Contemporary Portugal I : Ornatos Violeta

An alternative rock band formed in the early nineties, they released their first album "Cão!"(Dog!) in 1997.

The band achieved its greatest success with their second album "O Monstro Precisa de Amigos"(The Monster need Friends).It was released in 1999 and is considered by many (myself included) the best Portuguese rock album ever!

The group split in 2002.

One of their songs from the last album.(It's in Portuguese but I hope you can still appreciate it)

"Ouvi Dizer"(loosely translates to "I heard a rumour")
