Kurt Cobain and Os Mutantes

Here’s a Brazilian interview with Kurt Cobain in which he spends the last minute or so enthusiastically talking about one of my favorite bands, Os Mutantes:

Os Mutantes were a psychedelic Brazilian band that were formed during that country’s Tropicalia movement in the late ’60s.  Their music was a thorn in the side of Brazil’s stifling political system and has been a treasure sought out by record collectors the world over.  David Byrne later helped expose the music to a larger world audience and they have gone on to perform alongside The Flaming Lips, a band that shares more than a few sonic similarities.  Here’s a song from the band’s debut album:

    Os Mutantes were part of my growing up in Brazil.

    Nirvana totally rocked my world in the 90s.
