REPLICANTES is probably the most famous punk rock (not hardcore) band from Brazil, their three first LPs were release by major labels, but before that in 1984 they recorded a, very rare, self-released 7" on their label, Vortex. On the 7" you can hear much rawer versions of songs that became classics on their first LPs, "Surfista Calhorda" and "O Futuro é Vortex," and two other songs that were never rerecorded. This reissue was remastered from the original tapes and comes with an extra 16-page booklet full of info, flyers, text and photos by Rochelle Costi, a great brazilian artist that made the artwork for the 7".
*** The way Bigcartel sets up the shipping calculator, it is nearly impossible to calculate postage on orders of more than one item shipping to outside of the United States. That means that for orders of certain combinations of format / items, it is necessary to initially overcharge so as to not lose money on shipping. Sorry for this inconvenience but just last week I noticed that as it my shipping was set up, I was losing upwards of $12.00 ea in postage to non US based addresses for SEVERAL orders. For sustainability of the label, that cannot continue happening. What I am getting at, is that if you are overcharged for postage, I will issue a refund of the overpaid amount when I ship out your order. I will be checking every time. ***
