With all of those who started shouting “private press only” after Shadow named an album after those American self-starters who took their recorded destiny into their own hands, consider this: as hard as it might have been to record, press and distribute your very own wax capsule in America in the early ’70s (and as rare, and good, many of them are), doing the same under Brasil’s military dictatorship was markedly more difficult. And releasing a psychedelic, fuzz and effects drenched opus with revolutionary musings disguised within double entendres? Next to impossible.
You’d want this one in your collection if it contained just one good track within its beautifully packaged gatefold cover. That this album screams perfection from start to finish just adds to its legendary status. The brainchild of poet Márconi Notaro, alongside his friends and compatriots Lula Cortes and Ze Ramalho (the men behind perhaps the most legendary of Brasil’s private-pressed albums, 1975’s awesome Paebiru), this album contains what can only be described as Brasilian ragas played with the Portuguese guitar and Lula’s own invention, the Tricordio; improvised passages so fluid you’d swear they were scored; psychedelic-funk jams about staying true to one’s origins; and, throughout, Notaro’s complex yet approachable poetry, sung by the poet himself.
The highlight of the album, if there is just one: Notaro’s improvised “Nao Tenho Imaginacao Pra Mudar De Mulher (I Don’t Have The Imagination to Change Wives),” a gorgeously melancholic piece that, when one sees it transcribed (gotta thank my lovely girlfriend for that), is nearly impossible to imagine as having flowed directly from the mind of one of the most underrated Brasilian poet/composers.......



To speak of Marconi Notaro is to relive the story of one of the greatest exponents of Brazilian Psychoanalysis.
The poet, musician, writer was undoubtedly a misunderstood genius at the time, but left his mark to posterity and despite having died in the 90s, have been getting more and more admirers of his work.
Fully involved with the good guys, that is, Ave Sangria, Zé Ramalho, Silvio Hansen, Robertinho from Recife and, especially, Lula Côrtes, Marconi always wanted to create something new for music, with totally anticomercial concepts. In fact, I believe that it was this essence that made him try harder and composed the pearls that would enter the classic work Marconi Notaro - In the Metazoan Sub Kingdom, released almost independently in 1973. Little is known about this album , Even because it is considered very rare for collectors. As a hidden gem of our music, In the Metazoan Sub Kingdom has its "cult" side and is idolized by those who know it or even by those who have had the privilege of hearing it at least once.
Even with Lula Côrtes' illustrious participation (starting with the cover, which is his art) and Zé Ramalho, this record and the music of Marconi Notaro have the same aesthetic as the classic Paêbiru. Just to get an idea of ​​the level we're talking about. There are sounds of natural elements (like flowing water and the wind beating), flutes, viola, bass, distorted guitars (played by Robertinho from Recife) all mixed up and evidenced at the right time. Without exaggeration, it is almost an opera Rock of Northeastern music. Great really !!
There is no way to hear the songs "Desmantelado" (the samba that opens the album), "Ah Vida Ávida" (beautiful instrumental song), "Fidelidade" (frevo Rock, in the best New Bahian style), "Maracatu" Anthropological ("Anthropological I and II") and "Made in PB" (visceral Rock) and not feel a sense of peace, comfort and extreme pleasure. In fact, unique sensation.
Of course, in the Metazoan Sub Kingdom it is not a disk to be heard and "digested" quickly. At first, there may even be a certain strangeness due to its high complexity. But as well as Paêbiru and Rosa de Sangue do Lula Côrtes, Wet of Suor do Alceu Valença or Mote and Glosa do Belchior, for example, it is a beautiful album, that can come to have the status of "the bible of Northeastern Psychedelism ".
Already Marconi Notaro ... simply a master !! With its sophisticated and setentistic poetry, it generated yet another of the pearls of Brazilian music, which is very rich by the way.
Listen to Marconi Notaro - In the Metazoan Sub Kingdom, satisfaction more than guaranteed.....


The LP "No Sub Reino dos Metazoários Rozenblit"   by Marconi Notaro, is one of the exponents of the psychedelic northeastern scene. Launched in 1973, it fits in the line of works such as the Lula Côrtes & Lailson albums - 'Paebirú' and 'Satwa', classics of national psychedelia. 



