Secos & Molhados

Formed in 1971 by Ney Matogrosso (vocalist), Gerson Conrad (vocalist/composer/violão) and João Ricardo (singer/composer/violão/harmonica), Secos & Molhados is inscribed in a privileged category of few bands and musicians who led Brazil from bossa nova through Tropicália then to Brazilian rock, a style which only blossomed in the '80s. Much of the group's importance, apart from the huge success of its first album, which sold 700,000 copies in 1973, was the heavy use of stage makeup and dramatic elements. These served as reference for a generation of underground bands which wouldn't accept MPB as their expression, finally drawing a definite outlook in Brazilian music in the '80s through collective contribution.

João Ricardo, a journalist from the newspaper Última Hora (São Paulo), leader and founder of Secos & Molhados, is a Portuguese from Ponte do Lima (1949). His father, the poet/critic João Apolinário, was a major influence in his literary life, and would even contribute lyrics to two songs in the opening album, and one for the second. The project Secos & Molhados ("dry and wet goods," a typical upcountry warehouse) was devised by Ricardo, who found in the two partners the perfect vehicles for his definite concepts. Ney, who would explode on the stage with his magnetic presence, his counter-tenor voice and extravagant androgynous outfit, remaining as the only successful artist of the trio after the end of the group, was introduced by singer/composer Luli, a common friend; Gerson was already a neighbor and friend of Ricardo's. In December, 1972, the group did a successful series of shows in the nightclub Casa de Badalação e Tédio (São Paulo). With the scenic/vocal talents of Ney's, the spectacle was highly visual, dynamic and energetic, exploring in a sexually ambiguous way the new sounds of the band. Texts of important poets like Cassiano Ricardo, Manuel Bandeira, Solano Trindade, and Vinícius de Moraes were used as song lyrics, which was unusual. In 1973, the success in live presentations yielded an invitation from Continental, and Secos & Molhados was recorded. The album sold 700,000 copies, a nationwide hit. Among the packed shows which followed, especially deserving of mention is the one performed in the Maracanãzinho stadium, for 25,000 people (which was recorded and released in 1980), and in the Presidente Médici Gymnasium, in Brasília. The following year, the group was featured on Mexican TV, and recorded the second LP, Secos & Molhados, which also sold very well. Secos & Molhados could have anticipated Brazilian rock, but were dissolved before that could happen, in 1974. Disagreements about finances arose between Gerson and Ney, and between father and son, who were directly responsible for the disbanding. João Ricardo released an album in 1975, João Ricardo (Philips), and tried to resurrect the band for four times, always with a different formation with no original members. Gerson continued to perform and record, with not much expression. Ney departed for a highly successful career, where by and by he evidenced a true reverence for MPB. ~ Alvaro Neder, Rovi
