Interview

Please give a brief history of the band, including current line up.

The band was formed in 1993 during a studio meeting of old friends that was playing in different other bands, the idea of the band was mine and so we decided to record some material that became the first set for the Thunderbolt warrior cd..from that time till today we continue working hard for the band and the skinhead scene with more material recorded and a new cd out called Gigantes do Brasil with 10 covers fom great brazilian Oi bands..we decided to do to celebrate the 500 years of Brazil's discovery!

Discography.

the Skulls - Gigantes do Brasil ( cd on Oi Brasil recs ..Brazil)

Describe your sound and the main themes to your lyrics.

We are a tradidional Oi band with brutal songs and some times singalong too..and the lyrics themes are free...but cannot escape from the street themes and the patriotic too!

Do you do any covers in your live set, if so what?

Covers from many brazilian oi bands..Bandeira de Combate, Voluntarios, Cruzada Patriotica, from European bands like last Resort...

What is the Punk/Oi scene like in your area?

In my city the scene is very small. the city I live in is a very small on seaside with lots of skate punk bands but not skinhead bands..only a few!!! the best scene is happening in sao Paulo and in the South of Brazil! great and lots of bands playing the pure skinhead rock!!!

If you could see any band play live, either of the past or present who would it be?

Brutall Attack , Last Resort and the 4 Skins!!! also the Bully Boys!!!

What question would you like to be asked in interviews, but you are never asked? And what is your answer?