Recife, the capital of Brazil's Pernambuco state, has never enjoyed the status or publicity of Salvador or Rio, but it's one of the country's great music centres. A port city famous for its African-influenced maracatu styles and the wild fusions of the Mangue Bit movement in the 1990s, it was also the centre of an experimental music scene in the 1960s and 70s that provided a local answer to Gilberto Gil and Caetano Veloso' s Tropicália movement – and angered the military authorities, who destroyed albums they disapproved of. As this intriguing compilation shows, the Pernambuco bands of the era were influenced by western psychedelia, Indian music and local styles, and were all bravely different. The set starts with the furious guitar riffs of The Gentlemen, then settles down to concentrate on three artists: Geraldo Azevedo matches cool, crooned vocals against often discordant backing; Lula Côrtes (who once recorded in the woods to escape the military) switches from acoustic and electric guitar styles to choral work; and Marconi Notaro's engaging tracks include maracatu percussion and sitar-backed folk-rock. An uneven set, but worth checking out....by...Robin Denselow...Guardian....~


Ultra-psychedelic in some moments, the album opens with the samba "Desmantelado" (composed by Notari in 1968, "in the days of the Popular Theater of the Northeast), with the regional formed by Notari, Robertinho of Recife, Zé Ramalho and Lula, among others. The second track, 'Ah Vida Ávida', with 'Notaro throwing water in the Itamaracá cacimba', plus Lula in the popular 'zither' and Zé Ramalho in the viola indicate what is next, a mix of psychedelia with hallucinations of the simplest Popular music, such as the 'Fidelidade' frevo (... "I remain faithful to my origins, son of God, nephew of Satan" ...).
The most radical album album moment is the fifth track, 'Made in PB', partnership of Notaro with Zé Ramalho, a classic rockacre, highlighting Robertinho's distorted guitar from Recife and echo effects. The songs 'Anthropological 1' and 'Anthropological 2', like most other songs, are studio improvisations, bringing together the musicians already mentioned, with great sound and poetic result.
With the production of the personnel of the multimedia group of Lula Côrtes and his wife Kátia Mesel, the disc was recorded in the studio of the TV University of Recife and the record label Rozenblit, also in the capital of Pernambuco. The cover is a design by Lula Côrtes, as aesthetically stained as the sound that the rough cardboard packaged, with a photo of Marconi Notaro in the center, with his face torn between the front cover and the back cover.
The album, unfortunately, as most of Rozenblit's catalog remains unpublished, awaiting a careful reprint official. The original LP is virtually impossible to find, but a great CDR copy is already circulating in the universe of collectors....


First ever reissue of this totally brilliant post-satwa 1973 brazilian private press featuring the core trio lula cortes, marconi notaro & ramalho. recorded just months after lula & lailson had released satwa, lula was back in the same recife studio with poet and friend marconi notaro to lay down another equally magical album. ramalho, who would go on to record the paberu 2lp with lula two years later, makes his recording debut here as well… somehow amidst the harsh government restrictions of 70s brazil, lula côrtes and his group of artist friends had managed to bypass the authorities and create a hugely creative micro-world of their own, recording, producing, and releasing this album with complete independence. no small feat in and of itself, no doubt, but the music is what makes this slab a true lost masterpiece… the whole album gushes forth with a sun baked spirit of the highest level, mixing tropicalia tinged folk-beat groovers, satwa style bliss trance ragas, pabiru favored lysergic jungle psych, and even a raging fuzz/wah soaked garage psych rocker. extremely mind melting from start to finish, with huge washes of rippling tape delay, electric & acoustic guitars, 12 string, tranced folk percussion, passionate yet mellow vocals, liquid electric bass, acid effects everywhere, and of course lula's mercurial & heart melting tricrdio (an instrument he made himself, something like a sitar/dulcimer hybrid). beautiful, melancholy and joyous all at the same moment, this is an album that after 33 years still sounds completely fresh & unique… sadly marconi passed away in 2000 having lived a life of obscurity even in his own town, yet leaving behind 7 published books of poetry and this stunning, lone album. this reissue has been authorized by maconi's daughter and lula côrtes to insure they receive the credit and funds they deserve, even if it comes 3 decades late…
