In 1974, with the highest popularity, Secos e Molhados group recorded their second and final album with 

original training. More elaborate and less popular than the first, as “defined” by Ney Matogrosso in a statement the Folha de São Paulo (January / 2000), “Secos e Molhados II” consists of social-themed songs like “O Doce e o Amargo” “Preto Velho” and “Tercer Mundo”. In a nutshell, the group head and composer João Ricardo could address real issues, as in“Não: Não digas nada” in “Toada & Rock & Mambo & Tango & ETC” and the hit single of the album “Flores Astrais” which are interpreted with all the expressiveness of the voice of Ney. 

The album was released in the Programme Fantastic in August 74, and unfortunately, the same year, two members of the trio that was the “flagship” of the group left: Gerson Conrad and Ney Matogrosso. This LP reissued this year by Polysom ​​brings not only an undeniable musical quality, but also the last chance to hear the general goods in the original formation…… ~ 



Secos & Molhados was a Brazilian vocal group from the 1970s whose classical formation consisted of João Ricardo (vocals, guitar and harmonica), Ney Matogrosso (vocals) and Gérson Conrad (vocals and guitar). João had created the name of the band alone in 1970 until joining with the different formations in the following years and to continue also alone with the album Memória Velha (2000). 

In the beginning, the daring performances, with extravagant costumes and makeup, made the band gain immense recognition and recognition, above all for songs such as "O Vira", "Sangue Latino", "Assim Barbados", "Rosa de Hiroshima" that mixes dances and songs of the Portuguese folklore like the Vira with critics to the Military Dictatorship and the poetry of Cassiano Ricardo, Vinícius de Moraes, Oswald de Andrade, Fernando Pessoa, and João Apolinário, father of João Ricardo, with a heavy rock unpublished in the country , which made it become one of the greatest musical phenomena in Brazil at the time and one of the most acclaimed by the critics these days. 

His debut album, Dry and Wet I (1973), was made possible by such performances that aroused interest in record companies, and projected the group on the national scene, selling more than 700,000 copies in the country. Financial disagreements made this formation disintegrate in 1974, the year of the Dry and Wet II, although João Ricardo continued with the brand in Secos & Molhados III (1978), Dry and Wet IV (1980), The Return of the Black Cat (1988) , Theater? (1999) and Memória Velha (2000), while Gérson continued to play alone. Of the group, Ney Matogrosso is the most successful in his solo career, and remains active since Water Bird Heaven (1975). 

The Secos & Molhados are enrolled in a privileged category among the bands and musicians that took Brazil from bossa nova to Tropicália and then to Brazilian rock, a style that only flourished expressively in the 80's. Their two debut albums incorporated new elements to the MPB, ranging from poetry and glam rock to progressive rock, serving as a fundamental reference for a generation of underground bands that did not accept MPB as an expression. The group continues to gain new generation attention: in 2007, Rolling Stone Brazil placed the first LP in fifth place in its list of the 100 greatest albums of Brazilian music and in 2008 to the 250: Essential Albuns of All Time Latin Alternative - Rock Iberoamericano placed him in the 97th position.
The initial formation of the group was composed by: João Ricardo (guitar of twelve strings and gaita), Fred (bongô) and Antônio Carlos, or Pitoco, as it is better known. The sound, completely different at the time, made Black Kurtisso owned by Peter Thomas, Oswaldo Spiritus and Luiz Antonio Machado in the neighborhood of Bixiga, in São Paulo, where the group performed, were visited by many people interested in know the group. Among the "curious" was the singer and composer Luhli, with whom João Ricardo composed some of the group's greatest hits ("O Vira" and "Fala"). 

Fred and Pitoco, in July of 1971, decide to follow solo career and João Ricardo goes looking for a vocalist. By indication of Heloísa Orosco Borges da Fonseca (Luhli), meets Ney Matogrosso, who moves from Rio de Janeiro to São Paulo. After a few months, Gerson Conrad, neighbor of João Ricardo, is incorporated into the group. Secos & Molhados begins rehearsing and after a year presents at the Teatro do Meio, by Ruth Escobar, which has become a mixed bar restaurant called "Casa de Badalação e Bédio". 

Classical formation (1973-1974). 

On May 23, 1973, the group entered the studio "Prova" to record - in sessions of six hours a day for fifteen days in four channels - their first album, which sold more than 300 thousand copies in just two months , reaching one million copies in a short time. 

The Drought & Wet have become one of the biggest phenomena of Brazilian popular music, beating all records of record sales and public. The disc was formed by thirteen songs that in the view of the critic, seem current until the present day. The most performed songs were "Sangue Latino", "O Vira", and "Rosa de Hiroshima". The album also highlights countless critiques of the military dictatorship that was implanted in Brazil, in songs such as the alternative blues "Primavera nos Dentes" and progressive rock "Assim Assado" - this most explicitly in verses that personify a dispute between socialism and capitalism . Even the cover of the disc was chosen by Folha de S.Paulo as the best of all times of Brazilian records. 

The success of the group attracted the attention of the media, which invited them to various appearances on television. The most relevant were the specials of the Fantástico program, Rede Globo. They always appeared with unusual makeup, different clothes being one of the first and few Brazilian bands to adhere to glam rock. 

In February of 1974, they performed a concert at Maracanãzinho that beat all the indices of audience never seen in Brazil - while the stadium had 30,000 people, another 90,000 were outside. Also in 1974 the group went on an international tour that, according to Ney Matogrosso, generated opportunities to create a solid international career. 

In August of the same year, the band released their second studio album, which featured "Flores Astrais", the album's only success. Launching just before the end of the band's classic lineup, due to internal fights. Maybe that's why the second album - untitled, with a black cover - has not been as commercially successful as the first. 

Period of inactivity (1974-1977). 

After the end of the group Dry and Wet, the three members followed in solo career. Ney Matogrosso released the following year, in 1975, his first solo album with the name of "Water of the Sky-Bird" (stuffed with musical experimentalism) and with the success "South America". João Ricardo also released in 1975 his homonymous album, better known as Disco Rosa / Pink Record. Gerson Conrad joined Zezé Motta and released a record also in 1975. 

João Ricardo acquired the copyright under the name Secos & Molhados, after a few fights in court, and went on the search for new musicians for the band to have new formations. 

Other formations. 

The first formation after the group ended in 1974 came in May of 1978, João Ricardo released the third disc of Secos & Molhados with Lili Rodrigues, Wander Taffo, Gel Fernandes and João Ascensão. The third album was released, and one more success of the group - what would be the last one of national recognition, and unique outside of the original formation - "Que Fim Levaram All Flores?", One of the most performed songs in Brazil that year, the who brought the new group of João Ricardo to the television presentations. 

In August of 1980, together with the brothers Lempé - César and Roberto - the Secos and Wet ones released the fourth disc, that did not have commercial success. The group's fifth formation was born on June 30, 1987, with the enigmatic Totô Braxil, at a concert at the Palace, in São Paulo. In May of 1988 left the album "the Return of the Black Cat", that was the last one of the decade. 

Alone, in 1999, João Ricardo released "Teatro?" showing the brand of the creator of Dry and Wet. 

According to the official website of the band, João resumed the group's work in June 2011 with the entry of a new member, Daniel Iasbeck. The duo released in November of the same year the autobiographical album titled "Chato-....~
