The legendary Peste & Sida

Who does not remember this mythical band from Lisbon, formed in 1986 by João San Payo on bass, Luís Varatojo on guitar, Eduardo Dias on drums, and João Pedro Almendra who later joined Orlando Cohen, and their many songs, such as “Veneno ”, “Furo na Cabeça”, “Gingão” or “Carraspana”.

Themes that even today make the oldest and youngest sing and dance, as yesterday in Corroios, where several generations attended to hear them, participated in the 4th Modern Music Competition of Rock Rendez-Vous, and edited for the Transmédia the Veneno LP with a very Punk aesthetic, the cover of the disc was even a copy of London Calling, by the British The Clash.

The group, however, did not stick to punk and styles such as reggae, rock, and even rap, became part of the repertoire, Portem-se Bem, an LP that has the theme “Sol da Caparica”, which is the version by Peste, of an American theme from the 60s, is their greatest success. But “Chuta Cavalo…E Morrerás”, the version of the popular Alentejo theme “Vamos Lá Saindo e Paulinha” was also very popular.

The band quickly conquered the public and even played the first parts of the English P.I.L., a group that was led by John Lydon, at the time still Johnny Rotten, lead singer of the Sex Pistols, was a high moment in the group’s career.
