This album came about in 2007 when Da Gatorra, eccentric Outsider musician and inventor of his own hybrid drum machine/guitar gadget (the Gatorra), was visited in Sao Paulo by one of his biggest fans, Super Furry Animal Gruff Rhys.

Set against the Gatorra's dirty garage-rock fuzz and metronomic tick-tock, the Brazilian's contributions are entirely in Portuguese so their anti-capitalist message remains obscure. But his anger is palpable, while the Welshman's more mellow interventions act as cryptic commentary.
