Na próxima sexta feira, dia 16 de dezembro, o Pin Ups fará um raro show em São Paulo para celebrar o relançamento de seu catálogo no formato digital. Os álbuns “Time Will Burn” (Stiletto 1990), “Gash – A Mellow Project by Pin Ups” (Zoyd 1992), “Scrabby?” (Devil Discos 1993), “Jodie Foster” (Devil Discos 1995) e “Lee Marvin” (Spicy 1997) além do EP “Bruce Lee” (Short 1999) foram digitalizados e estarão disponíveis para streaming e download no bandcamp da própria banda, do midsummer madness, aqui no mmrecords e também em todos os serviços de música online (Spotify, Deezer, Apple, etc).
O midsummer madness tem a honra de poder realizar estes relançamentos, trazendo de volta oficialmente os discos que moldaram e influenciaram vários novos artistas. Nossa intenção no selo sempre foi a de manter este catálogo, do Pin Ups e de várias outras bandas como Low Dream, The Cigarettes, Second Come, Killing Chainsaw, vivo, disponível e organizado de forma oficial.
O show será no Z Carniceria com início previsto para 23h30, logo após a exibição do documentário “Time Will Burn“, de Marko Panayotis e Otávio Souza, que fala sobre as bandas do início dos anos 90 no Brasil, que organizaram sua própria “cena”. O documentário está rodando o Brasil, sendo exibido em festivais de cinema e de música, e terá mais uma exibição em São Paulo, depois de estrear no In-Edit deste ano. A sessão de cinema no Z Carniceria começa às 22h, não se atrase!

It would be a waste of time to enumerate all the reasons why living today is shit: Donald Trump elected; BRExit; Rio de Janeiro declaring bankruptcy, the restaurant next to my house that served the best feijoada at $ 12.90 abruptly closed.
Life nowadays is shit. But to endure, to keep your head upright, the spine erect and the heart quiet, escaping from reality is fundamental. And I believe that you, like me, were raised escaping into music. So, believe in 2016, the best way to get away from the world is to play “Sky High”, the new Fish Magic album.
You must be thinking: “this guy was invited to write about the album, he’s going to laud it” but no. Believe me. “Sky High” transports you. It was the first sensation I had when I listened to the whole record. Because it’s different from what you expect from a brazilian rock band. Because Mario Quinderé, a veteran in Brazil’s independent scene, did not hide his feelings, his moments of solitude to compose “Sky High”.
This is Fish Magic’s 2nd album, its first was released in 2015, “Songs From the Night Shift“. Regis Damasceno, Quinderé’s partner since their pioneer indie bands in Fortaleza in the 1990s (one played in a band called Dead Poets and the latter in Velouria) co-produced both albuns. “Sky High” has 11 tracks, most of it recalls the best of brit rock, made in Rio, but could be London or Manchester. The softness, the ethereal, the details in the guitar lines and the soft vocal of Quinderé.
“Fish Magic is all that I like: music, movies, pictures. So I think Rio is in it, yes. The light and the evenings here… I spend a lot of my free time on my porch, just watching the buildings, the apartments and the people inside it, how light falls on them, traveling in the sky from here. I think the record was made on my balcony and, partly, that’s why I named it ‘Sky High’”, explains Quinderé. “Also, I read an interview with Tim Burguess (Charlatans) saying that today he is sober but before his life was sky high. I thought: that’s it! In my case, not drugs. Creating these songs for Fish Magic is my sky high“.

“Sky High” is out now on digital format through midsummer madness
“Landscape in the Mist” has a music video out too
Sci Fi isn’t exactly a band, it’s more a one man project. But Bruno home recorded 6 songs for his self titled EP with valuable help from Matheus Fleming, also former Câmera. “I don’t raise high expectations around Sci Fi. It was more for fun and therapy, a very cheap way of home recording songs,“ says Bruno.
The name Sci Fi is inspired on the movie “Primer” (2004): “It’s a low budget movie about friends who build a time machine with few resources and lots of experimentations and travel in time. Our EP is the same, we go back to references in the 80′s and 90′s, from bands we like, and experimented with it in our garages”, Bruno compares. We guess Sonic Youth, Yo La Tengo, Dinosaur Jr, Fugazi, Trail of Dead were some of the bands they visited in the past.
Three out of six songs are instrumentals because Bruno is not a natural singer. “It was defiant because this is a ‘guitar band’ with 13 or 14 layers of guitars on some songs and I’ve always been the bassist on my previous bands. Also, I was never the singer“, explains Bruno. “I tried to use vocals on some songs as an instrument and so, I found out that some of the songs didn’t need it“.
Sci Fi has 6 tracks and has been released on digital only.

Gravado no Rio de Janeiro, na casa do próprio Mário Quinderé, “Sky High”, o 2º álbum do Fish Magic foi mixado na Fábrica de Sonhos, por Bernardo Pacheco, e masterizado por Alexandre Fontanetti no Space Blues, ambos em São Paulo. A coprodução é de Regis Damasceno, parceiro de Quinderé desde quando ambos moravam em Fortaleza nos anos 1990, este tocava na Dead Poets e aquele na Velouria. Regis é conhecido pelo trabalho com o Cidadão Instigado e a banda do Marcelo Jeneci.
Uma das faixas do disco, “Landscape in the Mist”, também foi escolhida para ser o primeiro videoclipe do álbum, dirigido por Rômulo Cyriaco, que já havia feito clipe de “In a Heartbeat” do disco anterior.
