brutal ’77 punk on the A-side of their first solo effort, while the flip contains three very powerful thrashers. All the cuts feature a roaring instrumental attack, and “Apenas…” also contains some quick bursts of searing lead guitar. Excellent.
