The Polydor label released a few singles in the late 1960s that became very obscure and unknown, even to researchers. Most of these 7-inches are super psychedelic and very creative, but totally anti commercial. Own compositions, recordings and good productions, always with a top team. These works were not promoted or publicized by the label and very few copies circulated at the time. The impression is that the intention was to freeze or disappear with the artist in question. Vermelho is one of them, a work that is little talked about or known but that always attracts the attention of those who have access to these two tracks. Arrangement by Rogério Duprat, who was proud to have participated in these recordings, with Rafael Moreno on bass, Alberto Niccoli Junior on drums, Bolao on Sax and Marcos Ficarelli, the "Vermelho" on guitar and vocals.
Marcos already knew well the ways of recording and producing an album, having participated in historical groups of Brazilian rock in the '60s such as Top Sounds, Código 90 and Loupha, to name a few. At this stage, he had already acquired good knowledge of recording and studio management. Excerpts such as "And in the hole of the corners, to look for, is what I try in vain" presents the listener with the mood of the dark times of that time, and today seems a premonition about the difficulty of finding this single, even in private collections. 'Parabéns Meu Bem' and 'Gira-Gira' are tracks with an advanced rhythm for the time. Drums very well marked, with an original take and very close to North American funk. The bass is consistent and strong and the guitar full of effects and very reminiscent of the sound and energy of Jimi Hendrix, Santana and Blood Sweat & Tears. There is yet another musical layer created by Duprat, who managed to insert a mini orchestra along with the sound mass created by "Banda do Vermelho."
