about

It was early 2019 when we took the last subway home from one of our nostalgic Irish Sessions at Deep Bar 611. The craic was mighty that night, and 5 hours of music weren't enough to satisfy us. So we took out our instruments to keep on playing in the nearly empty train. Why, in the midst of our shenanigans, up came a man to hand us a wee card with the name of a new business in town: a pub called O Corvo (The Raven), located in the heart of alternative nightlife of Brazil's cultural capital – the city of São Paulo.

Inspired by Edgar Allan Poe's famous poem, the place was seeking new bands who played original sounds to pair up with the best hamburgers ever fried in a São-Pauloan grill – created by mr. Juliano Sobral, who, in partnership with @floydcarson, managed this fantastic business. This late-night subway networking took us to our famous weekly shows on Wednesdays, and then on Fridays, at O Corvo.

The place became our home, our Whisky A Go Go, our The Cavern, where we grew and showed our work to family, friends old and new, to the alternative youth of São Paulo, where we had the chance to share a stage with amazing music-mates – and eat some fantastic burgers. The Corvo's success was undeniable, judging by it's rapidly growing public, the cozy environment, the perfect location and, naturally, the original bands! By late 2019, the owners already spoke of expanding the business, filling us all with great excitement!

Today, it's been exactly one year since our last 2019 gig there, and almost 9 months since the last time we played live in the Corvo – unknowingly nonetheless.

Sadly, though, the Corvo did not survive the 2020 Pandemics and was forced to shut its doors earlier this year.
In memory of our departed home, today we release this EP with a handful of recordings from our last-ever show there. We have selected some interesting improvisations, some rather familiar sets to our followers, and a couple of invaluable cameos from our friends Nataly Macias and Adriano Martorelli, who so kindly joined us in the Last Corvo.

The Corvo is dead – long live the Corvo!
