BANDA DO CASACO Hoje Há Conquilhas Amanhã Não Sabemos

“Hoje Há Conquilhas Amanhã Não Sabemos” is Banda do Casaco's third album, dated 1977 and one of the most acclaimed albums of Portuguese music. Anchoring part of its repertoire in the traditional songbook, Banda do Casaco is here realizing one of its greatest works to reinvent this very rich legacy. In effect, the subversion of the canons of what we generally know as a traditional song takes on surrealist contours in songs like "Geringonça" or "Despique". In others, as in the magnificent “País: Portugal”, musical and textual portraits of a Portugal and a Capital are offered - “gigantic and ill-considered head that is born between the legs of the Tagus” - that endure immersed in their collective ghosts and persist not to get rid of the libertine mouths, in which they comfortably installed themselves. The musical environments built here put Banda do Casaco at the level of the best folk rock that was made worldwide at the time - just remember that the English Steeleye Span had just released “Storm Force 10” and Jethro Tull saw “Songs From the Wood ”while the Malicorne Britons released their fourth album, the same name, and Alan Stivell published“ Before Landing ”. A pioneer in several aspects (no Portuguese group until then and very few have managed to publish seven albums of originals during a ten-year record career), Banda do Casaco knew how to reinvent itself with each album, never defrauding its audience (if it is that there was ever an audience in Portugal for them) and sailing downstream of all the most direct musical interventions, because, always without planning, everything always did in real time in the unreal time of this country Portugal.
